2015 Sig Cup's 10th Anniversary

Posted by Steve LaHood August 21st, 2015


Mike Darch and Mitch Rhoads‏ enjoying the day

 This was the 10th anniversary of the Sig Cup which is an alumni scholarship golf fundraiser between the Kappa Sigs and Alpha Sigs.  Back in the day (1967-1970) these two fraternities were located adjacent to each other on fraternity row.  The competition was very fierce between the two houses.  John Goudy, Alpha Sig, and I were friends while attending Trine and remain friends today.  We thought of this idea to get alumni back to the university and fraternity in a friendly competition centered around golf and fund raising.  The first year we both had four brothers.


Quigley, Miller and Fogt ready for some action


This year the Kappa Sigs had 32 brothers participate and 35 brothers make a contribution to the scholarship fund. In past years we awarded two $1000.00 scholarships to two brothers in each house.

This year we will award four $1000.00 scholarships in each house.  The scholarships are awarded based on GPA, Community Service, and good standing with both the National and Local chapter.  The Sig Cup is played over two day period tied in with the university Alumni and Friends Scholarship outing the first Friday in August.  We have raised over $40,000 to date but more importantly getting alumni brothers back to the campus is very special.

The shed was totally cleaned out and reorganized.
Both front and rear decks were power washed.
Patio out back cleaned and under deck cleared out.
Spidels crew worked on railing in front, the stone pillar repaired, worked on some light issues, back door repaired, library room doors worked on.

There were other miscellaneous things such as lite bulbs, water faucets, clean out of all drains and etc.







First GOLD STAR awards to Mike Brown, and Sandy Hubbell (chief cook and master of cleaning).  Ron Thomas and Roy Charleswood were there to assist on several occasions as well.  Actives in the house for summer for Nate, Eric, Nick, Jason, Alvaro, Zack, Stephan, and Sam. These guys all had internships, working full time so they were not always available but did help out when could.

Again thanks to these folks for all their time and efforts.

Note: disappointing that more alumni did not show up to help!!

Alumni the actives would sure like to see more of you stop by.
Whether it be for a meeting or just to stop in it would be nice.

School starts this coming Monday 24th.  Busy with getting folks all moved in.  House will be full this fall.
