"DUDY GRAS" 2006

We are organizing an event scheduled for February 10 2006, the year's Left Field Lounge move-in-day. We are calling it "Dudy Gras" and want you and your friends to participate. We think it can become an annual event and eventually become a "kickoff " event for a Mardi Gras type weekend in Starkville. There is no cost to participate and we will have an after set up party.

Anticipated activities:

  • Arrive at Ricks Café parking lot to line up "contraptions" at 3 pm on Friday February 10, 2006.
  • Parade of contraptions down Main Street and University Drive 4 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
  • Continue on to set up in LFL.
  • Party at Ricks Café with entertainment and food from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
  • The route will be West on 82 out of Ricks, South on Jackson St. then East on Main/University.

    We want to make this a yearly event that will be fun for everyone. Traditions are important to MSU, and LFL is one of the best ones we have. We want to build on it and make it something special for years to come. We have already gotten approval from the city and MSU officials. We are trying to get the diamond girls and pom squad to participate and will have a Grand Marshall. Please let us know if you will participate in "Dudy Gras".

    Attached is a release form that all participants must sign before the event. Please mail back to the below address on or before February 6, 2006. Thank you.
