Dear Alumni and Friends,
We have postponed the opening date for registration until August 15, 2020 due to ongoing concerns about COVID-19. We are planning on hosting the banquet, but University restrictions on large gatherings may prevent us from proceeding with our usual events. Please watch this site for updates! Please continue supporting our scholarships and alumni fund (#32710)! Cadets are still incurring expenses for school, and we will continue to award scholarships this fall. As Winston said, “Keep calm and carry on.”
The University of Oklahoma Army ROTC Sooner Battalion will host its twelfth annual Alumni and Friends Banquet at the University of Oklahoma Memorial Union Ballroom on Friday, November 13, 2020, from 5:30 P.M. to 10 P.M.
This event allows all graduates and friends of our program to reunite with one another, meet our cadets and their families, and catch up on old times.
We also want to encourage all of our alumni and friends to meet and speak with as many cadets as possible. The cadets are always anxious to hear our “war” stories and how ROTC benefited us.
We will be awarding 24 different scholarships and awards worth over $33,000 to our outstanding cadets. The OU Alumni Association recently named our group number ONE out of over 100 OU alumni clubs based on our commitment to scholarships for current students and the number of other events we sponsor.
To our alumni: thank you for making this possible!
We wish to invite the proud parents, family members, and friends of our cadets so that they can see first-hand how proud we are too. We hope to surpass our excellent attendance of around 300 attendees for the past 4 years.
The cost of the banquet will be $50 for Alumni and guests. We are expecting another large turnout this year, so please register early on our website while space is available.
Attendees will be required to register electronically and pay by check or credit card. Attendees must also provide information on choice of meal (beef, chicken or veggie) and any dietary considerations.
Current cadets should register themselves and their spouses or dates with their primary Military Science instructor. Costs for cadets will be paid by the Alumni Association. Cadet spouses and dates will receive a special rate of $25. Donations are welcome and encouraged.
Free parking will be provided in the parking lot to the east of the Field House (2 handicapped, 150 regular). Additional parking will be available in the Memorial Union parking garage (171 parking spots) for $2.00 per hour.
To pay by credit card, click on the PayPal link then enter your credit card information beneath the PayPal login link. A PayPal account is not required and no PayPal password is needed. Please only register once and before November 9, 2020.
Hats, lapel pins, and coins will be available!
We request minimum donations of $5 for the lapel pin, $10 for the challenge coin, $15 for the logo hat, or $25 for the complete set. These will be available at the banquet while supplies last.
For questions concerning this event, please contact our President, Mr. Keith Huffman, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
