It’s almost time, gentlemen! This Saturday (December 14th) is the DZAA’s Secret Santa Gift Exchange. The party will be from 8 pm until 11 pm and will be held at the home of Jon DeJongh. All Alumni are encouraged to attend, and wives/girlfriends/fiancées/partners/significant others are welcome and invited!
This year’s event is a “drink exchange” – everyone who indicated they would be participating should have already received your Secret Santa name (if you have not, contact Kyllan Purdon immediately). During the party, the gifts will be exchanged and each Brother will have the opportunity to enjoy a drink from their gift right then and there. It should certainly make for an entertaining evening.
Remember that this is a holiday bash, so be sure to dress accordingly. This event will take the place of December’s Third Thursday event. The regularly scheduled Third Thursdays will resume in January.
We look forward to seeing everyone there, and remember – HAVE A HOLLY, JOLLY CHRISTMAS THIS YEAR!
Okay, so it’s not quite Third Thursday – but with the Fall Alumni Meeting coming up this Friday, October’s Third Thursday was changed to a Final Friday! Right after the meeting (which begins at 7:00 p.m. in Room 2707 of the Marshall Center on Friday, October 25th, for those who may have missed the announcements!), the Alumni will be heading over to Mr. Dunderbak’s for the October Alumni Happy Hour! Mr. Dunderbak’s is located at 14929 Bruce B. Downs Boulevard, Tampa, Florida. Fellow Alumni who have attended Third Thursdays in the past can attest to all the good times and great fellowship had by all who attend! So don’t miss out, come join us for the meeting and the Happy Hour afterwards.
And lest anyone forget, the very next day (Saturday, October 26th), the DZAA will be holding a Tailgate at Raymond James Stadium in preparation for the game against the 8th ranked Louisville Cardinals. More details about the exact time and location will follow. The current plan, however, is to have a spread in the “Mall Parking Lot”. We know this is not where most season ticket holders park, but it will afford us the most space. The lot entrance is on MLK BLVD just East of Himes, right behind the new Panera Bread on MLK. The cost for parking is $15. If you have a parking pass in another lot, feel free to wander over and join us. We will have an assortment of breakfast foods, but of course, feel free to bring something! You can FB message Brother Kyllan Purdon or Brother David Ebnder the day of to find out exactly where everyone will be!
Homecoming weekend is upon us, and although we face probable defeat on the football field, the DZAA looks forward to a successful Alumni Weekend. We have planned a weekend full of fun and camaraderie for Delta Zetas young and old.
The weekend will kick-off with the bi-annual general meeting of the DZAA at the Marshal Center at 7:00 PM on Friday, October 25th. The meeting will include reports from various DZAA Officers, a vote on the 2014 Budget and By-Laws Updates and the Alumni Instillation Ceremony to be performed for recent graduates.
At 8:00 PM (or when the meeting closes) we will head over to Mr. Dunderbak’s for an Alumni Happy Hour!
The following day, Saturday, October 26th, we will be holding a Tailgate at Raymond James Stadium in preparation for the game against the 8th ranked Louisville Cardinals. The time for the game and the tailgate is TBD. We will update you when more information is available.
The finale for the weekend will be the first ever USF Chi Phi Scholarship Scramble on Sunday, October 27th at 8:00 AM. All proceeds for this event will be deposited into the Delta Zeta Scholarship Fund which is used to award scholarships annually to the undergraduate members of the Delta Zeta Chapter. To register for the golf outing, you can follow this link. The cost is $280 for a foursome or $75 for an individual registrant.
We hope you will consider joining us for the weekend! You can learn more about all of these events here on the website, as well as on our facebook group.
