50th Reunion Schedule

Latest updates:

5/19/24: Registration link is being edited and will be posted soon. There will be a blast class email announcing when it is live.

Classmates, two updates (4/18/24):

  • The registration site for our 50th reunion will open on 18 May 2024. I know----for months now---- I have been saying next week. It is more complicated than any of our previous reunions and I apologize for my optimism.   
  • One module you will find on our registration site is for family members of our fallen classmates. I ask you to think about reaching out to family members and see if they would be interested in attending any part of the reunion, but particularly the memorial service. I believe the class should be able to cover their registration fees. If it turns out to be a large number, which hopefully it will be, we will figure the support out. Contacting family members is probably best done by company members coordinating who will be the POC. Fallen classmates may be found, under Last Call, at our class website.

The website also has, and will have, the most current schedule.

Classmates, the American Athletic Conference released schedules today. Our 50th reunion will be 19-22 September 2024 Below is a schedule of the major events so you can start planning when you want to arrive. Registration will be available soon on the website. Many vendors would not sign a final agreement, with pricing, until we knew the exact date. I will have a list of hotels soon. Hotels would not sign a contract without the exact date. They needed to know the date for their availability.

We will need tickets to attend the 50th reunion tailgate, which now will be from 1:30-7:15.  The time is slightly different from the schedule I sent last week. The football tickets are not included in the reunion fees.

To purchase tickets to sit with the class use the link below.  The lower section will be section 1 where we have 300 seats (these are closest to our tailgate). The upper section is 101, right above it.  The least expensive seats are in the endzone.

Also note, you may select subgroups to sit with (your company, chess club, athletic team etc).

Much more to follow.
