A few reminders:

Tickets: you don’t need tickets to come to your tailgater, but this game is so important for the team, it would be great if you could scrounge some tickets and get into the stadium to cheer Navy on!

Want to Volunteer? We could always use volunteers for food / menu planning / selection, heavy lifting (set up and shut down), etc., but – again – what’s most important is that you come.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO REGISTER TO COME! It just helps us plan, but we always have stragglers and we always plan for stragglers.

Donations: Just donate whatever you want, nothing, or in kind. What’s most important is that you join us! We’re bringing beer, wine, soft drinks, water, coffee, tea, and a few odds and ends, so there’s no need to bring drinks along!

If there’s a chance you might come, please click here and register by Thursday night so that we can start buying food on Friday!

Beat SMU!

– Glee Club Alumni Attending Reunion – please read!

Posted: 10/21/2019

Class of ’89 Glee Club Alumni! You are invited to sing at the Class Memorial Service in Memorial Hall on Friday, 10/25 at 10:00 AM.  We will be presenting “Amazing Grace” at the beginning of the service, and “Eternal Father” at the conclusion.

There is an ’89 Glee Club Reunion – hosted by Shawn James – planned for 6PM on Thursday, 10/24. Chuck Messenger has been coordinating the music. In addition to singing some of our old standards “just for fun” at this event, we will be rehearsing “Amazing Grace” and “Eternal Father” for the Memorial Service.  More information on the Glee Club Reunion gathering is posted on Facebook

You do NOT need to attend the Glee Club Reunion in order to sing at the Memorial Service.

All singers, please meet in the Rotunda at 0900 on Friday 10/25 to go through the music.  That is a little on the early side, but we want to ensure we have ample time to determine how we are standing and to go through both hymns.

Here are links to the hymns:

Amazing Grace

Eternal Father:

Please contact Lisa Skaggs Thomas (click to open up your email client) if you have any questions!

If you are not going to the Reunion Gathering, would you please RSVP to Lisa so we have an approximate head count?

Thank you so much, and hopefully we’ll see you at the Glee Club Reunion AND at the Memorial Service!”

The retirement palooza is in need of JO/Midn sideboys and/or participants for Old Glory. There may be some JOs coming from the USNA staff but we would love for as many participants as possible to have some connection to the class. They need not be USNA mids or JOs. ROTC is fine if they are 89 offspring; that’s connection enough.

We realize summer training will have begun so availability will likely be limited, but if your JO or Mid is interested and available, please contact me (edwin.henderson89@gmail.com) ASAP. Crunch time is fast approaching.

Thx all. Fast approaching the 30 day chow call!

Cheers!

Edwin

– Beat Army 2018 Tailgater!

Posted: 11/27/2018

Click here to get all the gouge and register.

It’s that time of year again! Since 2003, we’ve become accustomed to rolling into this game with a head of steam. Now we’re limping in as the underdog, but Army is still an awesome time to get together with classmates and shipmates that we haven’t seen in years, so grab your tickets and come join us on December 8th in Philly! Glenn Barker, Andy Caufield, and our other volunteers look forward to hosting you!

Reminders:

  1. We typically have between 150-225 people show up (depends on weather), so share this with friends and coworkers! We can take it!
  2. You don’t need to register to come (so don’t miss us because you forgot to register), but you’ll be doing us a favor if you do! It helps us plan how much food and drink we need to buy and haul up to Philly in the trailer. If you’re not sure, go ahead and register and then donate when you get there.
  3. We’ll be getting there pretty early to set up (8?), but please plan on the main party going from 10-2 (kickoff is at 3).

Let me know if you have any questions, and BEAT ARMY!
