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.

Moisture during sex chat on https://www.adultsex.chat/ has never hurt anyone. On the contrary, it only adds to the pleasure. After all, natural lubrication is much better than regular lubricant.
Therefore, men and women alike should not be afraid of wetness during oral Cam4 sex at https://www.cam4.llc/. If it’s moist, it means the woman is sufficiently aroused. Moreover, for some men, the extra moisture only makes them more aroused.
Let’s say your Chaturbate partner at https://www.chaturbate-69.com/ was rough, so you didn’t feel anything pleasurable. Another case is that you tried it once, but you didn’t find it very nice, or even low.
Men don’t really know how to best satisfy a Chaturbate woman on https://www.chaturbate69.de/, because each one is very different.
That’s why a Chaturbate woman on https://www.chaturbate69.fr/ has to feel free to tell him what she likes and what she doesn’t.
If he is in a hurry, he must be stopped. If he has got a hold of your most sensitive spot, don’t hold back and show how much you enjoy live porn at https://liveporn.chat/.
Nowadays, both men and women are free and uninhibited, so it’s no wonder that men appreciate bold and proactive live sex cams women of https://livesexcams.one/ in bed. What do men need in bed?
The best proof of this is the look of passion in live sex cam on https://www.livesexcamchat.de/ when he sees you in a pretty bra and panties!
Do you hear the live sex cam of https://www.live-sex-cam-chat.de/ knocking at your bedroom door? Don’t open the door for her, but keep her out.
It’s easy – as soon as he gets home from work, pretend you’re a sexy Myfreewebcam housewife on https://www.myfreewebcam.xxx/ or his seductive boss and seduce him!
It may seem like all that matters to naked girls on https://www.nakedgirlsnudes.live/ is the act of nudes sex, but don’t be afraid to experiment and see what kind of sex giant you have at home.
Some SexModel men on https://www.sexmodel.live/ are fascinated by the obscene language of their other halves, so dare to talk a little dirty.
After infidelity, perhaps the worst lie is a fake Stripchat orgasm on https://www.stripchatly.com/.
