    Sponsor Families

    The Plebes usually meet their sponsor families the Sunday before PPW. At least that's what happened last year. My son had his last phone call home that Monday and told me his sponsor family was awesome. His sponsor mom then called me on Tuesday to introduce herself to me. We all met for dinner the Saturday of PPW. And my son was so right--he has an awesome sponsor family.

    Somewhere on a schedule I saw that they meet the families on August 8th this year. We know who ours is because because a friend who has a Youngster there asked her son's sponsor to sponsor our son too. People who already know are probably in similar situations. I don't think that there has been any official notification yet.

    Sponsor Social with Plebes: Sunday 8 Aug

    We will go to the Sponsor Social on Sunday the 8th at Alumni Hall, check in, and get our list of plebes. Plebes are all sitting in company, and we cruise from guidon to guidon, asking the detailer to send "W.T. Door" right on down. It's rather like a blind date. We take our new flock in tow, find a quiet place to sit, and chat. We bring along a one-page gouge sheet on us to fold up and stick in a pocket so they don't have to remember names and contact info. We get some info from them. There are usually cookies and punch. I think it's about 2 hours. This year, we know one of our plebes in advance, because a more senior sponsor daughter asked us to ask for her. We have also sponsored 3 sisters from the same family, all pre-requested. That may be why some families know already.
