The thing that really caught my eye on the bucky link was the remote events around the country. I saw events in Philly, Pittsburgh, B-more, Boston, etc. They had an event in CT somewhere today. I would think that we could make things like that happen too. I go to a watch party for Lehigh-Lafayette most years, and it’s very well attended – set up by a local alum chapter (Triangle). But it’s the only thing I’m aware of. The bucky events appear to have coaches, admin, etc. involved and engaged.
I don’t know if something like that would ever make it down here to NC, but I’m sure there would be plenty of interest in Philly, NY, etc. I haven’t yet found the right opportunity to move back to PA, to be able to attend more events at LU.
