The only thing, not pro-  Ided will be food and beverage.  Cost per trip is $75, but each man need pay only $5.  special Services kicks in the additional $45 to make up the total cost.  With unit commander's approval, the $5 cost-per-man may be paid from the man's unit recreation fund.  Requests must be made no  later than Wednesday of the week prior to the requested date of the trip.  Personnel desiring to  make reservations may do so by calling MCAS Special  Services, ext.: 73520 or  72548,  Best results will be obtained  by groups of six. but indi-  vidual requests will be accepted. The boat will be chartered only after requests for a  total of six are received.  Cancellations cannot be  made after the boat is chartered a week in advance.
