In honour of the annual running of the Drake
Relays, I will host a "Go Drake for a day" party on April 20,
2019. The fun will start around 18:00 (6pm) CDT.
YOU MUST WEAR BLUE!
Alumni should wear Drake clothing and bring any cool Drake (esp. Relays) paraphernalia you may have lying around. I have Drake stickers/tattoos so everyone can be "Drake For A Day".
You will also have a chance to visit my "Alumni Room" which pays tribute to Drake. It is definitely unique!
I will set out snacks, order some pizza and provide drinks too. As always, bring along other foods/beverages that may add a little 'style' to the party. If you are coming, please let me know ahead of time so I can order the right # of pizzas. In addition, please let me know what you like for toppings.
A special treat for children: Each year at Drake, Relays week kicks off with "street painting", where school organizations paint a street on campus highlighting the theme of that year's Relays. We will do the next best thing: Weather permitting, kids can show off their artistry on my sidewalk/driveway with chalk. Of course any artwork must have a Drake theme to it :)
If you are coming, please let me know so I can plan accordingly...the earlier the better. Invite other interested partiers, well-behaved children, Drake alumni, and/or any of the several million Drake wanna-bes. Park on the north side of 57th (opposite side of street).
The University also wants a photo of everyone basking in the glory of all things Drake...just like the group below, so bring your best smile too!
As always, I reserve the right to "flog" (or "cane" if you're from Eastern Hemisphere), folks involved in deep discussions on
Remember, it's a weekend...we're here to have fun!
YOU MUST WEAR BLUE....NO EXCEPTIONS
Drake Relays: You'll laugh...you'll cry...you'll hurl.
