Fellow Students,

Our alma mater warns us not to “let the old traditions fail.” However, this summer, that is exactly what is going to happen. I am sure that all of you have heard the news: Tubestock–a hallmark of Sophomore Summer for 25 years–is marked for extinction. A variety of forces are conspiring to deprive us of a day we have all been looking forward to since freshman fall. When we talk to the classes before us they never fail to mention Tubestock as one of the best experiences they have had at Dartmouth. Lets ensure that we can say the same to the ’10’s.

This is not something that is going to happen on its own. Unless we, the men and women of Dartmouth, gather together and fight for our traditions, Tubestock is doomed. If we are willing to fight for Tubestock there are several avenues we can pursue to maintain this time-honored tradition. If you are interested in joining the effort to save Tubestock please reply to this blitz.

Together we can stop this from being the year that Tubestock dies.
