2019 Reunion Schedule



Transportation from McGee Tyson airport in Knoxville direct to the Greystone Lodge in Gatlinburg has been arranged with Discount Taxi (865) 755-5143 at a greatly reduced rate.  As you enter the baggage claim area, there will be a table set up for “435th Enroute Reunion”.  This arrangement can be made available 9, 10, and 11 October.  The taxi will be a mini-van for up to five people and their luggage.  Each trip will cost $80 per trip regardless of the number of passengers.  Other taxis may charge as much as $80 per passenger for this trip.  I will do all I can to arrange free transport back to the airport by car pooling.

If anyone flying into Knoxville, will e-mail their flight number, arrival time, and number of passengers I will try to coordinate groups with a shorter wait time to gain up to five people per taxi.  A short wait for other arrivals can save a lot of money.  If you also include your departure flight and time I will work car pooling for departures.

Send Flight info and arrival/departure times, and number of passengers to me at johnsonfloyd18@gmail.com.

NOTICE: We must have advance notice of enough people to take advantage of this offer.  Otherwise, none of the above applies, and individuals will be personally responsible for obtaining transport which can then cost as much as $80 per person.
