Our 45th Reunion - June 1-4 2017






It's that time again! Our 45th Reunion (yipes!) will be held from June 1 to June 4, 2017. It hardly seems possible, but nearly 45 years have passed since we graduated. Clearly Princeton has changed dramatically in those 45 years, but, all in all, it is very much the same place that we remember and cherish. We hope that all of you will take the opportunity to return for our 45th and to reconnect with Classmates, roommates, teammates and the University itself.


We hope to conduct most of our 45th registration online. All the info you need should be on the registration page. The current list of registrants can be found here. If you have a problem, please contact Doug Harrison (703-795-5860 or haphar@gmail.com)





Tiger Camp

The Tiger Camp information, registration, and waiver form are posted on the Office of Alumni Affairs Reunions 2017 site:
Please share this information with your classmates and let them know that the early bird registration ends March 31.


Golf Carts

The online personal alumni golf cart reservation information and form is now available for your classmates.
 

Click here: Golf Cart Order Form

As a reminder, personal golf cart rentals for Reunions are only available for alumni with mobility issues. A golf cart can be rented for the three days of Reunions (Thursday 12:00 pmSunday 10:00 am) or for use in the P-rade only. An alumnus/a can only order one cart and we suggest that orders are placed by the end of April as we have a limited number of carts reserved with our vendor.
 
Please spread the news about Reunions Rover -- a transport service for alumni and guests. Student driven golf carts make continuous intra-campus loops with stops at headquarters sites, parking lots and program locations throughout Reunions weekend. This is the third year offering the Rover with plans to increase the number of Rover carts given the high marks we have received in post Reunions survey results. We hope the Rover service will cut down on the number of personal golf carts and shuttle buses on the campus pathways and roads.  
 

If a classmates does not have access to a computer, orders can be placed over the phone with Courtney Massari, Venue Manager, Venue Services, University Services at (609) 258-0286.

Battle of the Alumni Bands

Communication regarding a Battle of the Alumni Bands to take place at the Reunion can be viewed below. '72 band members are encouraged to participate in the fun.  

Attention all Princeton 2017 Reunions Chairs:

Reunions 2017 will be the tenth year we offer a free Friday afternoon outdoor concert, "Battle of the Alumni Bands”, featuring alumni from all the major reunion classes.  This concert is dedicated to those alumni who formed extra-curricular "party bands” while they were undergraduates at Princeton.  This letter is a call to all classmates to ask them to re-assemble their old bands and have them perform a few songs in a 15-20 minute set….. and to ask you to communicate the details of this concert to your class.

On Friday afternoon, June 2nd, 2017, between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., we will hold a concert that will feature bands from every major reunion class (if available) in a tent on the lawn in front of the U-store at the foot of Blair Arch.  We’ll kick the concert off with a current undergraduate band and then feature a different alumni band every twenty minutes.  Imagine a rock and roll band from the Class of 1967 followed by a jazz group from 1957 followed by a hip-hop group from 2012! Some will be great, some good and some a little rusty… that’s part of the fun!

While many alumni are still playing and/or singing, some of our old classmates have stopped playing or have passed away. We will have a professional piano, bass, guitar and drummer standing by to fill in for any missing band members. We only require that someone in the band must have played for parties on campus or Prospect Street when they were undergraduates and that one or more living alumnus, in his reunion uniform, will perform in the concert.  Only one band per reunion class, unless we have some extra room.

Don’t worry about equipment.  We will have a complete sound system, music stands, and a back-line of amplifiers necessary for any configuration. We’ll even have instruments available; drum-set, piano, guitars and an electric bass.

We hope to have a representative band from each major reunion class from the 5th through the 75th reunion.  We will promote the concert and start times for each band so that your fellow classmates can attend the concert and cheer your class’ band on.

I am writing you, the Reunion Chairs, to ask that you forward the attached letter to your classmates, so that we can start to gauge the level of participation in this concert. It is important that this request go out to your class as soon as possible (only you can send a mass email to your class) so that we can begin the planning process.  I have attached a short version of this letter that you can use as an email or part of a class-wide mailing. Please get this out to your class at your first opportunity.

There will be no cost to your class. I am funding this concert along with the Alumni Association. It’s important that we have broad participation from all classes to ensure a diverse program. We had a blast last year and hope to make this an even better concert in 2017.

If you, or anyone on your Committee remembers a band leader from your undergraduate years, please send me his/her name and I’ll reach out to them directly.

If you need additional information or would like to discuss the details, please give me a call.
