UWAA Kick's off Homecoming 2006!

UWAA Kicks Off Homecoming 2006!

Students, alumni and UW community celebrate during week-long festivities

October 22-28, 2006 - Whether you come by plane, boat, car, foot or Dawgsled, Homecoming Week 2006 promises to be more than worth the journey. Beginning with the 21st Annual Dawg Dash and culminating in the traditional Rally in Red Square, the UWAA-sponsored Homecoming 2006 will be packed with Husky spirit and rousing activities.

Homecoming is all about time-honored traditions-whether that means cheering on Coach Willingham at the rally, racing through campus or watching a great football game in Husky stadium. The week's events include the entire UW community, bringing together alumni, students and friends of the U.

Highlights of Homecoming Week include the 21-year-old Dawg Dash and Pre-Dash Bash, a popular 10K run/5K walk through campus and post-event celebration in Husky Stadium; as well as the second annual Homecoming Kickoff, a pre-rally rally for friends of the UWAA (i.e. everybody.) But the centerpiece is Homecoming Rally, in which Husky fans from all over the world converge on Red Square. This year's rally will be emceed by KJR-AM radio personality Dave "Softy" Mahler and will feature food, fun giveaways, the announcement of the Homecoming Court, the introduction of the Dawg Dash winners, performances the Husky Band and Cheer Squad and a pep talk from Coach Tyrone Willingham.
