Shout Outs

Frequently Asked Questions

Please review our Frequently Asked Questions to have an enjoyable event.

How much is the registration fee?

The registration fee for the 40th Reunion is $7.25 for classmates and $4.25 for guests. This registration fee covers the administrative cost associated with planning the reunion. After August 30, 2020, the registration fee for classmates will increase to $150.

Can I pay with cash or check?

No, to keep efficient processes, we are only accepting credit card transactions - cash and check are not accepted.

What is the processing fee?

The processing fee covers the credit card transaction fees.

When does registration close? What are the late registration fees?

The cut-off date for registration is August 30, 2020. After that date, late fees will apply and the classmate registration fee will increase to $150. Help out the reunion committee by making plans early! You have the option to make payments over time, the earlier the better!

What is the refund policy?

Refunds will be dealt with on a case by case basis minus the processing fees. Refund requests will be determined by the Reunion Committee.

Do I need a passport to gain access to the Yard?

In short, Yes!

Residents from a state/territory that is compliant with REAL ID or non-compliant with REAL ID, but has received an extension may continue to use their current state/territory-issued driver’s licenses and identification cards, regardless of whether the card is REAL ID compliant or not, for accessing federal facilities, including military bases.  This is what we call 'state-based' enforcement.  Only the state that issued the resident’s license/ID must be either compliant or have been granted an extension in order for that resident to use that license/ID for accessing Federal facilities.  The license/ID itself does not have to be REAL ID compliant until 'card-based' enforcement begins on October 1, 2020.

Starting February 5, 2018, residents of American Samoa, which is not compliant with REAL ID and was not granted an extension, will no longer be allowed to use their American Samoa-issued driver’s licenses and identification cards to access federal facilities (including military bases), enter nuclear power plants or board commercial aircraft.  As noted above, this is what we call 'state-based' enforcement.  American Samoa residents will need to show an alternative form of identification that is acceptable to the facility.  Visitors should contact the facility to determine what, if any, identification is needed for access.

Where alternative forms of ID are required, typically, a government issued photo ID, such as a Passport or Passport Card, will suffice.

Where do I buy game tickets in the 1980 class block?

Purchase tickets in the 1980 Class Block with the Promo Code: 1980
Promo Code Link: Click Here

Can I park in The Yard?

Getting your vehicle onto, and parking in The Yard is very, very challenging at this point given the various construction projects underway.  We do NOT recommend planning on parking in The Yard.  Most access will be via foot at Gate 1.

What if I'm married to an '80 classmate, do we both have to pay the Classmate registration fee?

Yes. Since we base the registration fee on the number of classmates attending the reunion to cover the fixed costs for the entire weekend, we ask that all classmates pay their fee. Each classmate will need to create their own registration. This ensures each classmate has a proper name tag. Thank you!
