Class Tailgate at the Harvard-Cornell Game
October 8, 2016
Kickoff at 1:00 PM, Tailgate at 10:30 AM

Gene Skowonski sends this update on the tailgate at the Harvard-Cornell Game: 

Dear Classmates,

Just a quick update on our Class tailgate at the Harvard-Cornell football game in Cambridge on October 8, 2016. The response has been very good to date. 19 classmates and guests have signed up so far. Our group right now is as follows:

•John and Rose Ashby
•Jim and Deborah Burrows
•Jim and Ellie Craver
•Alice and Tony Davies
•The party of John Howe (7 people)

Daniel Howe, ‘59
Sandra Howe, ‘60
John Howe, ‘65
Nermin Hasanovic, ‘20
Rachel Howe (daughter)
Amanda Howe Johnson
David Johnson

•Kevin McCullough and girlfriend Valerie
•Arch O’Reilly
•Gene Skowronski

It appears very likely that we will achieve the 20 people necessary for the reduced ticket price. Accordingly, the ticket price will probably be $15.00 per adult with children under 12 and students at $5.00 per person. The cost of the tailgate for the food and beverage will be approximately $15.00 to $20.00 per person.

The details in the tailgate were set forth in the earlier email. The tailgate will be held in the parking lot directly behind the closed end of the Stadium, a great location. We will have simple tailgate fare consisting of grinder sandwiches, potato chips, brownies, beer, wine, water and soft drinks. We will have our traditional Class Toast and sing our 50th Reunion medley of Harvard football songs. All are welcome! The tailgate will be casual and informal with the emphasis on fun and camaraderie. We have excellent seats on about the 20-yard line near the Harvard Band where we can enjoy its great music during and after the game.

The Harvard football team is off to a very good start with solid victories over Rhode Island and Brown. Cornell is undefeated with a 2-0 record including a 27-13 victory over Yale on Saturday. It promises to be a very good game with important Ivy League Championship implications. Cornell is vastly improved over last year and it will be a very hard-fought game. Harvard is an interesting team and exciting to watch. Our quarterback, Joe Viviano, III, a highly-touted recruit who has been sidelined with injuries most of the last three seasons, is healthy and is doing a great job. Once again, Harvard has a high octane offense with a very good quarterback, an excellent corps of receivers, fine runners and a very good offensive line. They are aggressive, imaginative and creative. They are a blast to watch! The defense is solid.

We hope you will be able to join us for the tailgate. If you are interested in attending the game and tailgate, please contact Gene Skowronski at This email address is being protected from spambots.
