Alumni Summer Picnic following the Welcome Aboard Event
We are starting a new tradition!


Each year the Parents Club hosts a Welcome Aboard event for the incoming class and their families. This year, the Chapter will follow it with an alumni-wide Texas-sized Picnic in which our entire USNA community is invited!

We are still working out the details, but expect some fun, great food, cold beer and a bounce house! Here is what we have planned so far:

Date and Time:
Saturday, June 16
10:00 - Noon: Welcome Aboard hosted by the Parents Club
Noon - 2:00pm:  Summer Picnic

Southwest Airlines HQ!
Thank you to James Hollingsworth, '94, current parent and parent of a candidate, for making this wonderful location available to us! James is a pilot for SWA. Thank You, James!

We have an amazing caterer for you! Here is the menu:

Barbeque Chicken - Light and dark meat chicken breast, thighs and drumsticks marinated in a Cornell sauce, slathered with a smoky barbecue sauce and grilled over charcoal flames.
Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork - Dry rubbed, slow smoked pork pulled and glazed with homemade Dr. Pepper barbeque sauce accompanied by soft rolls.
Baked Beans - Slow simmered and finished with brown sugar, spices and a hint of mustard.
Jalapeno Corn Salad - Sweet summer corn blended with jalapeno peppers, red Bermuda onion, green spring onion, cilantro, red peppers, cumin, chili and ripe Roma tomatoes.
Potato Chips
Watermelon Slices
Apple-Blueberry Crisp - Granny smith apples blended with blueberries, sugar, butter and a touch of cinnamon baked with an oatmeal streusel top

We will also have iced tea and water.

Feel free to bring a few things to fill out the snacks and beverages such as bags of chips, cookies, more fruit, and cokes. Also, you are welcome to bring a cooler with ANY food or beverages you wish, including beer.

Bounce House - we will have a full bounce house for the little ones!
Basketball - bring your basketball and shoot some hoops!
