Getman in Antarctica? Are you kidding?

No kidding. Browse to Feb Club Emeritus and click on the link Feb 1 − Antarctica in the left navigation bar. We're not making this up. The photo of Chris and Toddy at right is incontrovertible evidence after the fact.

What is Feb Club? And what's the Mory's connection?

Feb Club Emeritus 2008 started it all. FCE 2009 took it to the next level. Now, it's time to do it again. Last year, over 5,000 Yale alums from the classes of 1941-2008 got together over February's 28 nights, in 62 cities on 6 continents around the globe for a series of informal, fun parties of every size, shape and theme. 2010 should be bigger and better than ever, with 75 cities hosting events from Ann Arbor to Antarctica. Find your city of choice on the left (scroll down for the International Night Lists) and RSVP on the appropriate event page(s) now.

What is Feb Club Emeritus? Nothing complicated. Simply a series of multi-generational parties every night from February 1-28, in cities, towns, and incorporated entities around the world where Yale alums, significant others, friends, relatives, and random party-crashers get together in a relaxed, informal setting just to have fun with a group of people who share something in common. Now in its third year, Feb Club Emeritus 2008 and 2009 have been worldwide affairs where thousands of alums from the classes of 1941 through 2008 have gotten together in cities from Seattle to Shanghai, from Paris to Philadelphia. Nothing formal, no fundraising, no speeches, just casual, laid-back parties hosted by random alums of all ages, shapes and sizes.

Mory's Cups have become a key focal point of the Feb Club tradition. In 2008, a specially commissioned Mory's Cup featuring the Feb Club Emeritus logo and the list of the inaugural cities criss-crossed the country to over a dozen Feb Club parties, and it became such an integral part of the events that in 2009 no less than six Mory's Cups traveled the globe from Kabul to California pouring red, gold, purple, velvet and other concoctions for the assembled alums.
