    Spring Football Game not VEISHEA Weekend

    I'm slow and just put this together.

    Spring Game is April 14th.
    Traditional VEISHEA Saturday is April 21st.

    I had enjoyed the two being the same weekend under Rhoads' direction.

    Is that the 2nd (last weekend) of VEISHEA? Hasn't the Spring Game usually been the weekend before the big party weekend?

    Re: Spring Football Game not VEISHEA Weekend

    I was disappointed in this fact as well. I have a wedding at 5 on the 14th about 2 hrs from Ames. Was thinking I could even make it if the game was at something like noon, but at 2:30, I probably won't make it.

    This is AWESOME!!! For me at least. I won't be in Ames for VEISHEA weekend, but this helps make up for it.

    There is really only one weekend. It starts on Monday and ends on Sunday. And no, the spring game has been the weekend of not before the last three years.

    Re: Spring Football Game not VEISHEA Weekend

    I like VEISHEA and the Spring Game being together. They're both things I like to attend and generally would prefer they be the same weekend.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I guess I just remember from my earlier college years when I was able to make the Spring Game, that it was not on VEISHEA weekend.

    Not much, really. It's mostly just a couple of parties for students. Usually pretty calm atmosphere...............I'm trying to put a jimlad here but my computer here at work won't let me.
