Boiler up! As another season of Purdue football begins, we look forward to meeting our new head coach, Darrell Hazell. We need to welcome him to Ross-Ade stadium with a full house on September 7. And YOU have an opportunity to help.
Through an arrangement by Morgan Burke, Kirk Cerny, Dr Russ Hardin, and Allen Milburn, the Purdue Club of Boone is able to purchase tickets for the opening game against ISU for $20. For each ticket purchased, $5 will be donated back to the club’s scholarship fund. We would like to purchase 150 tickets to be dispersed equally to each Boone county high school: Lebanon, Western Boone and Zionsville. These tickets will be given to seniors by some method determined by the principal. Lebanon has also already agreed to supply a bus for the students. These tickets will be free for the students and purchased by you and you fellow Boilermaker alums.
Anyone is eligible to purchase a ticket and since this all be Band Day at Ross-Ade, we are hoping band parents will also want to attend. They may also purchase tickets through the club at the $20/ticket price. Anyone may purchase these tickets so please spread the word to friends.
We are asking you, a loyal fan and Boone county resident, to help our cause by sending the Purdue Club a check for $100 to purchase 5 tickets to be donated to the local high school. What a great opportunity to help your local school, send a student to Purdue for a great game, and show our new coach that we can FILL the stadium.
Forward your $100 (or more) to Chuck Schmal at 9253 Windrift Way, Zionsville, IN 46077 by August 20. In advance we appreciate your donation and look forward to seeing you at Ross-Ade on September 7!

Our speaker for the meeting at Stookey’s Restaurant on Wednesday, October 10, 2012, is Boone County’s own Lucas Dull.
Have you heard about BUVs? As part of his senior design project, Lucas and his classmates designed and built a Basic Utility Vehicle (BUV) for Cameroon, Africa. A BUV is a vehicle that is cheap, durable, able to carry a significant load, and can be made with what is available in the area. A BUV must meet the transportation needs of rural Africa where roads are terrible, and cars are extremely hard to get. Lucas and fellow classmates started at the concept phase last September, and worked through the rest of the year to have a prototype vehicle for a competition last April that was put on by the Institute for Affordable Transportation, the organization behind the idea of BUVs. After the semester ended, Lucas was part of a group of 6 students who traveled to Bangang, Cameroon, for 19 days to share their design with ACREST, an NGO working to develop sustainable technologies for the area.
Please join us to learn more about Lucas and the BUV project. RSVP by October 5th to Chuck Schmal, 317-344-9253, email: email@example.com, and then send your check for $25 per person (payable to Purdue Club of Boone County) to Chuck at: Chuck Schmal, 9253 Windrift Way, Zionsville, IN 46077).
