Surtees Athletics Centre.  A new event - the Alumni Pub takes place in the Wall at 8 p.m. with The Maple Hill Project (featuring three Nipissing alumni: Doug Herbrand - vocals and guitars, Pat O'Kane - vocals and guitars and Mark Robinson – vocals)

A full day of events starts Saturday at 10 a.m. with the Alumni Homecoming Brunch.  At 1 p.m. you can enjoy Pints & Pancakes in the Robert J.
