UI Alumni Association sponsors official Sun Bowl tour

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Thinking of heading South to see the Hawkeyes take on Arizona State in the final game of the 1997 football season? The University of Iowa Alumni Association invites Sun Bowl-bound fans to join in its Official Bowl Tour, Dec. 28-31.

The association has arranged a complete travel package including round-trip airfare to El Paso, Texas from either Cedar Rapids or Des Moines; three nights lodging at the Residence Inn by Marriot; a ticket to the Sun Bowl and a Sun Bowl souvenir; a pre-game tailgate party; and a host of other amenities.

Anyone interested in being part of the official UI Sun Bowl tour should contact Dodds Athletic Tours at (800) 553-5527 as soon as possible since only a short time remains before the trip. The company is handling all travel arrangements, but those with questions can also call the Alumni Association at (800) IOWALUM (469-2586).

The Sun Bowl kickoff is noon (MST) Dec. 31. The tour's return flight leaves that evening after the game and unless weather conditions interfere, Hawkeye fans should be back in Iowa in time to ring in the new year.
