SIG CUP 014
Auguste 1-2, 2014: Glendarin Hills Golf Club, Angola, IN
The ninth annual Sig Cup was another very successful gathering of Brotherhood and friendly competition between the Kappa Sigs and Alpha Sigs. Unfortunately, we did not retain the Cup. The Kappa Sigs were victorious winning the Cup with a 26 to 20 hard fought victory. To date, the Kappa Sigs have won the cup six times to the Alpha Sigs, 3. However, more importantly, the Sig Cup has raised over $35,000 from the generous contributions of the Cup participants over the last 9 years.
There are four scholarships awarded annually with two from each Fraternity. Each recipient receives a scholarship of $1,000. The recipient must meet a criteria which includes a GPA of 2.5, good standing in the Fraternity and involved in community service.
The scholarships were awarded to Brandon Snell and Kyle Clark at the annual Homecoming dinner. Congratulations to both of these fine Brothers.

SIG CUP 2013
Alumni representing both Alpha Sigma Phi and Kappa Sigma gathered for the eighth annual Sig Cup Golf Challenge held at the Glendarin Hills Golf Club on August 2 - 3, 2013. It was another fun filled weekend with the Alpha Sigma Phi team winning the trophy and "bragging rights" through August 2014. The Alpha Sigs have won the cup three of the last five years.
The match play scramble event has grown in the number of participants every year. Ther Friday afternoon round was held in conjuction with Trine University’s Annual “Alumni and Friends Scholarship Golf Outing” played at Trine’s Zollner Golf Course. At the conclusion of day one’s 4-man scramble, the Alpha Sigs held a 9 ½ to 5 ½ advantage. The Alpha Sigs were led by the team of Jeff Jackson (#811), Steve Hart (#784), Rick Linard (#773), Tim Taylor (#782) and the team of Larry Thomas (#695), Jim Smoots (#711), Terry West (#715) and Brian Stebleton (#643) where each team took 2 ½ out of 3 possible points.
On Saturday, the Apha Sigs began the day with a commanding lead. Teams are chosed based on handicaps for the Saturday format. A team consists of two Alpha Sigs matched against two Kappa Sigs, according to respective handicaps. The format is a 2-man best ball scramble. A team score is based on one point for the winner of the front nine holes, one point for winner of the back nine and one point for overall win.
The Saturday competition was held at Glendarin Golf Club. The Alpha Sigs dominated the 2-man scramble, by taking 23 out of 30 possible points. Ther Alpha Sigs were led by the three teams of Jim Smoots (#711), Jeff Sager (#780); Rick Linard (#773), Dick Bible (#791) and Wes Stinson (#1118), Brina Stebleton (#643). They won all three possible points. As usually the fellowship and competition were terrific and were something that Brothers from both houses look forward to annually.
This year’s Sig Cup raised $6,000 for scholarships for two very deserving undergraduates from each house.
