YOU MUST WEAR BLUE!
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE AN ALUM!
Alumni should wear Drake clothing and bring any cool Drake (esp. Relays) paraphernalia you may have lying around. I have several Drake stickers/tattoos that can be applied for the evening so everyone can be "Drake For A Day".
You will also have a chance to visit my "Alumni Room" which pays tribute to Drake. It is definitely unique!
I have air hockey, table hockey, foosball, shuffleboard, board/card games...and a pinball machine available for play too (Big Ups to Bob Kulseth for his electronic wizardry!!). General socializing will be available too of course....
A special treat for children: Each year at Drake, Relays week kicks off with "street painting", where school organizations paint a street on campus highlighting the theme of that year's Relays. We will do the next best thing: Weather permitting, we'll have "driveway chalking". I'll buy chalk and the kids can show off their artistry on my driveway. Of course any artwork must have a Drake theme to it :)
If you are coming, please let me know so I can plan accordingly...the earlier the
better. Invite other interested partiers, well-behaved children, Drake alumni, and/or any of the
several million Drake wanna-bes. Park on the south side of 57th (side of street my house is on).
The University also wants a photo of everyone basking in the glory of all things Drake...just like the group below, so bring your best smile too!
As always, I reserve the right to "flog" (or "cane" if you're from Eastern Hemisphere), folks involved in deep discussions on
Remember, it's a weekend...we're here to have fun!
YOU MUST WEAR BLUE....NO EXCEPTIONS
Drake Relays: You'll laugh...you'll cry...you'll hurl.
