OLDEST MEMBER OF 1983   Stu Hedley  Pearl Harbor Survivor

The great class of 1983 added a very unique and distinguished member to their ranks.  
Stuart Hedley, at age 92 is the newest and of course oldest classmate of 1983.  Stuart is the President of the San Diego Chapter of the Pearl Harbor SurvivorsAssociation and was aboard the U.S.S. Virginia on December 7th, 1941.   During a previous broadcast, Stuart had indicated that his life long dream was to attend the Naval Academy.  He was crushed when he did not get a nomination.  Some dreams take longer than others.  The Class of 1983 made it happen.  On a live wsRadio broadcast in 2011, Stuart was surprised to be named an honorary member of the class of 1983.   He is proudly displaying the class acknowledgement (Second to the Left) in the photo.  He was provided additional 83 gear and if anyone questioned him about looking a little old to be from 83, he has been coached to answer, "we had a real plebe year".

Katz is working on group seating tickets. Many classmates have season tickets, but you MUST have a ticket to get in the stadium. 

Budget is forthcoming. We are trying to keep costs down, while still having a quality and fun weekend. Prices will be established in about 30 to 60 days. We will be using the Alumni Association's system for registration. We will have a go-live in early May. 

We did not get a hotel. It is interesting to see the rates people are getting... If you block rooms, the rates are much higher. 

 Last reunion we did not fill our quota and almost got hit with thousands of dollars in penalties. It took some tap dancing, but we did not pay. 

We need volunteers to help with check-in on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. We may be organizing a golf outing (informal) on Thursday,  sign up as a volunteer under the sign up link.
