Dear Midway-Class veterans and guests, there is exciting news to report. Reunion planners have been working with the Public Affairs Office of the Secretary of the Navy, Richard Spencer; and in our communications we feel we have a reasonably good chance that he will accept our invitation to be our honored guest and banquet speaker. We'll know within a couple of weeks if SecNav will be honoring us with his presence at the reunion. And when we find out, carrier-mates of the USS Midway, USS Franklin D. Roosevelt and USS Coral Sea, you'll be the first to know!
Click here to register for the reunion. On this web page you can register online by credit card or download the Registration Form found in the link in the upper-right hand corner, make your choices, and mail the form along with your check to our reunion planning company, AFRI. You'll also find the Reunion Program at the upper right, which describes the reunion events, activities and times in some detail. This program will help you make your choices on the Registration Form.
If you're planning to stay at the Wyndham San Diego Bayside, we recommend that you first check out our reservation exchange program, outlined in the paragraph immediately below, before you pay higher rates. If there isn't a room available through that option, phone the Wyndham at 1-619-232-3861, ext. 6021, to get their current room rates. Or click here to open our passkey web page to make your room reservation online. If you find a lower rate at a nearby hotel, grab it and take a taxi or Uber to get to the Wyndham. Our goal is to have as many Midway-Class veterans and guests attend this reunion as possible. The USS Midway Museum's flight deck will hold us all on banquet night, with a little bit of room left over!
Click here to learn about our reservation exchange program, if you are interested in one of our original $153.00 a night rooms. They can still be had!
We'll see you and your family and guests in San Diego in the spring of 2019, Shipmates! You absolutely do not want to miss this unique reunion of the veterans of these three mighty ships of the Midway Class. Click here to view the flyer on the 2019 "Three Sisters" Reunion.

Remember to bring a prize from your home state for our raffles and fundraisers. Donations go to supplement the costs of reunion events as well as to the USS Midway Museum's charitable programs. These fundraisers are lots of fun, and we raise money for a good cause-and you could walk away with a nice memento of the 3 Sisters reunion!
Also be aware that all forms and payments must be received by AFRI by April 8, 2019. After that date, reservations will be accepted on a space available basis.
If you have questions about the reunion, contact reunion chairman Jim Hayter at phone no. 703-264-0542 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
