To facilitate more “gathering time” for the Class, The Reunion Committee has reserved the USNA O’ Club for those interested in lunch in the Yard.  We are limited to 300 diners so it will be on a first come, first serve basis.  This is NOT a formal scheduled event and is for those who would like to get together and stay on the Yard.  We are recommending that this be Classmates (and a plus one) or Classmates only to encourage maximum participation with the limitations of numbers.  With all of the current restrictions – this is a great option to get Classmates together.  We apologize in advance for the limit on attendees.  Register early if you want to attend.

Evening              Free for Company Gatherings 

We are encouraging Companies to set up gatherings of their Company Mates at a variety of locations.  Many are reserving AirBnB or homes that can accommodate smaller gatherings.  There was no venue available for the entire Class to gather and restrictions for inside events are still unknown.  We hope that all Companies and Classmates will use this “liberty” time to get together.
