Vermont or Bust November 10, 2007Posted by smooregasbord in Travel.
Sorry for the lack of posts over the past week, but I’ve been out of town…partly for work, partly for fun.
Last weekend, we went to South Carolina for Wofford‘s Homecoming. It was a lot of fun and a great opportunity for us to see old friends! However, it was a big bust in the fact that Wofford lost to Georgia Southern (38-35). It was a great game and it felt more like I was watching tennis than football. As soon as we would score, they would score within a couple of minutes. The ball traveled so much you could hardly keep up with it. There were over 1000 yards of offense…I don’t know what that’s all about, but Casey says it’s indicative of a fast moving game. Wofford has been having a great season and I’ve never seen the stadium so full. Even with the loss last weekend, we were still ranked #1 in the Southern Conference. We’re holding out for a win today against UTC to ensure our spot in the playoffs. GO TERRIERS!
What’s with the reference to Vermont, you ask? Well, on the Saturday night of Homecoming weekend, Wofford hosts the annual Terrier Ball. The Terrier Ball is a way to raise money for the Terrier Club which supports our athletes. There’s an open bar, tons of food, music, and a live and silent auction. It’s basically shopping for a cause. We put a bid on several items and won. I got a great black leather tote embroidered with the Wofford “W” and a cute office desk set. The big win for us was a weekend stay at the Inn at Manchester in Manchester, Vermont. Casey and I have never been to Vermont, but have always wanted to go. The Inn is stunning and is owned and operated by Wofford Alum. We have until November 2009 to use the gift certificate, so now it’s just a matter of deciding when we want to go.
