Volleyball and Frisbees will be available, and there are lots of grassy areas for games and fun.  Pullen Park also has a nicely equipped playground and a variety of rides (train, boats, carousel, etc.) for the kids.

The festivities will include as much barbeque, fried chicken, and fixin’s as you can eat.  A complete vegetarian buffet will also be provided by our Women in Computer Science (WiCS) organization.

The food will be served around 4:30 pm, followed by an awards presentation, a prize raffle, and the ever-hilarious “Pie-a-Professor” event.

Students are encouraged to visit the 2007-08 Awards page (link) no later than April 14th and submit nominations for the various awards which will be presented.

We hope you will join us for this annual tradition.
