Requesting Feedback on Alumni vs Alumni Basketball Game Idea

Dear Alumni,

The Crooms AoIT Alumni Association is assessing the possibility of hosting an "Alumni vs Alumni Basketball Game"/Tournament sometime during Winter Break and we would like your feedback on the idea. The game(s) would be hosted as a fund raiser for the Crooms AoIT Alumni Association Community Scholarship and the Crooms AoIT athletic programs. Mainly, we are interested in knowing if you would like to play, would you attend, is this something you would tell your fellow alumni about, etc?

While no details or dates have been decided yet, we are looking at hosting an "Alumni vs Alumni Basketball Game" sometime during the Winter Break at the Crooms AoIT Gym. The game would be ref’ed, announced, and, possibly coached by current Crooms AoIT students. We would like to play either full games or half games using high school regulations. We are looking at full teams that are all male and all female (unless we do not get enough female interest, then they would be mixed). Possibly, teams would be decided by class (perhaps Classes of ’05, ’06, and ’07 vs Classes of ’08, ’09, and ’10) or registrants could register their own team. If there is a ton of interest, we could break it down further and have multiple teams and set up a tournament schedule.

As a fund raiser, we would be asking players to "donate" a nominal fee to play ($5-$10); tickets to attend as an audience member would be nominal as well (perhaps $3). The concession stand would be open at cost, otherwise there might be a BBQ at extra cost.

Please let us know your thoughts and interest level in this idea – feedback will be presented anonymously to the Crooms AoIT Alumni Association Board and the Crooms AoIT Athletic Director.

Thank you in advance,

Crooms AoIT Alumni Association Management Team

Crooms AoIT Needs a Few Good...MENTORS!

Crooms AoIT is looking for some mentors for the 2010-2011 school year. Did you have a mentor? Wish you had someone older to help you out while in high school? Want to give back to a student making their way into the world? Now is your chance to get involved and make a difference in someone's life – and, perhaps, in yours as well!

The Crooms AoIT Mentor program requires a year commitment and a two hour training session. Beyond that, the meeting times are up to you and your student. You meet at your convenience to provide guidance, career exploration, academic assistance, and personal development. This is your opportunity to meet one-on-one with someone, talk about real issues, and make a real difference. Plus, being a mentor is a life enriching experience, enjoyable, and, even fun!

If you are interested in getting more information or getting involved in the mentoring program please call Cathy Alper at 407-320-5749 or email
