Ladies and gentlemen of Purdue Rugby.
In addition to being an artistic success, the Purdue Alumni Reunion has met,
and thanks to generous sponsorships and on the spot donations, exceeded its
fundraising goals. We will give a full accounting when all the bills are
paid, the last jersey orders filled, and a few receipts and promised
donations are collected. We will publicize large donations if the ruggers
involved do not protest.
We will purchase for the college mens' team
23 "A" jerseys from Canterbury, J. Ianson on the sleeve. Approx $1600
22 "B" Jerseys. $1000
For the College Women's team
23 "A" Jerseys $1600
A $500 Spirit award will be made to the College Women's team. We propose
that their be an annual "Spirit" award.for the team most active in planning
and participation in the Alumni weekend.
$1500 will be donated to the Timmy Foundation to assist children in need to
have operations. 80's stalwart Chuck Deitzen runs the foundation and donates
much of his time to good works. Chuck deserves a "best dressed" award for
his weekend, though I cannot decide which costume is best.
We estimate that there will be more money available. We may keep a starter
fund to assist next years alumni match. We hope to build towards the next
big one in five years by having a well attended Alumni weekend every year.
We will suggest to the Current team that they reserve the first weekend of
May every year for Alumni.
