Fleet Week

Spread the word! Great news! The Golden Gate Parents Assoc Chapter just received info from Anne Rockhold, an Annapolis Parents who is part of their USNA Parents Club, FLEET WEEK is on and we are once again invited to join in the fun - Sunday, October 9th. Please gather your group and RSVP ASAP:

Important details below – please read, as there are big changes this year to location, timing, parking, etc:

Location & Timing
: We have just secured special permission from the National Park Service to use the West Bluff Amphitheater Area in Crissy Field (close to the Golden Gate Bridge) for our annual BBQ Potluck (Treasure Island is currently under construction). They have granted us an exclusive permit to use the space in the morning, so we encourage everyone to arrive early as we won't be able to save space after 11am. Parking is expected to fill up by 9am, so you may want to make a full day of it!

Parking: There is a small parking lot for the "West Bluff Picnic Area" nearby - expected to fill by 9am or earlier. Please carpool, arrive early, use public transportation, or plan to bike or walk from other parking locations. We cannot guarantee if the lot will be available for "dropping off" during the day.

Bring: potluck items to share (see details below), chairs, picnic tables for your group, blankets, binoculars, camera, sunscreen & other drinks for your group (water will be provided; beer, wine, etc are allowed). USNA Parents Club will provide hamburgers, hotdogs, veggie burgers, chips, condiments, bottled water, utensils & paper goods. Potluck Assignments are based on Last Name:
A–F Green salad for 12
G–L Fruit salad for 12
M–P Potato or pasta salad for 12
Q–Z 20 individual dessert items (brownies, cookies, cupcakes, etc. - not full cakes or pies, please)

Attire: Dress in layers and don’t forget your spirit gear!
