Rose Festival Navy Ship Ride

SecNav Ray Mabus (L) and Mayor Hales
Each year during the Rose Festival in June, the U.S. Navy welcomes guests to ride their ships as they navigate up the Columbia River from Astoria to Portland.  The Blueback Council of the US Navy League annually coordinates these rides for the general public on one of the ships that visits Portland.  This yearís rides will occur on Thursday, June 9, when the ships debark Astoria in the morning and dock at the Portland seawall in late afternoon.

People interesting in riding with the crew of a US Navy guided missile destroyer as the ship sails up the Columbia into the Willamette to Portland and being welcomed by the Portland Fire Departmentís fireboat, should contact usnlmor@comcast.net.  The Blueback Council will send out an application and information about the ship ride to each person that responds.  Because applications are accepted on a first-come, first serve basis, applications should be send back as quickly as possible.  Due to US Navy security requirements, applications must be received by Blueback Council by Saturday, May 7.
