    All Hands

    Be advised that the Queen Mary (QM) has just filed for BANKRUPTCY

     

    BANKRUPTCY was filed on Jan 20th 2021.

    The QM has been closed since last May and all my points of contacts are no longer responding

    Includes the current owner of the QM. The City of Long Beach.

    We still had an Agreement with the QM for reunion in September 20th 24th 2021

    I am not sure if this is still valid with the Bankruptcy?

    So we are kind of out of luck unlike our sister ships

    BUT 

    The Combined Tender Association has been invited to join a number of our sister ships Reunions this year that start in Late August and Med September ?

    The SKULL and Crossbones.

    The Typical Black Flag with the Skull & Crossbones was not the Pirate's death flag. When hoisted, it indicated if you gave up your cargo you would be set free.

    Sure would you believe this ?
