Military Ball

The Military Ball is a large formal dance open to all JROTC cadets within the Washoe County School District. It is held annually at the Reno Conventions Center and many cadets go in groups, sharing money to rent a limo and going out to dinner prior to the event. Each cadet is allowed to bring one date, and they may come even if they are not in ROTC, as long as they have good conduct during the evening. Males must wear their Class A uniform. However, if they are a guest and not in ROTC, they are asked to wear a suit and tie. For females, wearing the uniform is optional, but most prefer to wear a dress. This event is like a military prom and most females have their nails and hair done prior to the dance and dress very elegantly. It costs three dollars for an individual ticket and five dollars for a couple.
