Roll Tide, Chicago!

Just a few bits of new this week. I was in Tuscaloosa last weekend for the Chapter Leadership Workshop, and I forgot how hot it is down there in the summer. Chicago may be hot and humid, but Tuscaloosa is hot and really humid. I also forgot how cold it is inside of buildings. I spent half my time sweating and the other half freezing. But I did learn a lot of things that will make our chapter better. Watch this space, and our website, for news on a variety of Alabama-related topics.

Classic Game Viewing Party
Saturday, July 31 at 3 p.m.
Houndstooth Saloon

1992 National Championship: Alabama vs. Miami

Need I say more? Okay, I’ll say this: when’s the last time you saw that game? Exactly. Maybe, if that was before your time, you’ve never seen it. So come on out and get your Saturday night started early. (FYI, the Cubs are away that day.) The Houndstooth will be offering drink and appetizer specials. Plus, you can renew your chapter membership and get this year’s awesome t-shirt. Seriously, the t-shirt is really great.

Baron Huber and Corey Reamer
If you missed it, Baron and Corey visited our chapter on July 13 and were fantastic – friendly and full of great stories about Nick Saban, being a part of Bama history, and making Tim Tebow cry. Check out our website for videos of their speeches.

SEC Flag Football Tournament
Saturday, August 21. We have gotten better every year, making the semi-finals last year, I believe. Let’s get a great team together and follow up those SEC and national titles with this one! (No fancy rings if we win, sorry.)

If you are interested in playing, please email Laurel Stepp, She will be sending full details to all interested parties in early August. The cost is tentatively $25/person, which covers the fee the chapter gets charged to participate, plus donuts, snacks, water, and beer during the tournament. That price will come down the more people we have on the team, so sign up and bring your friends! (Especially athletic friends.) In addition, chapter members will get a discount.

That’s all I’ve got today. A new edition of Marc’s Random Thoughts below.
