Teke Homecoming 2019 Is Upon Us
Alright, Williamsburg Civil War and Revolutionary War Road Trip to Williamsburg Virginia is completed. So let us move on to Homecoming. Homecoming is the weekend of October 10-13 against Arkansas. A block of rooms (TKE D.C. Teke-Alumni) has already been reserved at the Homewood Suites, 249 Ruccio Drive, Lexington, Ky. (Phone: 859-223-0880). Due to Kentucky’s improving football program and as always Keeneland hotel rooms are in high demand. As a result room rates have .increased. The per/night rate is $189.00 plus tax, use your AAA, AARP or Military ID to try and get a reduced rate. NOTEdue to the demand this year the release date for our block of rooms is September 12, 2019. Remember this date and reserve your room as soon as possible. As of this date the hotel is already sold out so no rooms will be available if you do not reserve with the TKE Alumni block. So if you plan to stay at the Teke Hotel call now to reserve your room, 859-223-0880. Do I need to stress the need to reserve ASAP a few more times.
Plans for Homecoming this year are for the most part the same as preceding years except for Thursday and Friday nights.
Thursday October 10th/Friday October 11th evening, Events for these nights are still in the planning stage. The Alumni social committee will be meeting with the Chapter Adviser and Chapter Social Chairman to potentially plan one or more joint events for Homecoming weekend. A joint event will introduce the new Gamma Sigma Chapter Tekes to their Alumni Group as well as letting them know that we Alumni are available to provide help and support to the chapter. A Thursday night event is possible so keep your schedules open for early arrival.
Friday, October 11th, Keeneland race goers meet in the Hotel lobby at 11:00am if you want to car pool. Arriving later, look for the TKE group to the far left of the Grand Stand as you face the Grand StandSaturday, October 20th. 9:30 am: Gamma Sigma Alumni Association annual meeting in the Homewood Suites meeting room (AKA TKE Chapter Room). Make plans to attend not only for the business part but for your input as to other things you would like your TKE Alumni Chapter to be doing as well as hear an update on what is new with the Gamma Sigma Teke Chapter. As of this date game time is unknown. After the meeting for those interested we can take a walk around campus as it is still changing. Lunch or dinner will depend on game time and will be provided in the TKE Chapter Room. For those not going to the game we can watch it in the hotel lobby or venture over to Dave & Lisa’s house, group’ choice. No matter where we watch the game or who goes to the game we will have nightcaps in the Teke Chapter Room.
