You may make your Hotel Reservation any time at the Renaissance Austin Hotel by using the link below to book a room in the “US Submarine Veterans” room block no later than July 26, 2019 to get the group rate.
Due to excessive cost of group tours suggested by the tour company event planners, and to reduce cost for you and the Association, The Association has elected to NOT provide pre-planned tours.
A variety of tour information, times, price and transportation options will be made available to you in your Welcome Packet and displayed in the Hospitality Room for your convenience. This will allow you the opportunity to choose activities you prefer after you arrive.
The Austin Visitor Center offers a great tourist packet, free for the asking! You may request packet on line or by phone, make your request early so you have plenty of time to view and make your selections. You may choose to make all your tour plans prior to your arrival in Austin!
Additionally, Lafayette shipmates may register with the USSVI and take advantage of tours and activities offered by them. You may view their schedule, activities and tours on the USSVI website www.ussviconvention.org/2019/ (membership not required to view information) at your leisure.
Lafayette shipmates are welcomed to visit the USSVI Vendor Booths specializing in submarine items and the USSVI Hospitality Room (cash bar) where you might meet shipmates from other boats you served on.
The USSVI will host a WELCOME ABOARD PARTY (convention registration required) on August 15. All boats having their reunions at this time may choose to attend this meet and greet
