4.    SHIP VISIT

Arrangements are being made for a visit to a Navy warship. Because the
visit has not yet been confirmed, we can not yet mention the name of the
ship. Suffice to say it is one of the biggest and newest warships in the
fleet and if all goes as planned, the ship visit will take place the
morning of Tuesday September 30th. Several members of the reunion
committee are working hard to make this visit a reality. I'm sure it
will be a tour you won't want to miss.

5.    ROOM RESERVATIONS

ATTENTION ALL HANDS. THIS IS IMPORTANT!

As you all know by now... Reunion Headquarters will be at the Town &
Country Resort & Convention Center. There is a block of 100 rooms
available for the Horne Reunion. The rooms are being offered at the
fantastic rate of $99 per night (1 or 2 people). The Town & Country
permitted us reserve these rooms without any deposit. The Hotel has
informed us they can not hold these rooms for us indefinitely, and will
soon begin offering unreserved rooms to the general public. Reserve your
room TODAY! You can reserve by telephone or online. Your credit card
will be charged for one night only. You may cancel up to 72 hours before
check-in time and receive a full refund. So even if you are still not
sure you are coming to the reunion... RESERVE YOUR ROOM TODAY... if it
turns out you can not join us... the hotel will provide a full refund
provided you cancel at least 72 hours before check-in. IT'S EASY TO MAKE
YOUR ROOM RESERVATIONS:

1: PHONE: Call 1 800 772 8527 and tell them you are reserving a room for
the USS Horne 2003 Reunion.
2: ONLINE: CLICK HERE: http://towncountry.com/framereserv.html Scroll
down and find the link for Horne Reservations. Click on the Horne Link.
A password is required. The super secret password is: 30BOAT (ONE WORD).
Using this password will entitle you to the special HORNE REUNION per
night room rates: 1 or 2 people: $99 - 3 people: $119 - 4 people: $139

BY THE WAY:
It has been brought to my attention several people have made
reservations at the hotel for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday... but did NOT
reserve a room for Wednesday the 1st. Keep in mind... if you do not
reserve a room for the 1st... you must check out by noon on October
1st... and when the Dinner Cruise is over on the night of October 1st,
you won't have any where to stay. Please review the reunion schedule
carefully when making your room reservations. Changing your reservations
is as easy as calling 1 800 772 8527

6.    SAN DIEGO ATTRACTIONS

I have posted a large collection of links to San Diego area attractions.
They include Sea World, San Diego Zoo & Wild Animal Park, Old Town,
Golf, Sportfishing, Surfing, Casinos, Guided Tours, Scuba Diving,
beaches and more. You'll find these links at
www.usshorne.net/reunion2003.htm

7.    HORNE SEARCH

I have recently added a new search feature to the Horne Website. You'll
find it at www.usshorne.net/search.htm
You can type in a key word and it will search the Horne Website and
display results on a separate Google search page. Try it out!

8.    BATTLESHIPS GAME

All work and no play makes for a dull Website. So I've added the classic
Battleships game. There's nothing special to download. Take a look and
fire away. www.usshorne.net/battleships.htm Have fun!

9.    GIVE-AWAYS

The long delayed Horne give-aways will resume on Friday August 1st. Give
away items include Decommissioning Mugs, Horne Wall Clock, and Horne
Ballcaps. Winners will be selected from those who have paid their Dues
and announced on Friday August 1st. Good luck.

10: COMPUTER TUNE-UP (PC ONLY - SORRY MAC)

Not actually Horne related... but since all of you are using a computer,
you may find the following helpful. It's my 4 STEP COMPUTER TUNE UP.
I've developed it over the past few months and most recently used it on
my sister's computer. She was convinced she needed a new computer
because her computer was slowing down and crashing a lot. Today it's as
good as new. The 4 STEP COMPUTER TUNE UP will take a couple hours to
complete... but you won't need to baby-sit your computer the whole time.
The Tune up will:
Scan and remove Viruses, Spyware and Scumware. Provide you with the most
recent Microsoft Security Updates and includes a Disc Defragmentation
Procedure. Best of all... it's totally FREE!

STEP 1:
VIRUS SCAN: Scan and Remove viruses and worms:
McAfee offers a free virus scan.
CLICK HERE: http://clinic.mcafee.com/clinic/ibuy/campaign.asp?cid=4478
When done... proceed to STEP 2.

STEP 2: SPYWARE SCAN: Scan and Remove spyware and scumware:
(Read more about Scumware at www.scumware.com)
Ad-Aware 6.0 is now available for free:
CLICK HERE:
http://www.networkingfiles.com/Cookie/downloads/adawaredownload.htm
When done... proceed to STEP 3.

STEP 3: WINDOWS UPDATE: Update Microsoft Windows and Internet Explorer:
(get the latest updates which includes security updates)
Microsoft offers Free Updates/Upgrades:
CLICK HERE: http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/en/default.asp
When done... proceed to STEP 4

STEP 4: DEFRAGMENT: On your computer... go to START then PROGRAMS then
ACCESSORIES then SYSTEM TOOLS then DISK DEFRAGMENTER (instructions may
vary, see your system manual for details)
Turn off all screensavers, close all programs and begin defrag, scan
disk may also be ran. This will detect and remove disc errors)
THIS MAY TAKE A WHILE. ONCE YOU GET IT STARTED... WALK AWAY AND GO HAVE
A BURGER.

When done... your computer should be running as good as new. Good luck.

That's all for this issue... and that's enough! Remember... please check
your email address on the decklog to make sure it is correct. Shipmates
can contact you if it's wrong. And don't forget... reserve your room at
the Town & Country Today... and get your Horne Reunion Packages in by
August 15th. On behalf of the entire Reunion Committee... we look
forward to meeting all of you and hope you will try your best to make it
to the reunion.

As always... if you have any questions about the Reunion... feel free to
contact Reunion President Rufus Reaves: horner-@webtv.net or me:

So long for now!
