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 40th Reunion is $100 for classmates and $15 for guests. This registration fee covers the administrative cost associated with planning the reunion, but not limited to, ancillary tailgate costs, programs, usage fees, signage, printing, and nametags. Help the reunion committee by making plans early. After 08/15/2021 the registration fee will be $150 for classmates and $25 for guests.

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.

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 08/15/2021. After that date the registration fee will be $150 for classmates and $25 for guests. Help out the reunion committee by making plans early! You have the option to make payments over time, the earlier the better!

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.

Do I need a passport to gain access to the Yard?

In short, Yes!

Residents from a state/territory that is compliant with REAL ID or non-compliant with REAL ID, but has received an extension may continue to use their current state/territory-issued driver’s licenses and identification cards, regardless of whether the card is REAL ID compliant or not, for accessing federal facilities, including military bases.  This is what we call 'state-based' enforcement.  Only the state that issued the resident’s license/ID must be either compliant or have been granted an extension in order for that resident to use that license/ID for accessing Federal facilities.  The license/ID itself does not have to be REAL ID compliant until 'card-based' enforcement begins on October 1, 2020.

Starting February 5, 2018, residents of American Samoa, which is not compliant with REAL ID and was not granted an extension, will no longer be allowed to use their American Samoa-issued driver’s licenses and identification cards to access federal facilities (including military bases), enter nuclear power plants or board commercial aircraft.  As noted above, this is what we call 'state-based' enforcement.  American Samoa residents will need to show an alternative form of identification that is acceptable to the facility.  Visitors should contact the facility to determine what, if any, identification is needed for access.

Where alternative forms of ID are required, typically, a government issued photo ID, such as a Passport or Passport Card, will suffice.

Where do I buy game tickets in the class block?

Purchase tickets in the Class Block with the Promo Code: 1981
Promo Code Link: Click Here

Can I park in The Yard?

Getting your vehicle onto, and parking in The Yard is very, very challenging at this point given the various construction projects underway.  We do NOT recommend planning on parking in The Yard.  Most access will be via foot at Gate 1.

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 1981 would be honored to have families of our fallen classmates join us for the weekend. Please contact the Reunion Committee for more details.

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?

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