Shout Outs

Frequently Asked Questions

Please review our Frequently Asked Questions to have an enjoyable event.

How much is the registration fee and what does it cover?

The registration fee for the 1980 Reunion is $80.00 charged to classmates only. This fee covers the administrative cost associated with planning the reunion, including but not limited to, ancillary tailgate costs, programs, usage fees, signage, printing, nametags, etc. Help the reunion committee by making plans early. After 24 Sept. 2021, the registration fee will be $120.00 for classmates.

Can I pay with cash or check?

No, to keep efficient processes, we are only accepting credit card transactions - cash and check are not accepted.

Is there a benefit to registering early?

We encourage people to register as soon as possible so we can plan the best event experience at the most reasonable price. The prices for registration and the reunion events will go up after September 24, 2021, so save money by registering early.

When does registration close?

Registration will be available through November 6, 2021, and close after the Tailgate event at 7 p.m.

What is the refund policy?

Refunds will be dealt with on a case by case basis minus the processing fees. Refund requests will be determined by the Reunion Committee.

What are the requirements for accessing the Yard?

Requirements for access to the Yard may be found at https://www.usna.edu/Visit/index.php.

Can I park in The Yard?

Parking in the Yard is extremely limited. Visit https://www.annapolisparking.com/destinations/us-naval-academy/ for parking options in Annapolis.

What if I'm married to a classmate, do we both have to pay the Classmate registration fee?

Yes. Since we base the registration fee on the number of classmates attending the reunion to cover the fixed costs for the entire weekend, we ask that all classmates pay their fee. Each classmate will need to create their own registration. This ensures each classmate has a proper name tag. Thank you!

How can families of fallen classmates register to attend the reunion?

The USNA Class of 1980 would be honored to have families of our fallen classmates join us for the weekend. Please contact the Stefanie Goebel (stefanie.goebel@gmail.com) for more details.

Can I park at the stadium for the Tailgate/Watch Party?

Parking will be available for a fee of $10 per car. Enter at Gate 5 beginning at 11:00 a.m. and exit by 7:30 p.m.

Are funds available for classmates experiencing hardships?

Yes! Classmates experiencing financial hardships (due to COVID or other issues) who would like to attend the weekend, please contact your company representative. Anonymous classmates have put forward funds to support classmates in need.

Will transportation be provided in the Yard or to the Saturday Tailgate?

No.

Will mobility assistance be available?

Individuals needing assistance with mobility devices (wheelchairs, scooters, etc.) can contact Annapolis Healthcare Supplies, (410) 295-7300, http://www.annapolishealthcare.com/

How will COVID affect our reunion?

We don’t anticipate any issues with COVID, but will follow the COVID guidelines in effect in Anne Arundel County https://aahealth.org/coronavirus-covid-19-guidance/ and the Superintendent’s guidance https://www.usna.edu/COVID-19/index.php.
