On Friday and Saturday, October 12th and 13th the U of M will Celebrate Homecoming. The entire weekend will be on a BYOB basis with N/A’s and mixers with ice provided. Any questions about this, please feel free to contact me. We will also be selling tickets for the Annual Scholarship Raffle and would be happy to sell you some chances to win via our online donation station. More info to follow regarding the prizes and ticket cost.
To kick the weekend off at 6PM on Friday the 12th we will welcome alumni with appetizers provided through Kevin Martinez (MN ’97) who now owns The Rack Bar and Grille in Burnsville www.therackbar.com He also mentioned bringing some servers to help out, it’s worth the trip and I’m sure you’ll thank me later.
The parade begins at 7PM down University traveling east from the corner of 15th and ends at TCF Bank Stadium. http://www.homecoming.umn.edu/parade/
Following the parade at about 8 – 8:30 we will have some entertainment provided by our one and only Hans Okerstrom (MN ’92) with his band High Octane. www.high-octane-mn.com These guys seriously rock the house and their playlist is sure to satisfy all ages!
Once that wraps up after 10PM the pizza ovens will be cranking out some snacks via Ryan Elsner (MN ’98) and his new venture with Chanticlear Pizza. They can also be purchased at Kowalski’s locations or go to www.chanticlearfrozenpizza.com for more information.
It’s OK if you can’t make it on Friday, we’ll be having the omelet chef back again starting around 8AM to cook for you. Custom, made to order omelets and basic breakfast beverages including orange juice and coffee to pregame. At 10:30 we’ll be doing the scholarship raffle drawings and have the game available to watch on the big screens if you don’t plan to buy tickets to the game.
It’s going to be a great weekend, now do yourself a favor and reach out to 5 of the guys you have not seen in a while and forward this on. Our active chapter has 34 members and 23 associate members, the time for Delta Chi MN to shine is clearly upon us and we appreciate your support.
