    Hey, thanks for the schedule! How did you get it? Anyway, I'm hoping and praying that the powers that be will allow our responsible sons and daughters to spend the night with us on Saturday and arrive in time for muster, but I've been told it probably won't happen. Maybe we can have them till 11 pm? 12pm? on Saturday instead? Sure can't wait to hear the Beat Retreat and the performance at Battery Park!

    Disclaimer: This info came from my 3/C DD in Band Co. and was what she had heard a couple of weeks ago. Things change and someone could be mistaken.

    There is chance that Plebes will have lib until 0600 Sunday morning. Don't hold your breath for that. I'm sure final info will be announced at Beat Retreat and/or the football game.

    The get-together in Yocum after Beat Retreat was very nice last year. It is a chance to meet and chat with your plebe's company officers, team leaders, etc. It's informal and relaxed and the plebes get to have soda and cookies. :thumb: IMHO, don't skip this.

    Have a great time at Parents Weekend! And
    Go KP! Beat Coast Guard!

    Late breaking news

    All Band Co will be dismissed after the football game Saturday. They have to be on the bus at 6:45 AM Sunday morning to go to Battery Park. After the performance - if they have notified the powers that be by email today or tomorrow they may go off on their own. There will bbe a company muster at 2100 Sunday night.
