Another Use For Duct Tape

BRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!! It is cold outside! I hope you are staying warm and enjoying ice skating, skiing or hockey during your spare time!

Our fundraising event, “Sweets for Sigma,”  went well and I was happy that NTID’s President Dr. Gerry Buckley was one of my customers. He was accompanied by his adorable granddaughters, one of them was wearing a tutu made by moi’. Dr. Buckley is so good at showing his support of student endeavors;  it makes sense he has a degree in social work, but his support goes above and beyond!

This past weekend I played in a Broomball tournament and it was so much fun! If you don’t know what Broomball is, it’s basically ice hockey, but you wear gym shoes instead of skates. It was so much fun that I played until 4:00 AM! I was excited because I was playing in the arena where the RIT men’s/women’s hockey teams compete: Ritter Arena! Did you know RIT is currently building a bigger and better hockey rink? Hockey is a huge deal around here.
I am still rehearsing for “Damn Yankees” and below is a picture of creative use of duct tape. There is a tradition here at RIT that duct tape is used in advertisements to promote campus happenings. The preponderance of brick walls probably has a lot to do with the selection of duct tape in creating notices!
