Delaware Family Picnic!

If you are a WVU sports fan and live within driving distance of Wilmington, Delaware, the place to be on Saturday, July 13 from 2-7 PM will be the WVU Family Picnic!

The picnic is sponsored by the Delaware Chapter of the WVU Alumni Association, and is held at a 150 acre estate and mansion just north of Wilmington, Delaware. It is a very impressive venue! You can get all the picnic details and driving directions by visiting our website, or you can call our picnic chairmen Bob and DJ Gibson at (302) 478-3646.

A plethora of Mountaineer sports celebrities will be on hand to join us, including Gary McPherson of the Mountaineer Athletic Club, who will meet and greet all Mountaineer fans and give us all the athletic scoop from Morgantown!

Also joining us will be a star-studded lineup of former WVU football players from all eras!

From the late 1950's and early '60's, defensive end Dick Struck and fullback Bob Benke will be at the picnic. Both played for Pappy Lewis and Gene Corum.

From the 1988 Fiesta Bowl team that met Notre Dame for the National Championship, we have offensive lineman Bryan Hendricks!

From the 1993 Sugar Bowl team, you'll get to meet offensive lineman Alonzo Washington!

From the mid-1990's, defensive tackle Henry Slay will be joining us!

And from the late 90's, come meet linebacker K.C. Schiller, defensive back David Lightcap and kicking specialist Jon Ohliger.

We will be raffling off some autographed WVU collectibles, and will have plenty of other fun things to do and surprises along the way.

Spend an enjoyable day of Mountaineer fellowship in Delaware on July 13. For details, visit our website, or contact picnic chairmen Bob and DJ Gibson at (302) 478-3646.
