Deltasigs go “Home on the Halsey”

The 57th Annual Halsey Invitational Volley Ball – Basketball Tournament was hosted by the Alpha Delta Chapter at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in Lincoln, NE on February 28, 2015. The Des Moines – Central Iowa Alumni Chapter was well represented with 9 members present. 6 alumni brothers from Des Moines fielded a volley ball team for the non-competitive volley ball tournament.

Although the Des Moines alumns failed to bring home a trophy for volley ball, everyone in attendance had a great weekend. Friday night entertainment included line dancing and square dancing (featuring an actual caller who provided some lessons to introduce Deltasigs to the dance-style). The event’s theme was “Home on the Halsey” (celebrating Lincoln’s Westernness). Participants stayed at the Holiday Inn in Downtown Lincoln, near the campus and right next to a large number of restaurants, bars, and entertainment.
The Saturday tournaments were a good time, held on the UNL campus in the Rec Center (a very nice facility).

The Saturday night banquet featured the usual awards, and merriment. Especially exciting was that the Alpha Iota Chapter of Drake University won the 2016 Halsey bid and will be hosting next year’s tournament in Des Moines!

Overall it was great bonding, great sporting, and excellent brotherhood in Lincoln.
