Army and Navy Academy will host its annual Alumni Weekend May 18-21, 2017 and there is an exciting line-up of events to come!
This special weekend begins with the Elite Athletic Hall of Fame Dinner at Duffield Sports Center. This Hall of Fame was created to recognize outstanding Athletic Performance of Army and Navy Academy Alumni. Inclusion in the Athletic Hall of Fame is the highest honor that Army and Navy Academy confers upon those who have excelled as players or coaches throughout the years.
On Friday, the alums and their guests can participate in the Jon Higgins Golf Tournament at El Camino Country Club in Oceanside. It will definitely be a beautiful day out on the green and afterwards, they can enjoy the Spring Performance of Army and Navy Academy’s Atkinson Warrior Band. To culminate Friday, everyone can head over to Friday Night Bites where alumni and their guests are welcome to mingle over delicious drinks and hors d’oeurves.
Saturday is jam-packed with a Morning Colors Ceremony where alumni and guests can see how the Cadets start each school day by paying respect to the American Flag, followed by an Alumni Association meeting. After the meeting, there will be special Warrior Pride Luncheon where the 2017 Golden “A” Recipient will be announced, special guest, Alex Mui, will be speaking on his book Army & Navy Academy: History of the West Point of the West. Lunch is concluded with Alumni and current ANA Seniors participating in the tradition of the “Long Grey Line,” which is the Senior’s rite of passage to becoming future Alumni of ANA.
The rest of the weekend is filled with reunion class photos, an Alumni/Cadet softball game, Happy Hour, a beach bonfire and BBQ, Military Review and Awards Ceremony, and more!
