Pigger 2020 is part of a weekend of Blackburn Homecoming events:
This will be the largest gathering of Blackburn College alumni in history. It all happens on Blackburn's Homecoming weekend, September 25 through 27, 2020.
2017 was a huge hit, bringing 365 Blackburn College family members together. There were old alumni, young alumni, current students, retired faculty and current faculty. You name it.
Pigger 2017 was big. This one will be even bigger.
The Blackburn College Athletic Department is excited to host the annual Beaver Backer Golf Scramble on Friday, September 25, 2020. We will again play at the Carlinville Country Club, just south of town on Illinois Route 4, the event will begin at 10:00 AM.
Here's one of the BU family that really stepped up to the "reconnection" challenge. When Mashaan Guy heard of Pigger 2017, he joined in and volunteered to host an Old School Dance on Friday night as a kickoff to Pigger weekend. He found a place (The Magnuson Grand Hotel), found a DJ (Epic Entertainment), and created a great opportunity for all of us to party, like it's a "Dorm Event". I want to thank Mashaan for his commitment to what we are trying to do.
It will be back!
The ticket price is $10. There will be cash bar and appetizers and plenty of Alumni.
It is being held in the reception room, to the right as you enter the Magnuson Grand Hotel.
