Since I have had that responsibility for several events, I will address them herein and welcome your comments/questions:

Supe’s Briefing (and Alumni Association CEO President’s briefing)

 The Supe’s Briefing will take place immediately after the Friday lunch at the club. It will probably require changing of seats. We will be assisted by the club personnel in deciding on the arrangement and making it happen. It will be followed by Jeff Webb’s briefing. Jeff is the new Alumni Association President and CEO. You will enjoy meeting him. You are welcome to attend even if you did not pay for and attend the luncheon.


 The Brigade Parade will have a section of seats reserved for us. Since we will be the only class having a reunion at that time it will not be a problem.


 The lacrosse match against Lafayette will require a $10 admission ticket. We are not making that a part of the registration process so that you will not have to decide in advance (and are able to change your mind later) regarding attendance. Tickets may be purchased at the stadium just before entry. We are assured that there will not be a shortage.


 The Terwilliger Hall tour is scheduled for Saturday morning. The chances are that you have never seen Terwilliger Hall. It contains many, many awards won by Navy teams and individual Navy Athletes including our “Class Legends” selected by you. All classes’ Distinguished Graduates (including our five) are recognized in a separate room.


 Our folks may come any time between 0800 and 1300. From 0800-1100 they serve breakfast, from 1100-1300 they put out brunch foods.  Classmates may sit with the mids or at their own table. Reservations cost $10 each but no tickets will be issued. We will pay for the number of tix charged.

Any questions or comments? I am always available.

If a classmate is trying to make a reservation for earlier than April 13, 2023 or to stay after April 16, 2023, the site would state no availability because it is outside of the contracted dates.  The Westin suggests they make the reservations for the dates that have been contracted which are April 13 , April 14 and April 15 first and then send our rooms coordinator Sujin Lee a message of the early arrival or later departure and she will check availability and extend the reservation if there is availability.  Sujin Lee can be reached at slee@heihotels.com
