BLUEBONNET WINE TOUR

Have you ever had interest in a wine tour but are not excited about the driving while sampling many of the states fine wines? One of our members is exploring a bus tour through the Bluebonnet Wine trail.

Living in central Texas many have explored the wineries in the hill country but have you ever ventured east? This would be an overnight, weekend excursion on a chartered bus. The goal would also be to have dinner at Messina Hof on Saturday evening before settling down for the evening. If this interest you, please feel free to drop us a note so we could begin receiving some feedback as we are in the infancy stages of planning. In addition, if you would like to assist in planning such an excursion or have some experience please let us know. Ideally this would be a May or early June trip is the pieces fall into place.

SILVER TAPS SURVEY ASSISTANCE

The University Traditions Council is currently attempting to detail the history of SILVER TAPS since its inception in 1898 honoring late college president Lawrence Sullivan Ross to present day. However, because of its solemn purpose and mystique, very little has been recorded about the history of this event and information is especially scarce from 1920-1950. Brendon Gould, member of the Traditions Council is attempting to interview Former Students who attended AMC during these years in order to collect firsthand accounts of the conduct of Silver Taps, as well as document any major changes or events that may have occurred. They are particularly interested in determining if Silver Taps was played for students who were killed overseas during World War II and Korea. If you are a member of a class during this time frame, please contact Brandon @ brendan.gould1@gmail.com

SEC GOLF TOURNAMENT

Time is running out so get registered. You can sign up an entire team or as an individual and get paired up on the day of the event.

The date and location have been set for the Annual SEC Golf Tournament. This is a great event to come out and enjoy, while earning money for scholarships. Each school receives funds based on the number of teams that participate. Save the date, Sunday 24 April as we will tee it up at Shadow Glen in Manor with a shotgun start at 1PM. Sponsorship’s are available if you are interested in promoting your business. Registration will be open soon so keep an eye out. Feel free to sign up as a team or an individual and you will be paired with others from the same university. We are attempting for every club to have at least two teams and we are a little behind at the moment. It is not too late to sign up. If you do not like to golf but would like to be involved there are several volunteer opportunities on the day of the event, so come out and join us

Registration has been brisk so get your team signed up before the event is sold out. Direct link is here: https://austinsec.wufoo.com/forms/wfpjugz11zok58/

WEEKLY EVENTS

We work hard to offer a variety of events in hopes that your schedule will allow you to join as often as possible. We realize everyone is busy but it is always good to take a little time for friends and expand your network. We will continue our ‘THURSDAY’ event schedule, but keep your eyes open for a few twist as we move through the year.

This week we will have our popular Family Night at Double Dave’s. Please make plans to join us at either the Round Rock or Cedar Park location. iI you know of any locally owned Aggie establishments, please be sure to pass them along as we look to support local, particularly Aggie business’.
