A Gopher Homecoming to remember, September 28th, 2013

Floyd_of_rosedaleThe last weekend of September will be the U of MN Gopher Homecoming. The Gophers will face Iowa in the battle for Floyd of Rosedale. The parade will be held on Friday the 27th starting at 7PM and go East down University Ave. Feel free to bring a beverage of your choosing and hang out with fellow alumni.  Many will be bringing our kids to see the parade as well, I’m sure several of us will be hanging in the Alumni Chamber through the evening. Please join us!

Saturday will kick off at 10AM with a build your own bloody bar, coffee, N/A’s and juice provided along with some pastries and muffins etc. Lunch will be served at noon and we are roasting a 150# pig starting at 3AM. Game time is 2:30 and if you do not have tickets the alumni are encouraged to continue the day’s festivities at a local watering hole nearby as we usually do!

The Scholarship Foundation will again be hosting the annual fundraiser raffle / silent auction with ticket sales both Friday and Saturday. Word is we’ll have a Gopher hockey jersey signed and another by Darby Hendrickson up for silent auction! Stay tuned at www.twincitiesdeltachi.com for more updates and soon to be pictures of the prizes in the raffle / auction!
