Due to the increase in Covid-19 cases, the Board of Directors unanimously voted to postpone the Northern Virginia and Richmond watch parties. They will continue to monitor health information and announce a new date at a time when it is safe to do so.
Most of us have noticed the challenge we’ve had over the years in finding a fall weekend that is convenient for everyone to attend, or even most of us to attend.
-Game weekends are too expensive.
-I have season tickets and can’t make it back to a non-game weekend too.
-I can’t get local hotel reservations.
-I have a tailgate spot, and can’t also make it to a larger event.
-Family responsibilities make it difficult to travel to Blacksburg on a weekend.
-I am not sure I would no anyone at a large event and hang out with the brothers who were there when I was.
So, this year, the Alumni Chapter Board is trying something different. As a pilot, we are sponsoring two Watch Parties:
Date: Saturday, September 18
Time: Varies by location
Locations: Northern Virginia and Richmond
- In Richmond, we are confirming details to gather at Hardywood Westcreek, 820 Sanctuary Trail Drive. Hardywood has released Fightin’ Hokies Lager and specializes in family friendly events for everyone. They have hosted events for Mother’s Day, and Santa Claus, and their Cinema by the Creek and Bricks4Kids invites children to build with Lego and Duplo blocks.
Details of these events are being finalized, so watch this space for more information in the coming weeks. Also keep an eye on your email inbox. A registration form will be available as soon as details are confirmed.
