Aggie Muster POSTPONED

FacebooktwitterrssFacebooktwitterrss

Howdy Ags!

It’s with heavy heart that I announce the decision to postpone our 2020 Aggie Muster.

We were hoping to wait a little longer to make this decision, but it’s become clear we have no choice but to make this decision now. We will be refunding everyone’s money who has purchased tickets, and as soon as we can nail down a date for this year’s gathering we will be in touch with that information.

Please understand, our Muster gathering WILL happen. It’ll just be held later this year.

There will be a roll call of all the names streamed online from the Association of Former Students on April 21st.

From the Association: “Since 2018, The Association of Former Students has organized a live reading each April of the entire year’s roll, more than 1,600 names broadcast and livestreamed from the Clayton W. Williams, Jr. Alumni Center. Plans are in motion to ensure that the live Worldwide Roll Call takes place again this year, so we assure you that every name will be called on campus again this year.”

Information on how to tune in to the Worldwide Roll Call will be released closer to the date.

If anyone is wishing to hold small gatherings privately on April 21st, we’d love to hear about it. Or if there is interest in some sort of virtual gathering, we’d be happy to facilitate that. Aggie Muster is so important to the Aggie Spirit, and we will not let this virus stop us from this tradition.

Everyone be safe out there.

Gig’em & God Bless,

Aggie Muster 2020

The Muster Tradition

Century-old roots provide the basis for Muster as Aggies know it today. It has changed, yet the Spirit in which it was established remains the same. Since the founding of Texas A&M, every Aggie has lived and become a part of the Aggie Spirit. What we feel today is not just the camaraderie of fellow Aggies, it is the Spirit of hundreds of thousands of Aggies who have gone before us, and who will come after us. Muster is how that Spirit is remembered and celebrated, and it will always continue to unite Texas A&M and the Aggie family. A&M may change, but the Spirit never will.

Muster in Middle Tennessee

We will gather at Yazoo Brewery Taproom starting at 6:00 pm on April 21st. Meal will begin at approximately 6:30 pm, and the program around 7:15 pm.

Yazoo is located at 900 River Bluff Dr in Madison, TN. Just off of Myatt Drive, turn beside the Dollar General and go to the end of the block. You’ll see Yazoo to your right. Plenty of free parking.

 

Our Muster Speaker this year is Rebecca Adair Beloney ’86. While at Texas A&M, Rebecca was a member of the Battalion and Aggieland Staff. She received her Masters Degree in adult learning from the University of Wyoming in 2012. She spent 5 years as full-time live-in residence hall director at Texas A&M and 6 years at the University of Wyoming. She worked on the Texas A&M University System staff in a variety of roles for almost 20 years, including communications, publications, human resources, and admissions. She was Texas A&M University Academic Coach at the Academic Success Center (until 2015) and worked at Volunteer State Community College in Gallatin TN (until 2019). She is the author of new book “Whatever’s next, it’s not 13th grade” for parents of college students.

Dinner will be catered by Slow Burn Hot Chicken. Your first pint from Yazoo will be included with your dinner ticket. (Non-alcoholic drinks will also be provided. No outside alcohol allowed in the taproom.)

Adult tickets are $25.

Dues paying members will received $5 off their ticket price and a club branded gift. Dues go towards hosting future events, help towards scholarship funding, and will get you special benefits at future events through the year.

Adult ticket prices will go up to $30 after April 10th and at the door, so grab your tickets early!

New this year is a $0 ticket option. This is simply an option to be counted as attending so we know how big of an area we need in the taproom. You will not be counted in the food count, nor receive the first pint. (You can purchase at the door if you change your mind that night.)
