What is the processing fee?

The processing fee covers the credit card transaction fees.

When does registration close? What are the late registration fees?

The cut-off date for standard registration is August 31, 2021. After that date the tailgate price will increase to $100. Help out the reunion committee by making plans early! You have the option to make payments over time, the earlier the better!

Can I park in The Yard?

Vehicle access to the Yard is allowed for DoD ID holders only and parking in the Yard is extremely limited and challenging. Allow sufficient time for finding downtown paid parking and/or use public/paid transportation. Plan on entering the Yard via foot at Gate 1.

What if I'm married to an '86 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!

What does the Registration Fee Cover?

This registration fee covers administrative costs associated with planning the reunion such as printing, signage, name tags, etc. Note: Prices increase after August 31, 2021 so make plans early!

Can I park at the Stadium during Game Day?

In short, No. Parking will NOT be sold for the stadium (Blue and Gold) lots on game day. A season parking pass can be purchased by season ticket holders. Satellite parking is available at the Harry S Truman Park and Ride, located on Harry S Truman Parkway just off Riva Road. Shuttle service begins five (5) hours prior to the start of the game. Service continues throughout all games, ending approximately two (2) hours after each game's completion. The shuttle runs approximately every 20 minutes, and drops off and picks up at the Navy Ticket Office at the Class of 1953 Pavilion. Handicapped Parking: For access to handicapped parking, you must have a season parking pass. In order to obtain handicapped parking, one must purchase a season parking pass as well as have a state issued handicapped parking placard or license plate. Please see the NAAA Football Parking & Fan Guide at www.navysports.com.

Are funds available for classmates experiencing hardships?
