Reunion Update #3 (as of April 13, 2017)

Reunion Update #2

Posted: 3/16/2017

Your 35th Reunion Committee Chairman, Rich Clyborne, has provided this update, as of March 13, 2017:

Reunion Update #2
I apologize for the delay in updating everyone with this information and also for the fragmentation.  Your Reunion Committee is hard at work trying to finalize all of the arrangements for the items on our schedule of events.  I at least wanted to give you some of the confirmed information as I know a lot of you are anxious to finalize your plans.  Once again please send any reunion questions you may have to me at rbclyborne@gmail.com.

Registration Website
We are looking to finalize all pricing and reunion information by the end of March.  Once all event information has been finalized we will stand up the registration website.  We will be using the Alumni Association’s website as the host for the registration page.  We will once again have an ala carte style for choosing and paying for events.  I strongly recommend that everyone visit the Alumni Association website and update their contact information particularly their email addresses.  You will have to log in to the Alumni Association website in order to register!

We will continue to post lodging information as it is finalized (first update below) between now and when the registration website is up and running.

Lodging
We are initially contracting with 4 hotels.  I am still working out contract details with three of those hotels but should have them wrapped up this week (next week at latest).  The only hotel that we have a completed contract with is the Doubletree Annapolis.  Here’s the information for registering:

Doubletree Annapolis (off Riva Rd out by Annapolis Mall)
Room Block – 40 rooms for Thursday (07 Sep), Friday (08 Sep) and Saturday (09 Sep)

The other three hotels room rates are equal or less than the Doubletree; I will supply their info once I have finalized the contracts.

35th Reunion Set for 7-10 Sept 2017

Posted: 2/14/2017

Good Morning, ’82!  

The Reunion dates have been set! On Thursday, February 9, the American Athletic Conference announced the 2107 football schedule. Your 35th Reunion Committee, led by Rich Clybourne (1), sprang into action, held a vote, and announced the next day that the dates you have been waiting 35 years to learn are September 7-10, 2017. Please note that this is not the official Homecoming. Our football opponent will be Tulane (per the song, the one that Army doesn’t play).

From Rich: “A bit of planning has taken place already but the lion’s share will be happening over the next 3-5 months and I ask for your patience and understanding as the reunion sub-committees finalize the details for venues, pricing, dates and times, etc. for reunion weekend events. Jane will be putting out a class-wide email when we have a registration website established and the rest of the reunion info ready to go. To keep the reunion gouge accurate and up to date I’m asking that you send your reunion questions directly to me at rbclyborne@gmail.com. Facebook and other social media can be a great way to get the word out but sometimes false information can be promulgated. I promise if you send me an email I will do my best to get an answer for you in a timely manner.”

To ensure that you are receiving email blasts from Goat One Jane and the Reunion Committee, please be sure that your profile is current at www.USNA.com.  Login and go to My Account to update. Also, check out the class Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/usna82/ and our class website at http://1982.usnaclasses.net/  I guarantee that this will be the best 35th Reunion our great class has ever had. You do not want to miss it. See you in Crabtown September 7-10, 2017!

Navy vs UConn Tailgate Info

Posted: 9/9/2016

From OIC Tailgaters, Matt Cissel:

GO NAVY Football!!!

I’m predicting a beautiful day for NAVY FOOTBALL this Saturday (a little warmer than last week and not a 3 day weekend).

I hope that you can take advantage of this opportunity to enjoy the weather and be on hand to watch NAVY take on UCONN. Always a great opportunity to meet the midshipman of 1st Company, renew acquaintances, make new friends and cheer on the Blue & Gold.  Along with the food (Chicken Fajitas), there will with ice cold drinks (water, sodas and beer)

If you can bring an appetizer, side dish or desert, it’s always appreciated.

Cost is still $5 per person (this money goes to reimbursing 1st Company Wardroom Mess)

Kick-off is at 3:30, so we plan on being set up and ready to go by around 2:00

Remember, we are located on the Navy side, South end (along Taylor Ave, Spot 43).  Closer for those of you who want to watch the March On.

Looking forward to seeing everyone,

Go Navy, Beat UCONN!!!

Again, please forward this email to anyone I might have missed and cc me on it, so I can add them to the list.  If you’re on the list and need to update, delete, or whatever send me an email.

R/Matt
