All Ivy Summer Celebration

It's a day of outdoor activities followed by an evening of great food, an unlimited assortment of award-winning craft brews, door prizes, and a highly competitive inter-ivy-league-school billiards tournament.

 

Date: Saturday, June 30, 2018

Time: 6:00PM - Food and Beverages / 6:30PM - Billiards Tournament

Place: The Triumph Brewing Company, 400 Union Square, New Hope, PA

 

 

 

THE ALL IVY SUMMER CELEBRATION is sponsored by The Harvard Club of Philadelphia and will be a day of varied afternoon activities of your choice in and around the quaint town of New Hope, PA, (located only about an hour's drive from both Philadelphia, PA and Morristown, NJ).  Then everyone will rendezvous at 6:00PM at the Triumph Brewing Company (click here for more information) located in the heart of New Hope.  We will then move into the evening with great food, an "open beer bar" featuring Triumph's award-winning craft brews, and a highly competitive inter-ivy-league-school billiards tournament.  "A highly competitive billiards tournament" you ask? Yes, read on...

THE IVY CUP TOURNAMENT will be a "sudden death" bracket elimination wherein after each game the losing team is immediately eliminated from The Tournament.  Initial brackets will be established by a random drawing. Each winning team will play another team in the next round, until the final match wherein the winner will be declared "The Tournament Champions".  If you wish to be a member of your school's team, you will have the opportunity to indicate that when you sign up for this event.  We will put interested parties from each school in touch with each other via email on or before June 1st (and then add any new individuals after that date).  It will then be up to each school's group how to determine the two (or four) players who will represent their school in the Tournament.

THE PACKAGE that we have arranged includes all of the evening activities described above.  We will have a private room from 6:00PM to 9:00PM (click here to see it), exclusive use of two pool tables, an "open beer bar" featuring an assortment of Triumph's brewed-on-site award-winning craft beers, a quantity of appetizers sufficient to serve as dinner, and a variety of door prizes.

IN THE AFTERNOON you will have a choice of outdoor activities consisting of:

  • TUBING down the Delaware River and soaking up the sun...  Click here for more information!  Bets are this will be the favorite activity of the afternoon!

  • BICYCLING along the Delaware River canal's 200-year-old smooth and shady towpath...  Click here for more information including how to rent a bicycle for the day!

  • SOARING to new heights and experiencing barnstorming in vintage open cockpit aircraft...  Click here for more information!

  • EXPLORING New Hope's numerous and unusual shops and cafes...  Click here for more information!

We have tried to come up with something for everyone!  When signing up for The All Ivy Summer Celebration, please indicate which of these afternoon activities you would like to participate in.  You will be contacted via email on or around June 1st and then again on June 15th regarding logistics for each activity. Naturally, the cost of these diversions will be your responsibility and will be in addition to the cost of the evening event.

A ROMANTIC WEEKEND is possible (yes, we did think of everything) as there are many hotel and B&B options in the area. Click here for information.

TRANSPORTATION to New Hope is easy!  If you are driving, just follow the GPS in your car or on your smart phone.  If training it from Philadelphia, take SEPTA's West Trenton Line to the Yardley, PA station.  Then New Hope is about a 20 minute taxi or Uber ride. If training it from anywhere in New Jersey, take NJ Transit to the Trenton Transit Center.  Then New Hope is about a 30 minute taxi or Uber ride.

PLEASE RSVP ASAP The billiard teams will want to start practicing as soon as possible! Plus, as you can see, this event requires a great deal of coordination.  The earlier we have firm headcounts, the easier it will be for the individuals listed below who are doing the heavy lifting. Finally, space is not unlimited in our room at the Triumph Brewing Company and we don't want to tell you that you are SOL.  Therefore, please respond sooner rather than later!

PA3 Book Club: May Meeting

April 27, 2018 - The book club will meet on Thursday, May 24, from 7-8:30 pm in East Pyne 111. Note this is one week earlier than our usual last Thursday, to avoid running into Reunions. And in the spirit of Reunions, our May selection is:

The Final Club, by Geoffrey Wolff '60: "The full coming-of-age of Nathaniel Clay, which occurs at the class of 1960's 20th reunion at Princeton, is the ironic theme of Wolff's emotionally and sociologically accurate novel, a work that combines nostalgia and cynicism to powerful effect."
