    i have a question regarding B and B for the day before 25 June. is anyone else doing it? did you receive information for your sponsor families? i haven't gotten mine yet, and they said they would let you know by mid June of who your sponsor family is and whatnot. i already tried contacting by phone and email, but no luck. if this falls through the cracks, i'll have to taxi and hotel the night before. anyone else in the same boat?

    it's perplexing beyond all imagination. booking hotels now would be almost impossible. i guess we sleep outside and walk?

    Yeah, same here as aggie. An AOG B n' B representative called me yesterday with my sponsor's info. Hopefully you all should be receiving a similar call soon. :)

    I just signed up Monday night so I guess it could be a little while before I hear. And NChopeful,where at? Think they're short hosts, so they're putting some people in hotels?

    My son received his B&B host contact info about 10 days ago. When he called, his host told him that he is one of a total 6 appointees being hosted. I don't know what the average is but 6 seems like kind of a lot. Not that my son cares, of course... the more the merrier, right??!! :thumb:

    No surprise. The town is full of over 1000 appointees and family members, and there aren't that many places to stay. A couple of the B&Bs belong to parents of current and alumni mids!

    Should make for lively conversation, comparing experiences.

    Oops, speaking about Annapolis, but still applicable.

    Can't complain with those accommodations!!!

    not that anyone needs reminding, but... One week from right now, we will either be inprocessing or within hours of inprocessing. It's between 7-10am, correct? Anyway, enjoy this final week!

    Wow, six does seem like a lot. But, I think it'd be fun. My host is also housing more than one appointee, but there will only be two of us. :smile:

    they just sent me an email, and they said that they would call by the end of the day tomorrow with information. the person in charge said there was an unusual number of applicants this year, so things were slow.

    Who is it, you can PM me if you'd like. Just seeing if you might have mine, or one I know!

    Actually I found out he is in his year of "training" by going to school. He just got stationed there 3 months ago. I think he is an AOC for next year, not sure. His name is Scott Poteet....familiar?
