MC3 Reunion Weekend / Annual Meeting
Friday, April 17 – Sunday, April 19, 2020
New York, NY
The next MC3 Reunion Weekend and Annual Meeting will take place in New York City on
April 17 – 19, 2020 in conjunction with the Oxford Reunion. For MC3, this is a particularly
special occasion as we welcome Professor Irene Tracey (1985) on her first trip to the U.S. as
the 51st Warden of Merton College.
MC3’s Headquarters will be at The Yale Club (50 Vanderbilt Ave., New York) where we
have reserved a small block of rooms at a discounted rate of $287 plus taxes and fees for a
standard room. Hotel reservations must be made by March 3 to obtain the discount. You
may call The Yale Club at (212) 716-2100 or FAX (212) 983-3324. Be sure to mention the
Merton Room Block to receive the discounted rate.
The weekend will kick off with Oxford’s “Gala” Dinner at the landmark midtown
restaurant, Cipriani on Friday evening at 6:30 p.m. The Chancellor, Vice Chancellor, most Heads
of House and other distinguished guests will attend and the Magdalen College Choir will be
performing. Since this is the Warden’s first Oxford “Gala” as Warden, MC3 has made special
arrangements by reserving and paying for several tables at the dinner. All Mertonians and their
guests are welcome.
Saturday morning will be MC3’s Annual Meeting at The Yale Club at 9:30 a.m. (a light
breakfast will be available at 8:30 a.m.) followed by a casual lunch and a tour of NBC Studios
later in the afternoon.
Saturday evening will be MC3’s traditional Reception/Dinner at The Yale Club’s Roof
Dining Room and Terrace with the Reception beginning at 6:00 p.m. and the Dinner at 7:00 p.m.
Sunday morning Mertonians may meet in The Yale Club lobby at 10:00 a.m. for a bus ride
to Hudson Yards for a tour and visit to The Shed, the cultural center in Hudson Yards that
commissions, produces and presents a wide range of activities in performing arts, visual arts,
and pop culture. Lunch will be on your own. The bus will return to The Yale Club by 3:00 p.m.
Your Invitation, Welcome Letter, and a Weekend Brochure with further details will be
mailed to you on February 14, 2020. The package will include an RSVP form which needs
to be returned no later than March 30.
