Congratulations and safe travels to all who are heading out for Ring Weekend (2015)!
The time has truly flown by (at least for us parents). The weather looks good and the giant 2015 ring is waiting for us.
Don’t forget your name tags for Friday night and send us a picture when you can.
Ring Weekend Information...
The Ring Banquet has traditionally been a "formal attire" affair. For the ladies, this translates in the choice of long, mid-calf or dressy short ... or even dressy evening ants / top. Gentlemen will feel comfortable in a
dark suit or tuxedo
For the Ring Ceremony itself ...remembering that the ceremony is for the cadets and you'll be standing far away (closer to Trophy Monument than down near the band shell) .. what you wear really will depend on your plans for the evening, if any. Whenever I attended, I wore a nice summer dress - appropriate for going out to dinner afterwards. I've seen several other folks very nicely attired in dressy pants and even dressy capris ... nice slacks / shirt or coat for the gentlemen.
