Greetings again ’85,

Greetings from La Jolla, CA. Sherry and I are enjoying a mini-vacation prior to heading down to the Gas Lamp District for the Notre Dame weekend events starting this Thursday. For those of you going, I have reached out to you as a group with all the final details, here is a link if anyone needs a reminder of the events:

An ’85 Classmate does have 4 tickets in the ’85 seating area for $85 each. Please text or email me today if you are interested or he will look to sell them locally if no ’85 Classmate wants them. I can stlll squeeze you into all the class events and the motor coach if you did buy 2 or 4 of his tickets and would need to know right away. (Great opportunity if you can make a last minute trip for the game and parties). For everyone going, safe travels and I will see you soon.

Next, we had a great turnout for the Houston game/Homecoming this past Saturday, it was good to see many of you there and it was great tailgate. The Mids played hard and fell short, we all hope their improvements will keep coming as the ultimate preparation for the Army game on Dec. 8th in Philadelphia. The final home game is Saturday November 17th against Tulsa at 1530 and we will have the Class Grill fired up cooking brats, burgers and other meats; we’ll and have a sign up in a few weeks for needed sides and other items and look for that announcement. (We will provide the meats and grill masters).

Now, Army/Navy 2018 news: On Friday evening December 7th we will have our annual Army/Navy Class Cocktail party; this year is at the Misconduct Tavern (right?) located at: 1511 Locust St. in downtown Philly from 1730-2000. We have a private room reserved and all food and drinks will be Ala Carte that night from the bar menu for each party (If you have a Black “N” sweater that fits, bring it!). On Saturday, we will be indoor tailgating at Tollman Joe’s Bar located at: 26 E. Oregon Ave, Philly. from 1100-1400 that day (kickoff is at 1500). I am working with them to have a fixed menu served buffet style and drink discounts; I’m looking at $40 per head cost for food and space rental/shuttle service and will collect that via Paypal or Venmo in a few weeks. This is a Great Bar near the stadium ideal for an indoor tailgate (Popular Eagle’s pre-game spot). There will also be a shuttle from their bar to the stadium and free parking available for those driving in. More details will be coming as I finalize this event, mark your calendar and make plans, sign ups starting soon for Army/Navy weekend events, so stay tuned and sign up if you can make it.

All right, that is about all the news I have. For those of you not making the game this weekend, we know you will be looking for ’85 in the stands. Rest assured, as we always do, WE WILL WIN THE PARTY!! Get ready for Army/Navy and have a great Halloween. As always, I am available for any questions, comments or suggestions: or c: 502-432-6185. Go Navy and BEAT THE IRISH and ARMY!!   Bob Smith ’85
