Homecoming 2016 has come and gone, and what a weekend it was indeed! The undergrads had a fabulous time welcoming Kappa brethren young and old back to 1 Webster Avenue.
The week began on Wednesday, with the annual New Member dance as the young men of Kappa opened for the Sheba dance group. The boys were extremely excited for their performance, and, by all accounts, "crushed it". Many thanks to Sydney Wijngaarde '17, the dance captain, for choreographing and coordinating the dance.

Saturday morning was the culminating experience: a wonderful barbecue put on by the undergraduate brothers before the Dartmouth vs. Harvard football game at 1:30pm. From '67 to '17 and many years in between, brothers of all ages gathered at the house for some barbecue and good conversation. Kevin Kim '15, honorary grillmaster, has the undergrads' thanks for owning the grill during this event.

We can't thank everyone enough for their contributions to this fine establishment and for continuing to visit and impart wisdom to the undergraduates as we navigate our Dartmouth and Tri-Kap experiences. A special thanks to Al Forbes '82 who stayed at the lodge for the entire weekend and was generous enough to complete a Black Book session with a variety of brothers and new members. That sort of genuity is a hallmark of the Tri-Kap brotherhood, and we thank Al for embodying that this weekend.
As always, if you are in the area, please do reach out and stop by.
Oh yes--happy late halloween everyone!
