Football Tickets Update


As a class we are in the process of securing a block of 600 tickets for the Football Game Army v. UTEP on Sat 30 Sept, the weekend of our reunion.

As the block is not yet confirmed, I am not yet providing information on how to purchase tickets in the Class of 1987 reunion block. Once I have received confirmation from both the Army Ticket Office and the AOG, we will provide that information.

Thank you for your patience with this process as nothing seems to be repeatable from previous reunions.

Best and Get Outside,

30th Reunion–Thayer Hotel Reservations Now Available

Happy New Year and the 30th Anniversary of our graduation!

After some long and painful negotiations with The Thayer Hotel, Derek Abbott has negotiated and secured a room block of 80 rooms for each of three nights. That is a total of 240 room nights. Despite our best effort, we secured far less rooms than we wanted.

The block is reserved for “Class of 1987”. The phone number is 845-446-4731.

The Thayer requires advance reservations with a two night minimum stay and two night deposit. The deposit is charge immediately at the time of booking.

Reservations cancelled within seven days of arrival date will be subject to one night room charge.   (more…)

30th Reunion Update – Hotel Reservations


With many counting the days until the A-N 87 Tailgate Blowout, I want to provide a reunion update regarding hotel reservations and room blocks.

BLUF: The room block at The Thayer Hotel has not be finalized and released to the class.

Our 30th Reunion is Sept 28-1 Oct 2017. When we selected that weekend in Feb 2016 we were the only class scheduled to have a reunion. Since that time the football schedule changed and the Class of 1972 also requested this weekend. (more…)

30th Reunion Dates


As many of us turned 50 in 2016, we have another milestone to mark, our 30th West Point reunion.

Please mark you calendars for our reunion weekend of 28 Sept-1 Oct 2017. This is the weekend of the Army v. Duke Football Game. At this point I do not know what other Army Teams will be battling on the fields of Friendly Strife. The reunion will take place at West Point.

If you are willing to contribute your time and expertise in pulling together this weekend, please email me.

Our Country We Strengthen,
