Welcome to the USNA Class of 1966 55th+1 Reunion

Welcome to the Class of 1966 55th +1 Reunion. We're looking forward to seeing you. Our planning continues for a great weekend September 1-4, 2022.

This registration platform provides details on all the events and includes a list of initial FAQs. If you have additional questions, please email Chuck Grutzius at elexsys.cg@att.net. We’ll continue to expand the FAQs as needed. You can also review information on our class website: usna66.org.

Classmates are encouraged to review the events and register early. Please start by setting up your Login account and identifying any others who may be accompanying you on this registration platform.

Please note that, as in the past, the Class prices events separately. There are two fees:

  • Processing (to cover the cost of the registration platform and credit card fees) and
  • Administrative (bundled pricing for buses, Class Directory, Gift Bag, printing of menus/programs/etc., postage, food for Thursday night reception, and over-budget insurance).

Please note that prices are higher than the 50th reunion due to 6 years of inflation, supply chain problems, and labor shortages. However, the Reunion Committee has worked diligently to offer the best possible experience to the Class of 1966 and guests for a reasonable cost.

The Committee looks forward to welcoming you to a spectacular weekend, a winning game (hopefully), and a treasured memory.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

I see two different registration fees, what are they?

  1. Processing Fee: This is the fee we pay to Barnet & Associates to develop and operate the registration website. All registration-related transactions are covered under the processing fee which is charged per Classmate. This fee also includes credit card transaction fees.
  2. Administrative Fee: The Administrative (Admin) Fee is $180 and is required for Classmates only, i.e., spouses/guests of Classmates will not be charged an additional Admin Fee. This fee bundles the underlying costs in hosting the event for all participants (Classmates, spouses, widows, guests) and includes:
    • Buses
    • Class Directory
    • Gift Bags
    • Printing Services (flyers, menus, programs, signage, etc.)
    • Welcome reception food
    • Postage
    • Over Budget insurance

Can I pay with cash or check?

No, cash and check are not accepted, credit cards only.

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

Classmates are encouraged to make every effort to attend the Reunion. Registrations are welcome up to Wednesday, August 31. There is no late registration fee. However, because some events will sell out, you are encouraged to register as early as possible. Please note, you have the option to make payments over time.

What is the refund policy?

Registration monies less applicable fees will be refunded to Classmates. Refund requests are to be submitted to the Class Treasurer at elexsys.cg@att.net.

Do I need to buy football tickets?

All classmates, spouses and guests will need to purchase a football ticket to gain access to the Stadium. The Class of 1966 Tailgate will be hosted in the N* Room inside the Stadium. General Admission ("Hill") seating offers a fun and affordable way to enjoy the game and would enable Classmates and guests who have paid for the Class Tailgate to enter the N* Room.

What identification do I need to gain access to the Yard?

Anyone 18 years of age or older must present a valid, unexpired original REAL ID Act compliant U.S. government photo ID card (e.g., state issued driver's license or identification card); or an original, unexpired passport to enter USNA grounds.

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.

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.
