    Veishea

    I haven't been to veishea since 1993 when I got drunk and past out on the Sigma Phi Epshelon's front lawn, with a stuffed porky the pig strapped to my waist.

    How's the event been holding up???

    Let's see...since 1993:

    Riot
    Stabbing
    Prohibition
    Riot
    Riot
    Cancellation
    Parade in the Snow
    And an original 2009 schedule that included dates in March (before it was pushed back two weeks to mid-April).

    Re: Veishea

    VEISHEA 2006 & 2007 were great.

    Last year the snow kind of mucked things up for everybody but the event has definitely turned around from VEISHEA's of the Late 90's-early 2000's.

    I was told it was the "sig ep" house. I was first introduced to whisky that night, so my appologies for the lapse in memory, I don't remember a whole lot of that night.

    May as well include the 80's in that bad era, at least the mid and late 80's.

    let's get the explanation out of the way. I was there in the late 80s and plenty of out of town non-ISU kids were plenty happy to ruin it for everyone else.

    Re: Veishea

    I still remember the second stabbing when a man came from Ft Dodge to Ames and committed the crime. Ruined a great weekend.

    My first experience was my senior year when I was there visiting the campus and the football team and got introduced to Jack and passed out at the Teke (sp?) house! Oh, those were the days!

    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams

    Re: Veishea

    Last year's veishea was horrible. Snow, cold, wristbands, etc...
    The two years before that were pretty good IMO. Good weather, good music, and good partying.

    Re: Veishea

    I was at Veisha in 1985-1988 and I remember one of those years a riot broke out and the crowd tried to rock cars and turn them over. They eventually turned one on it's side. Johnny Orr was called to come out with a megaphone to ask everyone to go home...it worked.
