Best Remembrance -
Mark Serstock at National headquarters.
To make it simple.
One the pledge trip to Nationals,
Mark was so wasted that while the rest of the pledges toured the building, he went into Executive Director George Spazyk's Office
and lay down on the big leather couch ,
Needless to say the urge to purge overcame Mark and he went into George's private bathroom and Yacked!
Honorable Mention to the story that when the house
was about to be shut down by Nationals,
that the ELC -the Education and Leadership Correspondent
from National Headquarters went to stay in a hotel room
because he was too afraid to stay at the house.
Quote of the Weekend -
"I Lied On Betty?? Oh.., I Forgot That Rule!" Mark Tyrrell (Purge Tyrrell!)
- Brothers Who Should Be Here -
There are several brothers who miss the party every year for reasons that are either legitimate or because they are WEEPS.
Next Year Chop Block Party Five Is MANDATORY!
The following Brothers will be given special attention this next year to get them to Chop Block Party Five:
Marty Zobel - a special Z-force was established to bring him to the party.
John Speybroeck - doesn't want to come - we have to change his mind.
Jon Vollmer - always has a convenient excuse.
Jon Syndergaard - always says he is coming but doesn't show up (Just like at Valpo).
Others too numerous to mention -
JUST REMEMBER NEXT YEAR'S THEME IS :
CHOP BLOCK PARTY FIVE IS MANDATORY!
- Spread The Wealth - We will make an effort to expand the mailing list back to at least Iota Sigma 400. Including Grand High Alpha Marty Smith and those wild 70's guys who always told us we didn't know how to party!
Motion To Close - Tom Kucklick
Second - Rob Melin
