Reminder! Homecoming 2005
Saturday, November 12
The Academy’s fourth Homecoming is coming up on Saturday, November 12, 2005. We hope you’ll come home to Exeter and participate in the day’s activities. (Pre-register to attend online and double your chances of winning an Exeter chair.)
New! Live Webcast
If you can’t make it back to campus, join us online for a live webcast of the varsity football game starting at 1:30 pm. This broadcast will also include highlights from other Exeter/Andover contests that day.
Use this test link to check the system requirements for watching the webcast (you’ll see a clip from last year’s game) or review the technical specifications below. The November 12 webcast will be at the same URL. You can also find this information on the Homecoming page at http://phillips.exeter.edu.
Regional Rivalry: Webcast “Mixers”
Exeter and Andover alumni/ae are making plans to watch the webcast together in the following cities: NYC, Boston, Austin, TX, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Details will be emailed next week to those areas. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

They also provide a test link to see if your computer setup will work with their webcast.
I watched part of last year’s webcast from here in California. Don’t remember who won, but it was quite entertaining to see large mounds of snow along the sides of the field. The play-by-play announcements were also done by the students.
