Happy December Class of ’85,

Who too can say: “WTF…. Where did Fall go and I cannot believe it’s December already?” Yep, that’s me too! That all being said, as we catch our breath from hanging Christmas decorations and attending endless Christmas parties; let’s first remember those who gave us their ultimate sacrifice for our freedom and especially those from the USNA and our ’85 Family. Next, it’s Army week!! We know what that means: Eat, sleep and breath beating those Black Knights on Hudson next Saturday and Lincoln Financial. As part of that, here is the info I posted in a previous email:

With Navy’s home season complete, I have now turned my focus to the Army/Navy weekend in Philadelphia. I am once again pleased to announce we will have both a Friday evening event and Saturday pre-game tailgate. On Friday, we will meet up at the Misconduct Tavern at 1511 Locust Street in Philadelphia from 1730-2000. Here is a link for the Misconduct Tavern: http://www.misconducttavern.com/#about This event is cash bar and you can order drinks and food off the menu from the staff who will be accommodating us in a private room at the Pub. I have been to this Pub and the food and staff are great! On Saturday, we will be having an Indoor tailgate at Tollman Joe’s located at: 26 E Oregon Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19148 and their website it: https://www.tollmanjoes.com/location/toll-man-joes-e-oregon-ave/ Here are the details and menu for this event:

Dec. 8th   11am-2pm
$50 per person fee paid to Bob Smith (See Below)

  • Cheese Burger Sliders
    Cheese Steak Spring Rolls
    Lobster Bisque
    Old Bay Fries
    Caesar Salad
  • Bottomless Mimosas (Included)
    $3 Domestic Beers
    $4 Wines
    *** They have a FREE shuttle to the game for those who are taking an Uber to this event or if you want to leave your car for FREE and take the shuttle.***

I will be collecting the event fee of $50 in the following manner: Paypal and Venmo at: md11driver85@gmail.com or you can hand me check or cash at either event for your payment (contact me because I need a headcount for both nights).
PLEASE sign up by the deadline of December 3rd at 2300 EST. There is no fee for the Friday event, but if you could please email or text me to let me know you are coming, that info will be very helpful: c: 502-432-6185 or robertsmith5@att.net. For paypal, PLEASE send your payment indicating it is for “Friends and Family”, otherwise, they take a fee and I lose money that paypal takes. Looking forward to seeing everyone soon at the Army/Navy weekend as Navy seems to be peaking for the right game. I will be putting out information, soon along with early sign ups for the Big 2020 Ireland Trip for Navy vs. Notre Dame. We will once again work with Tenon Tours like we did in 2012 and we are putting together some amazing travel packages for that event. More to follow, for now BEAT ARMY!!

See many of you next weekend and we are dedicating Friday night to those in our Class who specialized in “Misconduct” by proudly displaying a Black “N” Sweater. If you own one, bring it, if it happens to fit (unlikely), wear it. See you Friday and/or Saturday and PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, sign up NOW if you are coming. Sign ups have been light so far and I need a head count please.

Happy Holidays,

Bob Smith ’85
