August Alumni Luncheon – 8/15

Ray Wellborn speaks on Navy Football

Attention USNAAAA Chapter Members and Atlanta Area USNA Alumni,
Please plan to attend Atlanta Chapter’s August Luncheon on Friday,  August 15, 2014, at 11:30 a.m.
The August Luncheon will have Ray ‘Buddy’ Wellborn ’59 as the guest speaker giving us his insight on Navy Football.  For those that heard him speak, you already know what a treat this will be.  For those who don’t know, Ray graduated from USNA in 59 winning the Thompson Trophy for Athletics.  In his varsity years he played on Navy Football teams with winning seasons: 1956 (6-1-2), 1957 (9-1-1),and 1958(6-3). He was on the Navy’s 1956 team that beat Notre Dame (and Heisman Trophy winner Paul Hornung 33-7).  The next year he was AP’s Back of the Week for scoring all three touchdowns in Navy’s victory over Notre Dame 20-6 in South Bend. He shared the rushing honors for the Navy team that shutout Army 14-0 in 1957 and then beat Rice 20-7 in the Cotton Bowl Championship in 1958.
As with any USNAAAA you will be able to catch up with classmates and shipmates, and hear what is happening locally within the Chapter and in Annapolis with the Alumni Association and Foundation.
The Atlanta Chapter’s August luncheon is scheduled for Friday, August 15 2014, at 11:30 a.m., at 57th Fighter Group. For directions, visit the chapter’s website: Lunch is priced at $20 for members and $25 for non-members (a great opportunity to become a member and save $5) and as always, exact change is always appreciated.  Feel free to bring guests and encourage slacker classmates to join us.
