Now that everyone has had time to travel home and get back to reality, we wanted to thank everyone who came and made the Buggy Alumni Association’s kickoff weekend a really big success. It definitely felt more like carnival than homecoming seeing so many buggy folks around campus. We’ve only officially existed for a couple of months, and I think we’ve got a lot of momentum. Some stats to make the point:
- We’ve now got over 100 buggy alumni registered here on the website.
- 7 people have registered as dues-paying-members through the website, and many more did so this weekend in person. Those numbers are still being tallied
- Our history database already has information on 1,592 people and 196 buggies plus many data contributions that we haven’t had time to add to the database yet.
- The website has had over 1,600 visits from more than 800 people in just 2 weeks
So check out the pictures from Homecoming and let us know in the forums what you’d like to see happen at Carnival. We can’t wait to see everyone back again.
