On September 9th, approximately fifty members and some family took a bus trip to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. It was a great trip. Breakfast on the bus, and a hot lunch under a tent by the riverside where many years ago new cadets would come from NYC.
After lunch we went by shuttle bus to Michie Stadium to watch the game. The game ball was delivered by a member of the West Point Golden Knights, their parachute team. During half time The skydivers landed on the field again.
It was a great game, and the best part was, West Point won the game, beating Buffalo. There was a lot of cannon fire.
After the game we meandered down to the river, had more to eat and drink, and then took the bus ride home.
Long story short, it was a great day beautiful weather, and the home team won.
