Bye Bye Family

6 Oct

I recently attended many of the events for UW 2012 Family Weekend.There was a estimated that 440 total people registered for family weekend. I feel as every event was well planned and success in  its own way. Plans for 2013 Family Weekend are already being made.


There were many events planned for this weekend a Family Photo Scavenger Hunt,5K Fun Run/Walk and Registration,UW President’s Brunch,Cowboy Parents Meet & Greet. My family and I made it to most of the events but not all.

Family Photo Scavenger Hunt was fun all day experience for whoever wanted to enjoy. The hunt took us to landmarks here in Laramie such as Ivinson Mansion,Laramie Plains Museum,and American Heritage Center. The idea was to use the clue sheet given to locate landmarks and have your family take a photo beside the landmark.The first family with all the landmarks photo wins!

The Cowboy Parents Meet & Greet was time for all of parents and students to meet one another. Most of the events were meant for you to meet other cowboy families and make connections.

The Silent Auction and Bbq this was my family favorite event of course. There was homemade bbq and booths were set up for bidding.We listened to live music from the Western Thunder Marching Band and my family got to take pictures with Pistol Pete.  Different items were up for auction example season UW basketball tickets,parking passes for students(I bid on this item),and many other cool items.

UW President’s Brunch was a nice ending to an amazing weekend. There was a photographer there getting shots of everyone and there parents.Nice lunch was served  to us family style. UW President Tom Buchanan give a wonderful speech thanking the parents and sponsors for the weekend.

Until Next Year

Announced at end of the weekend that the dates for Family Weekend 2013 will be set once 2013-14 football schedule is finalized.They will post the fall dates as soon as possible on the uw family website.
