Border Battle

Border Battle

Every year, Gamma Tau Chapter brings together 4-5 Sigma Nu Chapters from around the area to raise money and awareness for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

We raise money year round leading up to a weekend in late October when all of the participating chapters come visit Gamma Tau. Last year, Sigma Nus raised a total of $10,906 for St. Jude’s, and the men of Gamma Tau Chapter contributed $6,542 to that total.

The weekend events include:

  • Sigma Nu Flag Football Tournament
  • Powderpuff Football Tournament for Sororities
  • LEAD Session with a St. Jude’s representative
  • Brotherhood events with the other Sigma Nu Chapters

Flag Football and Powderpuff Tournaments

Flag Football Tournament

The Sigma Nu Flag Football tournament is played between the participating Sigma Nu Chapters. Each player must have raised at least $100 in order to participate. Last year the Chapters that participated against Gamma Tau were:

  • Beta Epsilon- Coe College
  • Eta Theta- North Dakota State University
  • Lambda Delta- Minnesota State Mankato

Gamma Tau is currently on a 5 year winning streak. The traveling trophy is on display in the Chapter house’s newly renovated Main Room

Powderpuff Tournament

In Fall 2013, Sigma Nu added a Powderpuff Tournament to the weekend and invited sororities to participate and help raise money for St. Jude’s. The first year, four sororities played, but last Fall, 6 sororities raised enough money to send teams. They were:

  • Alpha Gamma Delta
  • Alpha Omicron Pi
  • Alpha Phi
  • Gamma Phi Beta
  • Kappa Kappa Gamma
