Mark your calendars! The 2nd Annual Pre-Game tailgate (hosted by the RBAA Young Alumni Council) will be taking place on August 15th at the Redcoat field. We had a huge alumni turn out last year and expect even more in attendance so don’t miss the FREE FOOD and chance to reconnect with friends! Practice starts at 6pm and but we plan to start the festivities at 8pm. So we can plan appropriately for food, please RSVP on the Facebook page so we have a fairly decent headcount. For more information please check out the event page linked above and then dust off your favorite tailgate chair and help spread the word! :o)
Don’t Forget! These Deadlines are Approaching!
- A late fee of $5 will be added for registrations dated Aug.1st to Sept.15th.
- After Sept.15, only walk-up registrations on the morning of Homecoming will be accepted, which incurs an additional $10 fee, plus donation. Please bring exact cash or check that morning.
The RBAA’s allotment of tickets for the 2015 Homecominggame v. Missouri have been sold out for several weeks. This is the first time we have run out of tickets prior to the deadline. With this being such a big SEC game, we really appreciate the Athletic Association allocating for us an even bigger block of tickets than last year.
Don’t let the lack of tickets from us dissuade you from returning,
as there may be other options available. At press time, outlets such as Stub Hub did not have tickets listed. However, sites such as Ebay and Ticket City
show a good number of tickets available. Additionally, members with tickets can swap tickets they have purchased with other Redcoat alumni registered to march only (this option will not apply to non-participating Redcoat alumni).
Check the RBAA Facebook page often as well as the RBAA website. And please read e-mails. They will all contain the most up to date information to assist you in having a great 2015 Homecoming! We look forward to seeing you!

Join the Young Alumni Council (YAC)
The YAC was established in response to a recognized need for tailored young alumni initiatives. As the young alumni voice in the RBAA, the YAC hopes to ensure that recent graduates have a seamless transition into the RBAA and always feel right at home. While we are all young at heart, YAC initiatives are geared towards alumni under the age 35. WE ARE BY NO MEANS A SEPARATE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION, but recognize that the needs and wants of younger alumni are different from those who came before us. Interested in getting involved with the YAC?
