Thanks for the Olympics!!!

Hopefully everyone has recovered from the IUJ Olympics by now. We would like to take a moment to thank everyone who participated. It was long, it had ups & it had downs, we laughed & we cried, we played & we argued, we ate BBQ & we drank ocha… but in the end we hope everyone had a great time, and made some terrific memories in the process.

First and foremost, we would like to send our warmest thanks to President Sugihara on behalf of all Students for funding the Sunday afternoon Barbeque. His generosity allowed all us 150 tired and hungry Olympic participants to refuel ourselves for the upcoming difficult final weeks of exams & term projects. To everyone, if you see President Sugihara this week, be sure to thank him!

Next, we have a few other items to take care of in order to properly conclude the Olympics for this year. We have printed certificates for all of the winners in each individual event and group sport, which we would like to give out informally this weekend. We will also announce the overall winners.

Please come to CNP on Saturday at 9pm for an informal ceremony and some refreshments. Because we are focusing our budget on Campus Improvement and the Graduation Party, this one will have to be BYOB (as in Bring your own… Beer, Booze, or other Beverages). But we’ll also be handing out drinks and other prizes to the event winners, and to prove that everyone is a winner, we'll even hand some prizes out to some lucky participants who may not have won but who’s sportsmanship and/or leadership shone through in the Olympics.

It will also be a great chance to gather your team one last time for photos and some good times after all your hard work.

Hope to see you all there!!!


P.S. We hope you will share any pictures you may have in the public folder under:
