Pikes Stay the Night

Emboldened by their decision to eliminate┬áchapter goal “discussions” last year, exec decided to do something even crazier for this year’s chapter retreat. The simple meeting on the grounds was turned into a full-fledged event – complete with a hotel stay and bowling. It turned out to be a great event. Brothers got to hang out together and bond far away from school and come up with more focused goals for the year.
