SOCIETY MEMBERSHIP DUES

Our Denver West Point Society is kicking off a membership drive.  The most proximate benefits of dues paying membership in our Society are lower costs at functions requiring payment (Founders Day, Quarterly Speaker Series, Family Picnic, etc.). Annual dues are only $25 ($60 for three years).  So please consider actually becoming a dues paying member of our Society by clicking here. Doing so helps us hold the cost down for the Society's events throughout the year.

 

VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTIONS -

We also ask you to consider going above and beyond the normal call of duty.  The Founders Day link provides interested grads an opportunity to make tax deductible contributions in support of West Point and our Society in three different ways:

1) WPS DENVER OUTREACH DONATION - These contributions support our West Point admissions efforts here in Colorado, by funding our Admissions Field Force's attendance at local College Fairs.

2) WPS DENVER DISTINGUISHED SOCIETY DONATION - The Association of Graduates has designated our Denver Society as a Distinguished Society every year, for as long as anyone on the Board can remember.  Help us maintain that record by financially supporting our extensive list of annual events besides Founders Day, including: Rockies Games, the Navy game watch party, the annual Service Academy golf tournament; periodic speaker dinners, and the summer family picnic.  

3) SPONSOR A CADET CANDIDATE AT FOUNDERS DAY - Every year the West Point Society of Denver invites cadet candidates who have already received an offer of admissions, or who have been determined to be "admissible", to attend our Founders Day Celebration at no cost.  You can sponsor one of these future leaders by covering the cost of their meal, $70.

A beautiful morning at Eisenhower Golf Course greeted the players of the Annual Tri-Academy Golf Tournament this past Friday. By the time the cards were turned in that afternoon; however, the weather had turned stormy and Air Force had released a storm of its own by maintaining the coveted Rindahl Trophy and sweeping most of the other prizes.
Army had a strong attendance over our brother Academies, but fell short on the scorecard tally. The threesome headed up by our fearless leader Brian MacDonald, ’83, had the highest score of the West Point golfers with a score of 65. Brian’s group was rounded out by Bruce Michalowski, ’70; and Howard Cannon, ‘56. Great work guys!
While we didn’t have a foursome in the top three, the USMA was lucky enough to snag the Last Place prize of a bag of tennis balls with the stellar team captained by Jay Bridge, ’86, of Bridge, William Pursel, ’86; Robert Mero, ’87; and Joe Depinto, ’86. Thanks for coming from so far away to join us guys. It was great to see some old friends.
The Longest Drive was captured by Mike Bell, ’09, of Navy with a drive that would still be going if not for the laws of physics. Heck of a poke Mike! The past Superintendent of USAFA, LTG(R) Mike Gould almost holed out and won the Closest to the Pin contest. Impressive shot sir!
The Air Force maintained the Gilbert F. Rindahl Trophy with the low score of 56 by the team of Mike Gould, ’76; Jim Spittler, ’65; Bob Filer, ’84; and Ken Korpak, ’86. Navy followed close behind in second with a score of 57 from the team of John Virden, ’76; Will Gury, ’01; and Barry Hubbard, ’81. We go back to USAFA for third place and a score of 61 by the team of Cass Casada, ’71; John Koch, ’71; Robin Hanson, ’69; and AJ Kuhle, ’04.
While I wasn’t happy with the overall turnout, the group that did attend had a blast and all attendees made a commitment to bring a friend next year. I announced that we would be adding a charitable arm to the tournament and to that end, building out the committee to run the tournament starting this coming year. I was lucky enough to have a number of young grads step up to assist. AJ Kuhle, ’04, the former USAFA basketball standout along with Mike Bell, ’09 and Tim Tacl, ’09 from Navy stepped forward to help with sponsors and to increase turnout. Thanks guys.
We are looking at a late July/early August date for next year and will get the dates out as soon as they solidify dates later this year in November. Until then…BEAT Navy and BEAT Air Force!

Summertime in Denver’s beautiful Washington Park typically fills the park with outdoor enthusiasts, families and paddle-boaters. However on Sunday, June 25th 2017, a diverse group of menacing toddlers, brand-new parents, proud dog owners and various other misfits descended onto Picnic Area 3A adorned in black and gold. Closer inspection revealed that this was another gathering of the ever-growing membership of the West Point Society of Denver. In hosting its Sixth Annual Family Picnic, the 2nd oldest West Point society continues to sponsor activities that attract graduates and their families to come together for fellowship and friendship. The 40 attendees to this year’s Family Picnic spanned 30+ years of graduating classes and undoubtedly featured some members of future classes in the 2030’s. The Society plans to continue hosting this event for many years to come.
