Coyote Reunion set for June 27-29 on campus

Football is officially back at The College of Idaho, and it’s time to celebrate! All C of I alumni and friends – including former football players and student-athletes from all Coyote teams – are invited to join us June 27-29 as the College hosts the Coyote Reunion celebrating the return of football as well as the soon-to-be-built Athletics and Outdoor Education Center.

“What a great opportunity for us to gather and celebrate the reintroduction of football to the College after almost 40 years,” said Buzz Bonaminio, a former C of I football player and coach. “It’s going to bring back so many memories, and it’s going to be a fun deal for everyone. We have some great events planned, but I think what people will enjoy most is just visiting and talking with friends about all the good times and the enjoyment we all shared as students at The College of Idaho.”

Head football coach Mike Moroski will be featured at the reunion along with many other Coyote coaches both past and present. Space is limited, so your immediate response is requested! Click here to register online, or call the C of I alumni office at (208) 459-5770 for more information.

Coyote Reunion events include on-campus cocktail parties, a golf scramble at Purple Sage (limited to the first 100 players), a luau dinner and, most importantly, an opportunity to catch up with old friends and reminisce about the glory days both on and off the field.  Registration is $100 per person and includes admission to two happy hour events as well as the catered luau dinner. The golf scramble is an additional $50 per player, and a progressive wine tasting also will be offered for non-golfers at just $15.
