It’s Not Too Early to Think About Heading South to Arizona for Spring Zing!

THE CRACK OF THE BAT. The woosh of a nine-iron. The sizzle of burgers and dogs. 75 degrees and balmy.

Heaven on earth? Arizona in March.
Put some zing in your spring at Seattle Pacific University’s annual Spring Zing, scheduled for March 13–15, 2003, in the beautiful Grand Canyon State.

Join alumni and friends in the land of sunshine, cactus and soaring rock ormations. Here are some of the options:

• Barbecue and Mariners game at Peoria Stadium
• Golf with President Philip Eaton at Coyote Lakes
• Tour of the Montezuma Indian Ruins and Sedona
• Ping Golf Tour at Karsten Manufacturing
• The Campaign for SPU Gala Dinner at the Arizona Club

“More than 100 Seattle Pacific alumni, Fellows and friends traveled to this event in 2002,” says Kathy Hitchcock, associate director of alumni relations. “If people knew how fun and affordable it is, we’d have twice that number in 2003. Join us at Falcon ‘headquarters’ in the Embassy Suites-Phoenix North.”

Make your reservations early for Spring Zing by calling the Alumni Center at 206/281-ALUM. Watch for full details and registration form to be mailed in January.
