2012 Penn State Track and Field/Cross Country Alumni Reunion (May 18-19, 2012)
Dear Penn State Track and Field/Cross Country Alumni—
I hope this finds you well and excited for the upcoming Outdoor Track and Field Season!! Please find our Registration form for the 2012 Penn State Track and Field/Cross Country Alumni Reunion Weekend linked below. We are excited to be hosting this event, as we, the Penn State Track and Field/Cross Country program, have joined forces with the Annual Harry Groves Golf Outing, and the Penn State Varsity S Club, to really bring our great alumni back to Happy Valley!! We want to provide all of our alumni with a chance to "come home" and connect with their past, meet the present team, and join us in our pursuit for future success. We have such amazing alumni and we want you all to continue to be a part of the Proud Penn State program that continues today.
Our Alumni weekend will start off with an informal social on Friday night, where you will get the chance to meet the coaching staffs, past and present, and start off the weekend in a casual atmosphere. On Saturday morning, we will start with Alumni "Run" and "Fun" at the Nittany Lion Outdoor Track facility. We will have everything planned from a campus run, to relay races, to field event fun for everyone young to old. (All in the name of a good time)!! In addition, you will be able to observe the 2012 team's practice, as we prepare for the NCAA First Round Competition. From there, you can join in on an organized tour of the Penn State Sports Museum, a group Hike of Mount Nittany, or play in the Annual Harry Groves Golf Tourney. All focused on having a good time, and remembering the "good ol' days".
After the days' activities, I hope everyone will join us on Saturday Evening for a social hour and dinner at the Ashenfelter Indoor track. Here we will recognize all the "champions" from the days' activities and of course the famous "award winners" of the Harry Groves Golf Tourney. We will hear some famous words from Coach Groves and then be honored to hear from our very own, Olympic Gold Medalist, Horace Ashenfelter!! Mix that in with a raffle (where everyone will win something), and this should be a grand way to round off the weekend.
Please print and fill out the attached Registration form and send it back by the May 4th deadline. All updates for the Alumni Weekend will be sent out via email from the Varsity 'S' Club at firstname.lastname@example.org. As always if you have any questions regarding that Men's and Women's Track and Field program, please contact us directly at the PSU Track and Field office, 814-863-3144 or contact our Director of Operations, Jess Riden, via email, at email@example.com.
My goal is to provide you all with a chance to relax and enjoy Penn State, Happy Valley, and our program and of course your former team mates and coaches. The Penn State Track and Field/Cross Country program is committed to "Honoring our Past; and Empowering our Future" and I hope to see you here in May.
