For 25 years in a row (1991-2016) Brothers from the pledge class of Spring of 1982, Mike (Ed) Pedue #961, Eric (E.B.) Brown #958, Mike (Ed) Crull #969 and Tom Christen #963 have gotten together to play golf. Over the years Brothers Mike (Ed) Bovee #960, Paul Finnell #962 and Jack Robertson #927 joined in on the reunions. (Do you get the feeling it is easier if everyone has the some nick name after a few beers?)

We look forward to their rendezvous at the Dedication of the Old Gal
Provide a Gift to be Locked in the ΑΣΦ TIME CAPSULE.
ALL Brothers Are Invited To Propose A Gift To The Future To Be Place In The Time Capsule!
During Homecoming 2016's Dedication of the New Old Gal, a Time Capsule will be mounted inside a wall of the Old Gal. It will be a metal box 3 ½ inches deep, 14 inches wide and 36 inches high. Its location between wall studs will be marked with a plaque indicating it is not to be opened until the Chapter House is mortgage fee.
The Time Capsule is expected to have three - 14 inch wide X 12 inch high stacked compartments, 3 1/2 inches in depth. We think one (1) compartment will be for "physical items" like PB’s dog collar or the beer tap from the Maumee St party room and two compartments for paper documents like pictures, news paper articles, etc. As Tri-State used to say, all of this is “TBD” until we know more about what you would like to send into the future.
All Time Capsule Gifts should be focused on 1) The Beta Omicron Chapter and its Brothers, and then, 2) Trine (Tri-State) University and 3) the Angola Area.
The "Gifter" is to make sure their gift is explained well enough that someone in the future will understand what it is. That is: a picture should have a note like, "Brothers XX#, XY#, & XV# in 1972 filling water balloons for campus war with GDIs." or..."an electronic video of Brothers installing windows in 1987 at the Maumee House on USB port drive, XYZ format" Or... "a party favor from October 2015 110 S. Darling St Old Gal Inauguration." You may place pictures in an envelope and put the info on the envelope if you wish.
Please contact the email address below if you need help with pen numbers or other info. Do not let perfection get in the way of providing something fun or of significance to our history.
There will be two ways to get your gifts to us: One, you can bring it to Homecoming (preferred!) Two, you can send it to us. Details on each of those options will be provided after August 21st as we inform "Gifters" we in fact have space for their item in the Time Capsule. (We don't want to be shipping things twice.)
PLEASE propose a Time Capsule Gift by providing in an email to [email protected] with the following:
1) Your name , pen number and phone number
2) Describe the Gift you are providing, why you are providing it, its significance, etc)
3) Paper items, let us know: Is there more than one page? If so, how many pages is it? Is it going to be in a envelop or is it bound? If bound, how?
4) Physical items: provide its dimensions. (a picture would be nice)
5) Delivery: Do you plan to bring it to Homecoming --or do you plan to mail it?
To provide time for organizing the Gifts , communication , mailing, etc,
PLEASE Propose your Time Capsule Gift before Sunday, August 21st.
We hope we can completely fill this Time Capsule box. Your help with creative Gifts to the future will be appreciated.
