Welcome to the RMC Class of 75 Web Site

This web site is run by the RMC Class of 1975.
Our mission:
To provide an on-line presence for the members of the “RMC" graduating class of 1975,
to exchange information about our class, the RMC Club, the RMC Alumni & RMC Foundation regarding reunions, status of classmates, fund-raising, class projects, etc.

** Please bring any errors or omissions to the attention of the class Web Master.**

ANNOUNCEMENTS - [this page last updated: February 28, 2018 ]
 CLASS WEB SITEAs you can see, our web site layout, format and URL have changed significantly. 
The reason for the change at this juncture is that the RMC Club’s website service provider
decided to stop hosting all of the class web sites and detach them from the Club site.
A one month notice of this decision was given the RMC Club in January.

The problem stemmed from the fact that some of the Branch and Class websites, although hosted at no additional cost to the Club, or the Branch / Class, were managed directly by individual Branch and Class Webmasters. Unfortunately, despite everyone’s best efforts, many of those sites were insecure, which then led to the Club site being hacked.

A decision on moving forward with our Class of 75 web site could not be made until a decision was received from the RMC Club. That occurred on April 12, 2017.

Each Branch and Class will now be expected to develop their own website (or Facebook page) and find/fund their own service provider. For those Branches and Classes who may still prefer to have the RMC Club website service provider host their site, it would be at the expense of the class, not the Club.

The decision your Class Secretary and I have made at this time is to try the free service hosted by Google. Ergo, the reason for the strange URL  <https://sites.google.com/site/rmcclassof75>
Should this option prove to be inadequate, we'll pursue the alternative option that involves funding.

In the mean time, please spend some time on our new site, navigating the sections and the new features including our class Google Group, and fill out the reunion attendance questionnaire.

Your feedback, comments, suggestions are welcome and encouraged by emailing either:
                 Class Secretary (Cam Carbert) @ <cam.carbert.rmc75@gmail.com>

                 Web Master (Rick McCarthy) @ <10716mccarthy@gmail.com> 

Thank you,
 Rick McCarthy, RMC Class of 75 Web Master

REUNION 2020 and BEYOND** A note from our RMC Club Executive Director regarding future reunion weekends **
"The new Commandants of RMC Kingston and CMR Saint-Jean, in coordination with the Club and other key stakeholders, have schedule future Reunion Weekend (RWE) dates to coincide with the end of their respective First Year Orientation Programs (FYOP).
This means that all College events such as obstacle course and badging ceremonies will still occur during Reunion Weekends, but those weekends will now take place approximately 2 weeks after Labour Day ( mid-September, not end-September). 
Near-term future dates for RWE just released are as follows:
2018: 14-16 Sept (Class of 73)
2019: 13-15
 Sept (Class of 74)
2020: 18-20
 Sept (Class of 75)
2021: 17-19
 Sept (Class of 76)
2022: 16-18 
Sept (Class of 77)
