Here’s a quick run-down of all the Buggy things happening this carnival. We can’t wait to see you at all these awesome events!
Our Twitter will be getting frequent updates through the weekend, so if you haven’t yet, be sure to give a follow so you know what’s going on when!
9am EST – Truck Auction Begins
A post with the link will go out Tuesday morning when the Truck Auction goes live. Don’t miss your chance to sit in the Lead Truck and watch the entire Race first-hand. We’ve been working with sweepstakes and we should have the best view yet this year!
8pm-9pm EST – WRCT 88.3 Pre-Raceday Broadcast
Join us on the airwaves as our local group of Buggy fanatics talks through this year’s events and our predictions for Raceday. We’ll be live on 88.3 FM and streaming at wrct.org
11:59pm EST – Truck Auction Ends
At midnight Wednesday, the Truck Auction will end. All winners will be contacted with their winning and further information that you will need on Raceday. Remember to check-in next to the Alumni tent on the day of your heat and fill out your Waivers! You will not be allowed in the Truck without one.
12pm-2pm – Buggy Showcase
The new format of the Design Competition known as Buggy Showcase will be happening in Weigand Gym. Come by and check out all the new buggies and chat with teams and other alumni. Be sure to put your vote in for the People’s Choice Design Award too!
12:30pm – Buggy Timing and Data Collection
At the Showcase Stage, Shafeeq Sinnamohideen will give you the low-down on how data is collected during our weekend rolls and what all those numbers mean!
8pm – BAA Social Hour
Join us at Hough’s (533 Greenfield Ave), the only bar in Pittsburgh with a Buggy on the wall. We’ve reserved the lower area by the tap wall so you won’t need to worry about it being too crowded. Remember though, the Greenfield Bridge is currently just a cliff, so you might have to go the long way around.
8am EST – Sweepstakes Prelim Races
12:30pm-1:30pm – BAA Luncheon
After the races, be sure to stop by our new luncheon location and relax with other alums while grabbing a bite to eat. We’re hoping for another awesome raceday, so we will be outside at the tennis court patio. Rain locaiton is Breed Hall in Margaret Morrison.
1:30pm-2:30 – BAA Panel
We have an awesome panel of people from across the buggy spectrum including several of our supporting groups lined up to answer your questions and share their experiences. Come by, ask them questions and listen to their stories.
9am EST – Sweepstakes Finals and Exhibition Races
Join us on the course and cheer on your favorite team, or listen via WRCT 88.3 or stream it live via cmuTV. Send us pictures of your remote-watch parties wherever you are in the world! We’ll be having our SigNu v. PiKA grudge match and possibly some additional ones.
12:15-1pm – History of Buggy Presentation highlighting the Class of 1991
Join Tom Wood for a presentation on the history of Buggy with a focus on the class of 1991 for their 25th Reunion Celebration. Open to all alumni and will be taking place in Steinberg Auditorium.
