Just curious. We received invitation for All Academy Ball to be held in Lubbock, TX....Son is USNA Candidate. (No LOA, Triple Q'd, nom should be in by Christmas...)

So, what are these functions like? Do the mids/cadets enjoy them? I was told lots of parent groups across the country host such a ball over the holidays.

We cannot attend as we will be out of town. Hopefully we will be able to attend in the future!

Merry Christmas, everyone! :shake:
I'm not sure how the lubbock ball works, but when I was a mid I went to the Philadelphia Academies Ball twice. It was a fun time, dinner, dancing, and gift baskets for all the mids/cadets in attendance. Most mids/cadets come with their families and a date. I had a great time, and I would definitely recommend going at least once.
