Come to the Titan Winter Blast (January 25)

Postby Rogobob77 » Mon Jan 06, 2020 9:18 pm

I posted some information on the Titan Winter Blast earlier in a thread on MBB game promotions, but as we approach the event date thought it deserved its own thread. Festivities will take place on January 25, 2020, in the Student Fitness Center, 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The Titan game versus UIC follows with the tip-off taking place at 1:00 p.m.

This year is going to be a cold one, but we've got the cure to those winter blues with our signature winter celebration, the Titan Winter Blast! We’re turning up the heat with many new event features that are sure to warm you up inside and out. Come to campus and cozy up over some chili, food, beverages, and Titan comradery. Specific activities include:

- The wildly popular Chili Cook-off
- Casual buffet featuring ‪National Coney Island‬ coney dogs
- Open bar, featuring craft beer from Eastern Market Brewing Co.
- Indoor s’mores stations
- Hot cocoa and candy bar
- Fowling
- Live music from internationally known, alumni led, blues band Luther “Badman” Keith
- Kids winter and Titan inspired crafts
- Cornhole, Snowman Can Toss, and Giant Jenga Charades
- Personalized Detroit Mercy caricatures

After the tailgate make your way over to Calihan to cheer our Titan Men’s basketball team to victory over UIC. Cook-off winner announced just after half-time.

This will be a very special game, as the Titans will be honoring 15 Titan greats inducted into the Detroit Mercy Athletic Department's 2020 Hall-Of-Fame. Show your support for the Titans who made the cut: ... class.aspx. Willie Green will also have his jersey retired on that date.

Student and alumni chili chef teams include:

- Anime Club
- Chemistry Club
- Dental Alumni Board / American Student Dental Association
- Student Success Center/Learning Center
- Phi Kappa Theta
- Student Alumni Association
- Alpha Phi Omega
- Titan Club / Men’s Soccer / Men’s Lacrosse

Heard today from a contact in Alumni Relations that we currently have 350 people registered for the Titan Winter Blast which exceeds where we stood at this time last year. They anticipate we will land in the 450-475 range for attendance for this event, preliminary to the UIC game. With the Saturday afternoon time slot and other activities that day (jersey retirements, Hall of Fame inductions) looks like we may have a decent crowd for the MBB game against the Flames.
