2015 Volleyball Alumni Homecoming weekend Oct. 16-18

Posted: October 8, 2015

We are excited to welcome all Briercrest Men’s and Women’s Volleyball Alum back to campus again this year on October 16th-18th! The current teams will be hosting the SAIT Trojans to kick off the 2015-16 ACAC regular season, and the weekend will start with our Briercrest women taking on the SAIT Trojans at 6 PM Sask time on Friday October 16th for their Home Opener! The men’s Home Opener will follow immediately after the conclusion of the women’s match.

There will be no charge for the weekend’s events. Alumni will be required to arrange their own accommodations for the weekend and also plan for most of their own meals (other than the ones mentioned in the schedule below). The Pilgrim Inn in Caronport is offering a special deal for alumni who wish to book accommodations at the hotel for that weekend, so please contact Sandy Kafer (samaka_wika@hotmail.com) if you are interested in that.

We will require all alumni that are attending to RSVP so that we can plan for ordering food for refreshments and meals we will be providing and also so that we can plan for alumni introductions on the Friday night during the Home Opener. Women’s alumni please RSVP by emailing Nolan Weinmaster at nweinmaster@briercrest.ca by September 30th, and men’s alumni please email Nigel Mullan at nmullan@briercrest.ca to RSVP. Also, feel free to put your own alumni teams together and RSVP as a team (we will need to know all of the individuals on the team) or you can RSVP as an individual (for those alumni, we will be putting individuals into teams). We look forward to having as many of you here as possible and getting to reconnect with you all! Here are the rest of the details and schedule for the weekend:
