2019 Annual Meeting
April 24-27, West Point, NY
Dear Grant Association Members:
We wanted to send out a short update on the details for the Ulysses S. Grant Association meeting. This update will address some of the common questions and concerns that we have received from members who wish to attend the meeting.
1. Some of our members have had difficulty reaching the Bear Mountain Inn and making reservations. The easiest number to call for reservations is the Hotel Direct line: 845-786-2731 and dial extension 1000. Ask for the front desk. There are still rooms available at the Cottages and the Lodge. Twelve rooms are available upstairs and twelve are available downstairs in the Lodge. If you are not uncomfortable using stairs, please book your room upstairs (number 200 rooms) and enjoy the great view of the Hudson River. There are still rooms available at the Holiday Inn, which offers a conventional hotel experience.
2. We also wanted clarify that on Wednesday April 24, a bus will be waiting at Newark airport in Terminal C to take members to the Bear Mountain Inn. The bus will depart Terminal C at 12:30pm. After landing, take an “airtrain” to Terminal C and then look for “Ground Transportation.” We are using West Point Tour buses.
3. Additionally, some of our members have had difficulty completing or going through the USMA visitor security clearance procedures. We are working on simplifying the security check and we will send out a specific update on this matter.
We understand that some of you might have questions about the meeting and some of the events as this continues to move forward, so please give me a call or send me an email, and I will be happy to assist you in any way I can. We look forward to seeing all of you in New York!
