    Due to the possible weather effects from hurricane Florence, has anyone heard if the game will be played as scheduled or be rescheduled?

    I am buddies with a few folks on the Navy football staff and athletic offices and so far they haven’t announced any. I think they are watching and trying to figure it out. From my understanding downtown is already pretty flooded. I am guessing they will make a call soon.

    I agree it doesn’t look good either. My guess is athletic directors and coaches are looking st options like if delaying the game until Sunday might help, alternate sites, alternate day (always tricky with bye week schedules), etc. Obviously a football game in Annapolis takes a lot of logistics and first responder support that will need to be focused on much more imorktsnr activities keeping the city safe.

    My class has a major reunion this weekend and we also had the aftermath of a hurricane with flooding 15 yrs ago.

    This msg from class pres this morning:

    We have had a few inquiries about whether or not the Reunion will be canceled due to Hurricane Flo. I spoke with Navy’s Athletic Director, Chet Gladchuk, this morning, and he said he had no intentions of canceling the game. Cancellation would only occur if the City of Annapolis was shutdown which at this time does not look likely. ___ also spoke with the Superintendent’s Chief of Staff and as of this morning only the Friday Parade has been canceled. The Yard is operating and planning to be open. Depending on any flooding in the Yard and Annapolis, entry at Gates 1 (Main Gate) and Gate 8 (“back gate”) may be limited or prohibited but Gate 3 (by the Chapel) would be open to accommodate traffic. Current forecast for Annapolis shows we will experience rain and winds of about 15-20 knots. Your Reunion Committee will continue to monitor the situation and adjust as we can; however, we expect to conduct the reunion as planned. Fortunately, almost all our event venues are indoors or sheltered.

    Some personal pics from 15 yrs ago:

    We had the tail end of a Hurricane at our 30th a few years ago. Tailgate and game were a bit wet , but didn't dampen the spirit or comradery. Best of luck ,, enjoy the Reunion !
