Elections all around & Wigle Barrel Roll THIS FRIDAY

Election season is upon us and Sweepstakes is no exception. This Monday they held elections for the new team of Chairman, Assistant Chairman, and Safety Chairman. It was a relatively quick affair with some good discussion, and here are the results:

  • Assistant Chairwoman: Elyce Miligan – CIA/Atlas – Co-Founder of the Atlas project that’s been running as a sub group of CIA
  • Safety Chairman: Jasio Santillan – Apex – Chairman and builder over the last couple years
  • Chairwoman: Camilla Xu – SDC – Head Mechanic for last Raceday

All in all, a very promising group with a lot of expertise. We can’t wait to see what these guys are able to do next year!

UPDATE: BARREL ROLL WALK HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER. The event at the barrel house is still scheduled, but we will not be walking with a buggy.

Just like last year, the BAA will be participating in the Wigle Whiskey Barrel Roll. Those who joined us had a blast and we encourage any students and local alums to join us as we strap a whiskey Barrel to a buggy and walk it through the strip. The event at the Barrel House is $20 if you are over 21, and they will have drinks available to anyone underage. There will be live music, and some awesome contraptions that move the barrels – last year, Penn Brewery was also pushing a keg and pouring cups en-route.

Here are the specifics:

  • May 5th (This Friday) at 5pm
  • Starting from Wigle’s Distillery – 2401 Smallman St, Pittsburgh, PA 15222
  • ~ 1 mile walk to the Barrel House – 1055 Spring Garden Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15212
  • The Walk is Free, the Barrel House event is $20

And remember, our elections are still going on, so if you haven’t yet –
