Lion Statue and Sailing

You may recall from a previous post on my blog that I contributed a bronze statue of a lion to my old fraternity at the University of Michigan, SAE. The lion, which represents bravery, is one of the symbols of the fraternity. I had hoped to make it out for the dedication of the statue during Homecoming weekend, but I was unable to make the trip.

I have included a couple of photos from the cold and rainy ceremony. I hope that my fraternity brothers enjoy their new lion.

I was pleased to recently receive a message and update from Cal Burgart. Cal included a photo of him standing next to an SAIC-sponsored sailboat back in 2007. Here’s part of his message to me:

The attached photo was taken in April 2007 after I competed in a mountain bike race in South Africa. The SAIC boat was in Cape Town as a stop on the around the world race.

Thank you, Cal, for the message — I got a kick out of seeing both you and that sailboat. I have attached a copy of the photo Cal sent to me.

— Bob
