2015 Basketball Alumni Home Opener weekend Oct. 30-31

Posted: October 21, 2015

Greetings Briercrest Basketball Nation!

We are excited to inform you of our upcoming Home Opener/Basketball Alumni weekend on October 30-31. Not only will this be the opportunity for our basketball teams to bust out of the gates after two months of pre-season preparation, but we would also like to invite basketball alumni back to celebrate this exciting weekend with us. Coupled with our season opener against Medicine Hat is a full slate of volleyball matches as well.

Friday night begins with Women’s Volleyball at 6 p.m. followed by Men’s Volleyball at 8 p.m. During these matches, there will be a Welcome Reception for all basketball alumni up in the Athletic Lounge from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. Come up for a warm welcome, some snacks, a chance to connect with old and new friends as well an opportunity to enjoy a good view of the volleyball matches.

On Saturday morning, we invite you to join our teams for a full brunch at 11:30 a.m. in the Den (below the cafeteria). More volleyball action occurs at 1:00 and 3:00 p.m. followed by our exciting basketball home openers at 6:00 (W) and 8:00 p.m. (M). After our games Saturday night, the gym will be open to any alumni who have a hankering to relive their glory days or maybe create some new memories on the court. If that is of interest to you, bring along your shoes and some gear and get ready to sweat.

For Sunday morning, you are welcome to join us in worship at one of our two community churches (Caronport Community Church in the Edward’s Chapel at 10:30 a.m. or The Gathering in The Landing at 10:45 a.m.). That is the basic outline of the weekend but I’m sure there will be a lot of delightful improvising of plans as you connect with old friends.

Please RSVP by October 23rd so we can be prepared to properly welcome you back to this great campus.
