Class of ’72 45 Year Reunion

November 17-19, 2017
College Station, TX

 

Printable Registration Form.

 

Howdy, Ags!


Here's the registration information you have waiting for so patiently. The planning has covered the possibilities for any of the kickoff times, which we may know by two weeks out, but that will not affect your registration, so do it now! If you know of any Classmates that don't get notices from The Association please share this with them. And if you know of any that are typically slow to respond, help encourage them to get to it. We have to have head counts for each activity so sooner trumps later. I look forward to a record crowd this year. Gig'em.

George Hester

Howdy, Class of '72! 

Come, come, come!

It is hard to believe that it is it is time for our 45 Year Class Reunion. It will be held in College Station, November 17-19  As we did for out 40 Year Reunion, we will be meeting on an away game weekend. It worked so well we decided to do it again. We will be watched the Ags destroying Ole Miss. Whoop! We will also have more time to visit.

On Friday you can choose golf or a tour of Kyle and Olsen Field. That night we will have our reception and dinner at the Hilton in the Oakwood Ballroom. Saturday morning will be breakfast and class business meeting at the Student Rec Center. Watching the game will take place in the Presidential Suite at Kyle Field. Because we don’t know the time of kickoff we are leaving Saturday open to visit and walk the campus to see all the changes. 

If I didn’t say it before, Come, Come, Come. We want to have the largest crowd ever.

Gig’em,

Roland Hurst

PS
IMPORTANT: CHECK this website one week prior for the exact times of all the activities!
