The first two years the challenge was limited to alumni chapters from Virginia schools including VCU, UVA, VaTech, JMU, VMI, etc. so the competition was good, but not good enough to beat MasonNation. This year the event will be expanded to include alumni chapters from out-of-state schools and we expect participation from schools with strong local alumni chapters like LSU and UNC so a 3-PETE is not a given. If you have been thinking about getting involved, now would be a good a time 🙂
The first planning meeting with members of the alumni chapters from all the other schools will be next week (May 11-14, exact day, time, and place TBD). If you would like to get involved and participate in the planning, or just want an excuse to meet a few other local Richmond alum for a drink after work, send an email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will let you know when and where the meeting will be next week (we will also post the event on the blog and you can just show up).
A weekday evening in August with a date to be determined
