To the unfortunate person who decided it would be a good idea to park on the grass behind Gilwreath on the night of a 12 keg hoedown: Sorry, but burning material was scarce after all the wooden fences were consumed. Your illegally parked vehicle had to be sacrificed.
Has anyone identified the two naked guys running through the crowd with pig masks on? I believe Matignon would be very proud.
That Hobart Lane Umass Crest is a riot! I just noticed the inscription under the beer mug! I gotta upload some late 80's pics to go with the other pics up on the site
I love you guys who think you are the originals. Lived at Gilreath 1989 and we had hundreds and hundreds of people, countless kegs, and yes, the obligatory courtyard burning of the furniture. Police, Fire, etc. Any of you younger people hear of the riots in Southwest after the Sox lost to the Mets 1986? We made national news for that one.
41 Hobart Lane...so many stories, so little time. How can I forget breaking out the black keg when the other kegs ran dry. For anyone who was drinking there that fateful night in 95...sorry. The black keg had been tapped a couple of weeks earlier and the remains left in the garage. I'm sorry that 5 kegs weren't enough and that you guys forced our hand. Actually...no I'm not. Ha! Ha!
I lived on Hobart in 1997....and was certainly part of the hoedown AND the mudwrestling w/ my roommate Tim. Our place was trashed...with mud..However, we were lucky no one in our unit was injured..guys in a few units down someone broke their leg, or was it an arm? And yes, i too recall the landlord being taken away with "chestpains"
I have photos of the hole FUN..mess..., i'll scan and upload. Wasn't this the hoedown to end all hoedowns for a while???
I don't remeber a time when the Police didn't show up! I can't remember any exact times or dates - must have been a good 4 years huh? I was going to Hobart before I even went to UMASS. It was my first "off campus" experience. Class of 2000! Umass '96-'00. I have to pass this page around to everyone. Such a great idea!
I peed on you a few times and drank on you a bunch. Sorry... and thanks
I was a resident of Hobart lane (#49 to be exact) back in 95/96 - HOLLA!
Did you read the police report from '94 on the news page? I was friends with some people who lived there and I remember when that happened - when the old lady cop came in and bought a cup and everybody was yelling "narc"! - and the kid saying "i'm not going down alone on this!" anybody know what ended up happeneing? did he go down alone?
I remember this kid with a nickname of "crazy" or maybe it was quazar? He was always broke and would steal my food. Another guy named uncle BJ that used to boil hot dogs every night. No one has seen or heard from him in 10 years. I think he moved to Canada.| 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 | Add Message
