It's official. The Sink Day for the Vandenberg has been set for Thursday 15 May 2008. At this point, the ship is still in Virginia, and I do not have a time period yet for the movement of the ship to Key West. That will be provided later.
I have talked to Joe Weatherby and he informs me that work on developing a schedule of activities for sink week has just started. They hope to have a number of events, including get-togethers for the different groups, press conferences, individual interviews to provide inputs to the history project for the planned Vandy museum/science center, and various social activities. They have just begun to think about blocking groups of rooms (and seeking favorable rates) for those of us who want to attend the sinking. I don't have any info yet about boat charters to take folks out to watch the actual sinking, but I am sure that they will be thinking about that problem too.
Weatherby says please keep an eye on [URL=http://www.bigshipwrecks.com/]this website[/URL] as updates will be coming more frequently from now on.
Please pass this info on to anyone else that you know that might be interested.
