The 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!

Please take a minute to check out Bob Vollhaber’s (UofMN) website at www.beav-alaskaadventure.blogspot.com. He has canoed about 4,000 miles since March 27th of this year. He started in the Seattle area and has gone through Alaska. He is now canoeing on the Bering Sea. You can follow his journey on his website. Click on the link that tracks him every ten minutes. It is something that has never been done before.
Michele Nichols, a cousin to our late brother in Delta Chi is asking for some help:
On Sunday August 18th, our friends from High Octane will be rocking the Cherry Pit in Saint Paul MN off White Bear Ave to help raise funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. There will be drink specials and food choices as well as other ways to donate to a great cause.
As you may already know our brother Christopher recently lost his battle with the disease at the young age of 37. Please join me in showing his family how we support our Fraternal Brothers on Sunday the 18th at 3pm.
You can also donate at: http://pages.teamintraining.org/mn/nikesf13/mnicholbr7
Please put this event in your calendar and come rock out to some High Octane on August 18th! You can warm up now by viewing the video below!
The 5th annual Delta Chi Scholarship Scramble is now open for booking your two-some. Remember this is a two man scramble with your cart partner going off hole #1 at Francis Gross National GC in Minneapolis on August 17th, 2013 at noon sharp.
