Mini-reunions are held in Florida in the Tampa area in spring March / April.  In 2005 the reunion will be held at the AmeriSuites Tampa Airport Westshore.  In 2003 and 2004, it was held in St. Petersburg, FL at the Comfort Inn and Suites on 34th Street North.  The mini-reunions have been held every year in March since 1994.  Before 2003, the reunions were in Clearwater at the Hampton Inn Airport.

Many reunion attendees live in Florida or are snowbirds for the winter months.  Several others travel to Florida just to be with the group again during the year.

The atmosphere is very casual and general activities include a Friday picnic or BBQ, sometimes orange and grapefruit picking at Captain Leavitt's, dinner Saturday night and loads of laughing and fun in the hospitality room.  As the years go by, the activities change depending on the location of the hotel and what gets planned.

Many spend the days playing tourist with all the many activities and places of interests.  Night times are usually reserved for spending time enjoying each others company in the hospitality room.
