1715 Fleet Society March 2017 Conference and Dinner
Greetings to all of my friends in the shipwreck community.
By now, you’re aware of the fact that the 1715 Fleet Society is sponsoring, in conjunction with the St. Augustine Historical Society, a two-day conference and dinner to be held at Flagler College in St. Augustine on March 16-18, 2017.
The tickets for the conference and dinner have been available since September 30.
These can be purchased online at 1715fleetsociety.com and accessing the merchandise link. There you will find all the information necessary for purchasing the tickets.
The purpose of this email is to let my friends know that we believe this upcoming conference and dinner will be every bit as educational and enjoyable as the conference and dinner we sponsored for the 300th Anniversary.
The tickets to the March events are limited to 100. While we would like to sell-out, we’re not there yet but the ticket sales are brisk.
Information concerning the conference, the conference agenda, and scheduled events can all be found on our website here: http://www.1715fleetsociety.com/2017-international-conference-tickets-available/. Membership in the Fleet Society offers a discount to this, and other events, and we encourage you to become a member of the society. You can find more information about membership here: http://www.1715fleetsociety.com/1715-fleet-society-membership/.
Also note that the Fleet Society is publishing a book that will be available in the Spring of 2017. While details of the book are a surprise, I can tell you that it will be a limited edition with only 100 copies made available. They will each be numbered 1 through 100; with the first 25 being signed and numbered. The book will make a perfect edition to your fleet library, and, by the way, it is a hard-cover edition. More information about the book will be available at the conference where they will be available for purchase.
Anyway, I just wanted you to get this update on our plans and encourage you to join us at Flagler College in March 2017.
Fleet Society Director
