It's Oozfest Time!

Are you ready for some mud volleyball? Then break out the standard uniform of duct tape and trash bags, and join us for Oozfest on Saturday, April 24. Oozfest is presented by the University Student Alumni Board (USAB), the student affiliate of the UB Alumni Association.

Last year, nearly 1,000 UB students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends on 128 teams played in what has become known as the largest collegiate mud volleyball tournament. It is also one of UB's largest student/alumni events.

Since its inception in 1984, Oozfest has become more than a volleyball tournament with lots of other activities, including music sponsored by radio station Kiss 98.5, a rock-climbing wall, wheelbarrow races, three-legged races, dizzy bat spin races, blue ball hunt, an ice cream-eating contest, muddy water balloon toss, leap frog, and tug-of-war competition.

Teams are forming now! For more information about Oozfest and how you can sign up, visit the membership section of the alumni Web site at www.alumni.buffalo.edu.

USAB is a nonprofit student organization that improves the quality of life at UB by providing programs that directly benefit students, their parents, faculty and alumni. Proceeds from Oozfest 2004 will benefit programs such as the J. Scott Fleming Scholarship Awards, which honor students who have demonstrated positive leadership qualities at UB (the only student-to-student scholarship presented at the university).
