"No Good’s" Retirement Party

Crossfit Wilmington - Workout Of the Day picture

From Ron:
CrossFit Wilmington FAMILY,
  I know most of you are under the impression that I retired a year ago.  I can not confirm or deny this, however the OFFICIAL CEREMONY is next week.  
  You are all invited to the ceremony and the party the next day.  This includes all our NEW COMERS.  You are all invited!  You all know how important this BOX and its members are to me.  It is 90% of why I am staying in Wilmington and not moving back to Alaska, YET.   
   I know there is a power lifting seminar and a TRI on the 13th.  No problem, show up afterwards.  If you can only make one event that is fine.  
   I just want you all to know that you are all important to making the BOX what it is and I would be honored if you came and hung out with me as I finally close the book on my Active Duty Marine Corps Journey.  Thank you all.
Your Friend, Brother and Patriot,
MSgt Ron "No GOOD" Holmes


      Retirement Ceremony will be held on 12 March 2010 at 0900 (AM), you will need to be seated by 0845 (AM). Location is the Stone Bay area of Camp LeJeune NC.

  If you are traveling from Wilmington NC.  17 North, pass the turn for FOLKSTONE Rd immediately after that (SO SLOW DOWN) turn right onto  Sneads Ferry 172.  Continue on 172 till you come to the traffic light , known as 4 corners.  McDonald’s will be on your left, turn right on to 210 and travel approximately 3.5 miles  You will come to another traffic light, CVS will be on your left and Food Lion will be on your right.  Just pass Food Lion on your right will be RICK’s Restaurant and Sports Bar 510 Petes Way Sneads Ferry NC 28460.  Park in this parking lot, there will be a big White School bus that will take you to the ceremony.  This will avoid everyone having to get a pass.  Yes the bus will bring you back to your cars.  Plan on parking at Ricks by 0815 and getting on the bus at 0825. Thank you all for your flexibility.  

     This is important and I need a response to avoid delays at the gate.  Because this is a secure facility I have to provide a BY NAME ROSTER of those that will be driving.  If you are planning on attending please let me know No Later Than 9 March 2010.  This will give the Marines supporting this to create a roster for the gate and allow you to enter will little delay.  

      The Ceremony is planned to be outside in front of the MARSOC HQ building and will last one hour.  In the event of rain, ceremony will move to the Marine Reserve building, gymnasium. Which is less than one mile away. 
      Traveling from CrossFit Wilmington on Market Street plan on one hour of travel time.  If you are planning on attending I suggest you leave no later than 0715 this will provide enough time for travel and any unforeseen mix ups at the gate and or change to the alternate location.   I will add again that you need to be in your seats at 0845.  There are actually two retirements and a building dedication this day so the time line is tight and will be followed.  

     The following day 13 March 2010 is the retirement party.
