2008 "96/06" Hospitality Tent at W&M Homecoming

We had more than 250 attendees in 2007, our inaugural year, and already have 500+ preregistered attendees for 2008.  


Photos from the 2007 "96/06" W&M Homecoming Tent are available at www.9606.org. View last year's attendees list at: www.9606.eventbrite.com.


If you are going back to homecoming there will again be a great place to tailgate with fellow friends and alumni at the homecoming football game. For the third year, there will be a tent focused on graduates from 1985 to 1995 and next to this “85?95 Tent” for the second year, there will be a tent focused on graduates from 1996 – 2006 in which ‘07 & '08 graduates are also welcome. 


The best part of the event is the cost… Free! The cost of the event will be underwritten by the generous donations of time and money by alumni hosts and benefactors. This crucial support will allow us to provide a superior environment for mingling. Both tents are free and open to any alumni and friends. You are welcome to stay for ten minutes or five hours! To learn more about both tents including becoming a class host or benefactor, please visit: www.8595.org or www.9606.org. IDs will be required & checked to enjoy alcoholic beverages. 


This year's menu includes an assortment of food from Chick-fil-A, bread-ends & house from The Cheese Shop, assorted snack items, soda, water, beer, wine (from The Williamsburg Winery) & mimosas. This year we have hired 2 staff to help set-up, work and clean-up the event.


Both groups ("85/95" & "96/06") are separately managed and funded, however working together in the planning process The “8595” and “9606” Homecoming Tents are also not officially part of the W&M Society of the Alumni; however we have been in close contact with the Alumni House to make sure we can work together on this venture. This grassroots effort is designed to give a place for any W&M alumni, specially the non-reunion years. A place to mingle, tailgate and enjoy watching some great Tribe football.


Since we do not charge admission, there is no need for us to bounce people or allot food or beverages. This keeps things simple and hospitable. Tent Benefactors make this arrangement possible. In addition to their host commitments, Tent Benefactors also contribute funds or make in-kind donations that defray the cost of the gathering.
