  The group was founded in 1989 by a few friends who kept in contact after their assignment to Chitose, Japan with the ASA in the late 1950's. The purpose of the group is to hold annual reunions, publish a twice a year newsletter, and  help you relocate old friends. The group is a fraternal organization regardless of rank with an even mix of career types and single termers.  It is governed by a 6 member board.  Day to day activities and routine matters are handled by the elected officers, the President, Vice President and the Secretary. The purpose of  this site is to establish an "electronic presence" for the group on the World Wide Web.   If you've ever been assigned, attached to, or a dependent with ASA Chitose, you are encouraged to contact the group by e-mail, phone, or regular mail. (Mail address: ASA Chitose Association, 3091 Blackbird CT, Melbourne FL 32935).  Please be sure to include your home address so that a newsletter can be sent to you.

*****Important changes to the 2016 Reunion in Michigan.*****

It is very important that your receipt of this message be confirmed to Mary Calder and Roy Gettz . There has been issues with our hotel selected for the reunion which could cause problems when making reservations.

1. This the latest and hopefully final information put out for the hotel for our reunion. The hotel selected is the Holiday Inn Express and Suites Dearborn/SW at 24041 Michigan Ave, Dearborn MI 48128. To make reservations call 800-719-5540 and mention the ASA Chitose Reunion, any problems mention Book Code ACA to get $89 a night plus tax rate. Pay no attention to cancellation policy, by contract it is cancel by 6 PM on arrival date. We are working to correct this. Get your reservations in early, it is expected to be a sell out period due to a big football game in that period. As a reminder the dates for the reunion are Wednesday 9/21 to check out on Sunday 9/25.

2. The above hotel info supersedes the info in our latest News Letter which is in the mail. All other information regarding the reunion is correct. If you have question, Mary Calder can be reached on 313-399-8163.

3. Our original Hotel as reported in Fall 2015 newsletter and followed up with additional information on a Chitose update on March 18, 2016 was the Holiday Inn Express 734-857-6200 and the Hampton Inn 734-699-2424 which is right next door, both in Belleville MI 48111 Reservations at this hotel should be cancelled.
