It's here! The fourth annual Countess of Huntingdon Ball,
Friday, October 25, 10:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m.
Montgomery Country Club, promises to be the second-biggest
event of the semester (next to Homecoming). This year's theme
is "CLUE," as in the murder mystery game (not as in "get a
..."). You don't need a ticket or a date. If you want to, dress
or accessorize as one of the characters or in the game piece
colors scarlet, peacock (blue), mustard, plum, green, or white
(but you don't have to). This is a semi-formal, so, for women,
long or short dresses are ok. Just come, dance and have fun.
It's free! And, to whet your appetite for mystery, CAB will
host Clue and Cupcakes
night Wednesday, October 23
in the DH.
