Crab Cake Feast

The Crab Cake feast will be held in the N* Room. Plan to arrive at 6pm if you want to check-in ... or if you'd like to grab a beer or wine and cheese before the buffet dinner starts at 7pm. You will need to pay for your parking. Enter the stadium via parking Gate 5 off Taylor Ave and tell the parking attendant you are attending the "Class of 1979 Crab Cake Feast". There is NO OVERNIGHT parking on Friday night in support of the football game Saturday.

Photo Op Photographers will be on hand for Company Photos. As a company, you will be responsible for gathering everyone together. No announcements will be made.

The cost of the Crab Cake feast and beer/wine/cheese reception is $125 for adults, which is 25% more than on the 40th ... yep, no surprise, food costs have gone up. If you sign up after July 15th the cost increases to $150 for adults. Minors (age 8-20) are $35 each and 7 and under are free. This is the same as the 40th.

Tailgate at the Stadium - End Zone Tent Area

The Tailgater is often the highlight of the weekend. A great stadium, a promising Navy team, great food and drink, old friends - now we're talking! GO NAVY! BEAT Memphis! Don't forget your Name Tag, lanyard and electronic football tickets! You must have a ticket to enter the tailgater. Click here to purchase tickets in the class block: https://fevo.me/navy1979. Please note that you will not be allowed to leave the Stadium to put your Goodie Bag in your car and re enter prior to halftime ... so check-in on Thursday or Friday to make it easier. Also, a NEW Clear Bag Policy is in effect. See all details of permitted and prohibited items in the FAQ.

No unpaid guests are permitted to enter the Tailgate area. With the large paid attendance (850+), please plan to meet them in another location. The cost of the Tailgate is $125 for adults, which is 25% more than on the 40th ... due to food costs and tent rental. If you sign up after July 15th the cost increases to $150 for adults. Minors (age 8-20) are $35 each and 7 and under are free. This is the same as the 40th.

Gates open for the tailgater at 1:30pm. Please enter the stadium at whichever gate you prefer and proceed to the Tailgate Tent, which will be in the North East Corner (towards the water tower). Once you enter your name tag will be reviewed to confirm you paid for the tailgate and you will be able to pick up your Football mum(s) if you purchased them. Hot food will be served on the lower level of the tailgate tent from 1:30pm through halftime. Desserts will be offered starting during the 2nd Quarter. There will be a bar on the upper level and lower level. Last Call will be 15 minutes after "Navy Blue & Gold". Outdoor seating in the Northeast End Zone section is available to those who purchased seats. Please note the parking restrictions in the FAQs.
