Old Bro News & Notes - December 2016

Christmas and New Year's BEST WISHES to all you Old Bro's out there, I certainly hope that your holidays are filled with love, laughter, well aged scotch whiskey, and memorable times with your families and friends.  Another year in the history books, and looking forward to 2017 .....

First, a couple of scheduling items .... the Annual Meeting of EpSig has been rescheduled to Saturday, January 28, 2017 at the Chapter house.  Read all about it HERE, please don't forget to RSVP and/or send in your Proxy Vote so that your voice will be heard !!  See you there ....

Another upcoming event to plan for is the SECOND Annual Alumni Golf Tournament, here's the note from the High Rho at the active chapter .....

Dear EpSig Brothers:

I hope you are all having a great holiday season so far.  As newly elected High Rho, the active brothers of Lambda Chi Alpha - Epsilon Sigma and I are proud to be hosting the 2nd Annual Alumni Golf Tournament on February 4th, 2017 at Heroes Golf Course.  While last year was a great time with a solid turnout, we're looking to make this year's event bigger and better. We already have a large number of actives committed and excited to going, and hope to see as many alumni there as possible.  If you are interested in attending, please fill out this brief google form. If you have any questions, feel free to contact myself or one of the other chairs of the event for more information.

in ZAX,

Dom Pletcher, Brother High Alpha, (619) 990-6033,
Mike Chen, Chairman of the Alumni Golf Tournament & Brother High Tau, (832) 285-6354,
Kyle Zeman, Brother High Rho, (312) 315-6778,

And definitely don't forget to check out your UNDEFEATED Bruin ballers at Pauley Pavilion this season, you may run into an Old Bro or two there as well.  The Bruins look primed for a great Pac 12 season and a deep run into March Madness, it is absolutely great to see UCLA hoops doing well again.
OBN is always happy to see it when Old Bro's get together, like this recent lunch in Westwood .....

Steve Bay & Dave Adelman were also there but did a Dine & Dash before the photo

Willy (left) and Jim are true workout
warriors, and an inspiration to the
entire Old Bro Nation ... keep it up!
Also happy to see Old Bro's getting down and dirty together (whoa, it's not what you think) .... check out the following .....

Hey Mike,

Jim Botko and I, Willy Reese, wanted to send you these pics of the two of us, who raced in the 2016 Spartan Sprint Obstacle Course at Castaic Lake this morning.  5 miles and 22 obstacles later, we were all smiles and feeling pretty good.  Wanted to pass on this fun brotherhood.  Jim and I raced in 3 triathlons together too, including Malibu Olympic Triathlon and Irwindale Trick or Tri.  Jim and I both made the podium in our age group too. Thanks for keeping all the bros plugged into life together.


Again, all the best to you and yours as we close the curtain on 2016.  Old Bro Nation continues to be strong going into another year, but only with all of your support and sharing. 

As usual, if anyone has contact info about an Old Bro who is NOT currently on the roster, send it in and I'll get them hooked up.  Likewise, if YOUR info ever changes, drop me a note and I'll update that for everyone as well.

OBN also loves to see any photos, either old throwback pix from back in the day or selfies from what you are up to now, send them in with a note and I'll publish them for all to enjoy.
