The 2015 Sixth Region Spring Meeting will be held on April 9-12 in at  John Ascuaga's Nugget Hotel and Casino in Sparks, NV.  This is an opportunity to learn more about AUSA, meet and exchange ideas with members from throughout the Pacific Northwest and enjoy visiting the Reno-Tahoe area in a beautiful time of the year. 

Thursday evening we look forward to you joining us at a ‘Hospitality Mixer.’ Relax at the bar, snack on hot and cold hors d’oeuvres, renew old friendships, make new ones and enjoy the camaraderie.

Friday is a special day featuring the ‘Grandeur and History’ coach tour. Departing the Nugget drive under the ‘Biggest Little City’ arch; then head south touring Carson City and the Governor’s Mansion.  Further south, we’ll enjoy a Basque lunch in Gardnerville where you may wish to sample the famous (infamous?) Picon Punch.  Basque cuisine is a treat.  After lunch, we head up Kingsbury Grade (be sure to bring your cameras) to Lake Tahoe. Following the lake’s eastern shore, you’ll pass the sites of TV’s Bonanza and the 1960 Winter Olympics, make several stops to view the lake, then visit the Donner Memorial, Truckee, California and return to the Nugget.  A professional tour guide and history buff provides ongoing dialogue of the passing sites and answers questions.

 

Saturday will address the Region’s business with a variety of presentations, a ‘working’ lunch, and our Business Meeting. That evening, enjoy sharing in the excitement of the Sixth Region Awards presentations, a ‘Black Tie’ dinner, formal portraits, and dancing.  The guest speaker will be Caleb Cage, a West Point graduate and the co-author of The Gods of Diyala which documents Cage’s year in Iraq as an Army company commander.  Mr. Cage was appointed director of the Nevada Office of Veterans Services in July, 2010, and became Governor Sandoval’s Director of Military and Veterans Policy in 2013.
