Drill Weekend Reservations


We have a group reservation at Maders for Saturday night at 6:30 PM of the DET-4 Drill Weekend. The reservation is for 22 persons. We need confirmation from members and spouses wanting to go, as well as their choice of appetizer, IN ADVANCE, so I can lock-on final headcount as a courtesy to Maders. I need NLT 6 SEPT.

For those wanting to know the restaurant is about 4 long blocks from the Brew Suites hotel.

Maders does have valet parking.

We need to get this posted to the DET-4 site. Thanks,

S/F
