UI Alumni Association sponsors official Sun Bowl tour
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Thinking of heading South to see the Hawkeyes take on
Arizona State in the final game of the 1997 football season? The University
of Iowa Alumni Association invites Sun Bowl-bound fans to join in its Official
Bowl Tour, Dec. 28-31.
The association has arranged a complete travel package including round-trip
airfare to El Paso, Texas from either Cedar Rapids or Des Moines; three nights
lodging at the Residence Inn by Marriot; a ticket to the Sun Bowl and a Sun
Bowl souvenir; a pre-game tailgate party; and a host of other amenities.
Anyone interested in being part of the official UI Sun Bowl tour should contact
Dodds Athletic Tours at (800) 553-5527 as soon as possible since only a short
time remains before the trip. The company is handling all travel arrangements,
but those with questions can also call the Alumni Association at (800) IOWALUM
The Sun Bowl kickoff is noon (MST) Dec. 31. The tour's return flight leaves
that evening after the game and unless weather conditions interfere, Hawkeye
fans should be back in Iowa in time to ring in the new year.
