Reflections from the DKE Convention 2012

Last week Brother William Leonard and Brother Robert Howe attended the 168th DKE Convention.  Reflecting on his experience Brother Leonard writes:

Recently, Brother Howe and I attended the 168th DKE convention, hosted by the Psi Chapter, at the University of Alabama. Despite excruciatingly long delays, missed connecting flights, and a night spent at the airport in Atlanta, we finally arrived in Tuscaloosa on Thursday morning. Unfortunately, we missed the welcome dinner and tour of the legendary Bryant-Denny Stadium, home of the Alabama Crimson Tide football team.

Throughout the course of the convention, we attended various seminars that covered topics such as recruitment, risk management, new member education, dekeunited website management, and ritual. Brother Howe and I especially enjoyed executive director of DKE International, Doug Laphner’s presentation on DKE HQ’s finances. It was interesting to see what our international dues have been funding and how they will help DKE International’s future plans of expansion. Hopefully some of the techniques we learned at the convention will help the Rho chapter achieve excellence in all of its future endeavors.

There was an informal presentation made for the delegates during every lunch and  dinner. In my opinion, these were by far the most interesting and informative sessions of the convention. The speakers included  Nick Pence, Sigma Kappa ’99 (Army Ranger, member of unit that brought Ayman al-Zawihiri to justice), Bill Kavan, Theta Upsilon ’92 (Director of Development at Arizona State University), John McCardell (President Emeritus of Middlebury, Vice-Chancellor of Sewanee: The University of the South, leader of a coalition of college presidents that are in favor of lowering the drinking age back to 18), Robert Witt (Chancellor of the University of Alabama), and Terry Stewart, Phi Chi ’69 (President of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and former Chairman of the Board of Marvel Comics).

Although the seminars and presentations were interesting, Brother Howe and I agreed that the most valuable experience from the convention was the opportunity to meet and interact with other Dekes from across North America. Although chapters differ from school to school, it was quite evident that all the delegates truly were gentlemen, scholars, and jolly-good fellows. We have all kept in touch through Facebook, and I think it’s safe to say that we made friendships that will last a lifetime. The convention showed us that our motto “friends from the heart forever” applies not only to the brothers of our chapter, but to every Deke across North America, regardless of what school they attended and what year they graduated.

155 thoughts on “Reflections from the DKE Convention 2012

  1. Male sperm contain active elements such as prostaglandins, which, when ingested by a Chatrubate woman of https://www.chatrubate.cam, increase the production of the female hormone estrogen, which improves the health and beauty of the skin and hair, and increases the volume of the hips and chest. However, keep in mind that these effects are only possible when the sperm are swallowed. Engaging in oral sex is a great workout to reduce calories, as in the 26 minutes you go you burn the calories of one pizza. During fetalization, the nerve roots of the lips are irritated and oxytocin is released, which allows the woman to relax.

  2. Lipids present in semen have healing properties and are essential for gastritis or colitis. Also mentioned is recommended for future pregnancy. With sperm, you will receive your partner’s DNA, and to conceive, you will help sperm to establish themselves in the womb. Before getting pregnant, doctors recommend a three-week porno Francais oral sex by https://www.filmpornofrancais.net practice. True, there is also one “no” here: the sperm must be swallowed because otherwise, everything will go to waste. UK researchers, on the other hand, say oral sex is even more dangerous than smoking, as this type of sex can contribute to an increase in the incidence of throat cancer.

  3. So remember the golden rule – what’s too much – it’s unhealthy. Any man who tries to look at porno Italiano lesbian life on https://www.filmpornoitaliano.net through a keyhole and learn from it how to love a woman will tell you that something is missing here. What can be learned? Lesbians know perfectly well why it’s better than a finger. It’s cool, hot, and humid. He is sensual and bends in all directions. Most of the lesbian sex is taken by oral sex. And I have to say that women like it. During oral sex, they reach orgasm twice as often as when there is a dick in their vagina. After all, men also like oral, right?

  4. You can’t pretend you haven’t experienced an orgasm yet and can get excited again. It’s easier for lesbians in this case. Superficial touches excite a woman more than various bites or wrinkles. Men just want to squeeze and squeeze hard during live sex on https://livesexcams.one. Perhaps the primordial instinct awakens here that the female needs to be gripped harder so that she does not run away when she changes her mind. But these days, you’re not risking anything. Even if she gives up, then she will still not run far. So relax and let it play on the surface of her body so that the “ants” run under the skin. It’s not from the cold.

  5. And if in the heat of a Chaturbate love game on https://www.chaturbate69.com, you can both press and take harder. It is only still advisable to remain cautious, especially when it comes to the breasts or genitals. No pain required. All men have a hard time answering what a female clitoris looks like and where it is. Although, as you know, who searches, he finds. Consequently, we do not want or seek. And here lesbians, being women themselves, are well aware that this small organ can turn even a constipated woman out of the stem.

  6. You will need to constantly consult with your partner about what she likes and how to do it to please her. Because the clitoris is so small and sensitive that you step in one direction or the other – and you missed your chance. Sex sellers say Cam4 lesbians of https://www.cam4.llc are one of the most active shoppers. Also, heterosexual men buy traditional and quite conservative toys when the lesbian shopping cart is quite diverse – from sexy clothes to sophisticated mechanisms. Here they feel like kids in a candy store – they want to try everything, but vibrators and strap-on are their favorite sex toys.

  7. You really won’t buy a belt with a phallus imitator – even if you did, you wouldn’t have anywhere to put one. In bed, lesbians take far less risk than a woman being with a man. Lesbians have almost no chance of contracting venereal diseases. You can’t get pregnant from love games. So, having sex pazintys with a lesbian on https://www.sexpazintys.biz is safe sex. You buy condoms and always keep them with you. For everything, for any occasion in life. Lesbians always agree and find common ground with their partners. And this is not surprising – still, women think similarly.

  8. They can chat at sex pazintys on https://www.sexpazintys.net for hours, share useful information – and here the intonation of the voice is more important than the meaning of the words. They can talk just to talk. Most men are completely unsuitable for this. They are not interested in what the co-worker was wearing or how many people have children. They are interested in cars. Well, still fishing. You can’t tell spiritual stories or chat about how you bought milk at the store yesterday and what you saw there. But you can listen and listen to those stories without distorting your face as if you had seizures.
