WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Online registration is available this year for events at Spring Fling, the annual appreciation event for faculty, staff, graduate staff and retirees.
Spring Fling will be held May 21 beginning at 11:30 a.m. in and around the Recreational Sports Center.
Registration packets were mailed to faculty, staff and graduate student staff in early April. The packets include registration forms for Spring Fling Face Off, the Spring Fling Classic Vehicle Show, the Spring Fling Fitness Walk and for volunteering during the event.
Those who would like to do so can register online for those activities at www.purdue.edu/hr/springfling.
The registration deadline for mail-in or online registration is May 9.
Those who would like to play golf on the Ackerman Hills course must register by phone at 49-43139, ext. 1. Early registration is urged for the golf outing as tee times usually fill up quickly.
Spring Fling 2008 will include many traditional favorite activities such as the fitness walk, vehicle show, golf outing, bingo, and free play at RSC. Sand volleyball and yard games will be available with registration on site the day of Spring Fling.
The Spring Fling Face Off trivia contest will return for the second year. Teams of four players each match wits against each other, and prizes are awarded to winning teams.
New this year, the Lafayette Fun Squares square dancing club will offer square dancing for those who would like to watch, take part or learn. In addition, the Purdue University Retirees Association will sponsor a food drive for Food Finders Food Bank. Those attending Spring Fling are asked to bring at least one non-perishable item when they come to Spring Fling.
The Indiana Bloodmobile will return and will be at the north side of RSC.
Spring Fling is featuring a new menu this year as well.
Lunch will be a turkey hoagie, chips, pretzels, carrots, trail mix, apples and ice cream. A vegetarian sandwich also will be available. Water and soft drinks are the beverage choices.
Carryout orders for those who can’t leave the office for the afternoon are available at the Meredith Hall kitchen. Orders must be called in May 12-16 at 49-47166. Walk-in orders on the day of Spring Fling are not accepted.
