The jumbotrons and closed circuit CMUTV feed are awesome! Consider ourselves fortunate over the recent years for this coverage.
The real quesiton.. how do we get to the point where we combine that coverage with the awesome level of competition - both # of orgs, # of races as well as sentiments of better performing buggies (so I've seen here)- that was experienced in the 80's-early 90's? New race every 8mins from 8:00 clear through noon with psych songs, replays, profile vids, etc. That would make for an amazing raceday...perhaps one that would attract more attention for local residents, and returning alumni.
Unless the University realizes the benefits the Greek organizations have (or had??) to campus life and we see some revival of the Fraternities, I think you get what Mr. Estes suggested from his perch after SDC's runaway victory - a few well funded student orgs that share all the athletic talent on campus, fewer and fewer races, and eventual obscurity of a once great tradition.
Encourage your organization to compete, help them get there, and ask for help. Perhaps more should watch Tom Wood's 'History of Buggy' talks to see what once was.
