    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?

    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.

    Makes me happy means I can actually go see it! Always have the Groove Drumline shows on Saturday of VEISHEA so now I can go and other fanatics can come to our shows! Haha

    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.

    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.

    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.

    An excuse to act like I'm 21 again in the middle of Ames, IA without getting in trouble.
