Well there's been some talk, but it's finally here...introducing the AK-OLDIES.
It's a UA Alumni spirit group, which has a mission of:
1. Having fun
2. Supporting the Zips
If it ever stops being fun...I'm out!
For a $12 fee, you get an AK-OLDIES t shirt with your membership...optional hats are $10.
We don't have any annual fees at this point...don't know if we ever will. We just want to get this thing going.
Since we're so close to football season, we'd like to distribute the shirts and hats at the first Rubber Bowl game to save postage. If you just can't wait, which I totally understand, just e-mail us and we'll make arrangements.
There is only a slight mark up to pay for the Web site..postage if needed and to purchase more shirts and hats. Two of us alums have put up our own money to get it off the ground. Nobody is making anything off of this...strictly non-profit.
We are coordinating with the Alumni Asso.
We want to have tailgate parties off the bat...who know where the future will take us.
Anyone who wishes to help is welcome.
A Web site has been put together, and it looks rather good if I do say so myself.
