On Friday morning we took a guided bus tour of the US Air Force Academy in particular the three Chapels. The tour continued to the Garden of the Gods and then on to Old Colorado City. Saturday we again boarded the bus to visit the Broadmoor Hotel on Cheyenne Lake and then into Cheyenne Canyon to visit "Eagles Nest" overlooking "Seven Falls" and returning by way of Old Colorado City. Sunday we had a morning business meeting of the Association the highlight of which was the presentation of gifts to our retiring Reunion Chairman and acting Secretary Bert Bickel. The evening banquet was entertained by magician Mark Whitehouse then off to the hospitality room before packing for the return trip.
