Upcoming Cal Poly Retired Faculty and Staff Club Events
October 12, 2017: Vandenberg Air Force Base
On Thursday, October 12, 2017, begin the 2017-2018 academic year by joining your fellow Cal Poly Retired Faculty and Staff members to learn about the Vandenberg Air Force Base. We will visit launch sites, observe dog training, visit a naval ship crash site, and hear a base overview. Air Force Staff Sergeant Shane Phipps is scheduled to be the tour guide and will provide information and answer your questions about base facilities. This special tour is being provided for us, because of the special relationship with Cal Poly. This tour is not provided during other public events. The following URL site provides a seven-minute video of 2016-year review of activities on the base. http://www.vandenberg.af.mil/News/Video/dvpTag/dogs/
NOTE: Each member may bring one guest only.
TIME: Charter bus leaves the Performing Arts Center at 7:15 a.m. and returns at approximately 2:00 p.m. Our gourmet box lunch will be served during our return trip.
COST: $18 (includes chartered bus and box lunch). Cal Poly University Development has subsidized our tour which is much appreciated!
PARKING: If you have an Emeritus parking pass, park in the Grand Avenue structure adjacent to the Performing Arts Center. You can use any Sponsored Guest, Staff, or General parking space. Remember that Emeritus passes can be ticketed in expired meter parking spaces or handicap parking spaces without a handicap placard. There will be reserved event parking spaces on the upper level for anyone who does not have a parking pass.
WALKING, STANDING, AND STAIRS: There are no stairs and minimal walking is required. The dog training demonstration will require 45 minutes of standing, but you may bring a portable chair that will be loaded in the storage area on the bus.
