2022 Sul Ross Group Reunion

March 2-4, 2022
College Station, TX

Printable Registration Form

Dear Sul Ross Group (SRG) Members,

Howdy! We, the Sul Ross Group Board of Directors hope that all of you and yours had a great, safe and healthy Christmas and New Year!

In November 2021, we sent you the Sul Ross Group Reunion planning information and asked that you consider the hotel options and begin registration. Now, Josh Reinbolt ’99 and his team have prepared and included the reunion details and activities’ information so you can register. It is all included on this webpage or in the packet mailed to you, so I shall not amplify that here since we did that for you in November.

Assuredly however, we are looking forward to March 2-4 and seeing you all again here in Aggieland! We believe we have an enjoyable and informative program planned for you as we start the “final countdown.” The pandemic has obviously affected us over the past year and a half, and it is still not over. The latest variant (Omicron) has turned out to be infectious but less severe and shorter in duration. The University has set the standards for student return this month and we are following their lead in our planning. So, we have concluded that we can proceed safely and successfully!


Again, we ask that you please register. Thank you for your support as always. We wish you safe travels and look forward to seeing you soon!

Sincerely,

Joe Ashy ’62 
President Sul Ross Group
