Farewell Macadam's

We gathered one final time at Macadam's on Jan. 26 for the S.U.-North Carolina basketball game. We were sad ... and not just because the Orange lost, 93-83. It was also our last time at our favorite sports pub which is closing on Jan. 31. 

It was nice to see SU mom Sally Wentross (above right) join us for the game, decked out in a 'Cuse shirt. We'll have more hoops watch parties -- at another location -- in the coming weeks.

We wish Tallie and Ryan Steele and their staff at Macadam's well as they begin the next chapter of their lives.

A Night at the Symphony

The discounted ticket sale for our night at the Oregon Symphony on Feb. 7 continues. Come  hear Music Director Carlos Kalmar conduct the sonic spectacular that is Carmina Burana. Find details here. After the concert, we'll  go to a nearby pub for a night cap.

Are you a Who[vian]?

Fans of the British TV show Doctor Who can take their passion for the title character even further, thanks to Newhouse School professor Anthony Rotolo (above, right). He's offering a free, online class in January, Doctor Who in the Digital Age. An article about Rotolo and his class ran in the Washington Post and Vancouver Columbian in early November.

Sound like fun? You can learn more about Prof. Rotolo's course and register for it here.

Thanks for coming ... and bleeding!

Thanks to blood donors like Rob Kweit ('67) we collected two dozen units at What Color Do YOU Bleed?III on Nov.1.

Inside Macadam's that day, we joined up with a few NC State alums in the back room to watch the Orange take on the Wolfpack.

Check out how the day went here.  

A carving we did go

Several members of the Stumptown Orange brought their pumpkins, carving tools and imaginations to Migration Brewing on Oct. 27. They joined other ACC alumni for an evening of Jack O'Lantern-ing. Thanks to our own Erika Kirkland (second from left) who organized the event!

Good luck, John and Ellen!

Our second most ... uh, experienced Stumptowner (in terms of graduation year) has left us -- but only for the other side of the state. John Nesbitt ('58, Forestry) and his wife, Ellen, moved earlier in the fall to Wallowa County to be nearer to their daughter. We're going to miss Ellen and Stumpy John. Best of luck in your new "Enterprise," sir!
