 2012 Recall: Golf, Banquet and Vintage Cars

Schreiner University’s homecoming weekend, Recall, will be April 20-22 this year with great events for former students and the community members. The weekend really kicks off every year with the Randy Shepler Annual Alumni Golf Tournament at Riverhill Country Club. The 2012 tournament will be sponsored by Ken Stoepel Ford/Lincoln and tournament proceeds will be donated to the Hill Country College Fund, a Schreiner scholarship fund that benefits students in Bandera, Edwards, Gillespie, Kendall, Kerr, Kimble and Real counties.

Most of the tournament field will be current and former Schreiner students, but community golfers also are welcome. The fee is $125 and the field is capped at 96 players. The tournament will start at 1 p.m., Friday, April 20.

Vicki Mullins, class of 1998 and assistant art director of creative services at Schreiner, will be the guest alumni artist, with an exhibit of her artwork on the second mezzanine of the Floyd & Kathleen Cailloux Campus Activity Center. There will be a reception in her honor 3-5 p.m. on Saturday on the CCAC mezzanine. The exhibit will run April 20-28.

Among the other weekend events will be the annual parade. This year the theme is Mardi Gras and the Fredericksburg Vintage Car Club will join in. The parade starts at 11 a.m., traveling around the loop clockwise and ending at Robbins-Lewis Pavilion. The public is welcome to attend. After the parade, the vintage cars will be on display near the pavilion.

The Military Breakfast Saturday morning and the Tribute to Schreiner Legends Banquet that evening are always popular events. Golden Grads from the class of 1962 will be recognized during the breakfast. The banquet this year will honor Roy Q. Minton as Schreiner’s newest Distinguished Alumnus, and Dick Harben and Laurence Becker will be inducted into the Athletic Hall of Honor. Other popular annual events include the recognition of Schreiner’s silver grads, this year those from 1987, campus tours and the Family Picnic. For the third year, there will be a “Shoot with Schreiner Champions” at the Hill Country Shooting Sports Center.  The Schreiner Shooting Sports Society has had a stellar year, with a good chance for a 2012 U.S. Olympian in the offing.

The Schreiner University dining hall will be closed to the public on Saturday, April 21, but will reopen for brunch on Sunday, April 22.
