CHESTERTOWN, MD -- With most of the Washington College student body still away from Chestertown enjoying Winter Break, the College's faculty and staff get the chance to show their spirit and take over as the "Cain Crazies" Tuesday during a special weekday afternoon Faculty & Staff Appreciation basketball double-header.
The Shorewomen and Shoremen basketball teams will host Centennial Conference rival Dickinson College Tuesday afternoon with tip-off times set for 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m., respectively. Some highlights of the afternoon:
Special Early Dismissal for College Employees
Planning to Attend the Games
Washington College President Mitchell Reiss has graciously offered a 2:45 p.m. dismissal for College employees who wish the attend the games.
Halftime Drawings, Including Bonus Day of
Faculty and staff should stop by the table near the gym entrance to register for the halftime drawings. Three College employees' names will be drawn during halftime of the women's game and two more during halftime of the men's game to win a bonus day of administrative leave. In addition, the following prizes will also be awarded to halftime winners during each game: "Goose Nation For Life" t-shirt and Washington College basketball decal prize pack, a copy of the book Athey's Field, Washington College home banner, a pair of Goose Nation shot glasses, and a large 32-ounce Washington College beer stein. You must be present at the time of the drawing to win.
Faculty & Staff Interdepartmental Spirit
Departments, offices, or other groups of faculty and staff are encouraged to register for the spirit contest at the table near the entrance to the gym. Put on your best Washington College gear, make signs and props, and get loud. Entries will be judged on creativity and overall spirit. A special "all-star" panel of judges (Chief of Staff Joe Holt, Associate Professor of Business Management Terry Scout, and Drama Department Chair Michele Volansky) will select the winning group, which will be announced at halftime. The winners will take possession of the coveted spirit trophy that the Student Affairs Office has held since winning the inaugural contest in December 2011.
There will also be a limited number of Washington College plastic tumblers available at the registration table free on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Washington College's Habitat for Humanity will be selling concessions as a fundraiser at the games.
As is always the case with all regular-season Washington College home athletic events, there is no admission charge.
