    What time do plebes have to report back on Sunday of Plebe Parent Weekend? We are trying to book flights for that weekend, and it would be nice to know what time to make our return trip home.

    If memory serves (always a bad assumption these days) report time is 1800.

    Thanks! That was what I thought I read somewhere. Just wanted to confirm.

    Reporting time was 18:00 on Sunday last year and you will hear the Christmas music. Now a days some Plebes go home for Thanksgiving, but some time ago, Plebes were not allowed to go home until Christmas after PPW. That is why you hear the Christmas music when you drop your Mids off at Bancroft.

    As is often stated on here, what the schedule was last year, 2 yrs ago....etc. may NOT be the same as what it is this year. I would be careful in ASSUMING it will be exactly the same schedule as some prior year.

    Does anyone know if the plebes will be released on Thursday or Friday for liberty? Are their any activities on Thursday? Also, when releases, are they released for the entire weekend or do they report back each night?

    PPW liberty times (historical)

    There is no way to tell ahead of time because the PPW 2013 schedule is not yet released. However, historically:

    • No liberty or parental contact on Thursday. Parents can, and do, fly in on Thursday and take a tour of the Yard. Thursday is a regular training day for you.
    • On Friday, you can meet your parent(s) after dismissal from noon meal formation (~1215) at designated places along Stribling Walk. You'll get instructions; it's usually alphabetical. You typically have liberty until 2200 Friday with an accountability formation. (In the past, 'rents would go to Friday PEP at 0530, but I believe this practice has been either discouraged or banned recently - recent grads can chime in?)
    • Saturday liberty after parade, which means ~1000-~1200 again. Liberty until 2200 Saturday. Another accountability formation at 2200.
    • Sunday liberty 0800-1800, which is evening meal formation.

    There are always chances that times will change. I would not count on overnight liberty during PPW, in no small part because, to my knowledge, it has never happened.

    Just remember the traffic getting back to Gate One is brutal on Sunday of PPW. Have seen many Plebes bailing out of cars stuck in traffic and running to make cutoff time. We were in a rental so just walked over. I think 2011 was the last year for parents at PEP on Friday?

    As a general observation from many years ago, the roads to and from the ocean beaches tend to be clobbered with traffic returning from the weekend fishing, swimming, etc, so be sure to add time for that traffic plus the several hundred PPW vehicles. Getting to your airport may take longer than you might think.
