Directorsʼ Letter The Homecoming Steering Committee and the Mizzou Alumni Association would like to thank you for participating in Homecoming 2012. This year the University of Missouri commemorates the 101st Homecoming by celebrating the traditions of our university and the pride of all Missouri Tigers. Homecoming is a time in which students, faculty, staff, community members and alumni come together to celebrate Mizzou and its impressive history of excellence. Homecoming 2012, “Many Tigers, One Roar,” unites past traditions and alumni with current Homecoming events and Mizzou students. Mizzou students maintain and improve upon past traditions each year through Homecoming festivities, and simultaneously look to the future as they create traditions of their own. The Mizzou Alumni Association is proud to celebrate many events including the Homecoming Blood Drive, which is recognized as the nationʼs largest student-run blood drive. The Homecoming Food Drive benefits the Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri. Campus Decorations and the Homecoming Parade are a unique experiences that combine creativity and service to the Mizzou family and Columbia community. These are just a few of the many Homecoming events that help bring Tiger spirit to Mizzouʼs campus every Homecoming season. All events that support Mizzou would not be possible without the time and dedication of our students. We want to thank you for your commitment and hope you continue to carry on the same Mizzou spirit in years to come, and to help make 2012 yet another successful Homecoming. The Homecoming Steering Committee has been working tirelessly in preparation for the 2012 Homecoming celebration. We strive to make positive changes each and every year, and this year these changes are apparent in all areas of our Homecoming festivities. We are excited about the events and activities scheduled in the weeks and days leading up to October 27, when the fighting Missouri Tigers take on the Kentucky Wildcats. Please use this rulebook as a resource for information regarding all aspects of the Homecoming celebration. Please keep in mind that these rules are subject to change. If changes are implemented, liaisons will be notified to ensure clear communication for all organizations involved. The Homecoming Steering Committee is committed to Mizzou and all participants. We strive to foster Mizzou pride and spread the magic of Homecoming. We truly look forward to working with you! In the spirit of Homecoming, Richard Devero, Karee Hackel, Jordyn Klackner 2012 Homecoming Tri-Directors ! ! ! !

Online donor and volunteer registration will be accessible on Friday, Sept. 14, 2012 at 12:01 a.m. and must be completed by 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 3, 2012 to receive full points. A hard copy printout of each Greek groupingʼs donor registration must be turned in at the liaison meeting on Thursday, Oct. 4 , 2012.

Rules and Guidelines For each Greek grouping to receive maximum points for whole blood donations and automated collection procedure: • •

At least 90 percent of each individual Greek chapterʼs donor roster must be preregistered. Each Greek grouping is required to have 15 percent of their membership participate as volunteers for the blood drive. Each volunteer must serve a twoand-half hour shift. Volunteers must check-in and checkout to receive full points.

You are allowed to donate for a total 3 different types of organizations: •

One Greek Chapter, One Residence Hall, and One Campus Organization.

In order for a Greek grouping to receive full check-in points, each donor must check in within five minutes of his/her assigned time with his/her appointment card and a photo I.D. Students who exchange times/ appointment cards must bring the card with the correct appointment time.

In order for a Greek grouping to receive full checkout points, each donor must bring his/her post donation sheet or proof of deferral along with the appointment card and photo I.D. to the designated checkout station within four hours of his/her scheduled appointment. Donors are not allowed to volunteer on the same day following their scheduled blood donation time. It is the Greek groupingʼs responsibility to ensure that their members follow the appropriate check in and checkout procedures at the blood drive. If a Greek grouping has the equivalent of 100 percent of their members attempt to donate blood during the four days of the blood drive (each of the donors presents his/her post-donation sheet, appointment card, and photo ID upon checking out at the blood drive, all 60 points will be awarded to the Greek grouping. If you believe you will be unable to donate, someone may donate in your Greek groupingʼs name at one of the satellite drives, or in place of your pre-registered appointment time at the four day blood drive. The check-in and check-out 10


process will apply to every pre-registered appointment time. The replacement individual may bring the original appointment card.

Automated Collection Process Each Greek grouping must have at least two members attempt to donate through the automated collection process. Donor criteria information will be handed out at the blood liaison meeting on Thursday, Sept. 13, 2012.

Automated blood donors must meet the following criteria: • Males should weigh at least 150 lbs and be at least 5ʼ1” tall • Females should weigh at least 175 lbs and be at least 5ʼ5” tall This will be worth five points (2.5 for each member) toward the final blood drive points for a Greek grouping. Automated Collection donors will register in the same process as whole blood donors.

Point Formula The total number of points possible through the Blood competition will be 140. This total will be broken down into five different categories: Percent of Greek Groupingʼs Attempted Donation…...........................................60 points Check-in, Check-out points at the Blood Drive…….............................................50 points Required Volunteers…………………………………………………………………...15 points Automated Collection Donors (2.5 x 2)………………………………………………..5 points Blood Liaison Meetings (5 X 2)…….....................................................................10 points Total……………………………………………..…...............................................140 points

Campus Decorations Kelsey Kerwin, Molly Loeffler, Charlie Stoltze HomecomingDecorations@missouri.edu Overview The purpose of Campus Decorations is to inspire students, alumni, and faculty by covering the campus with school spirit as both the University of Missouri and the Columbia community prepare for Homecoming festivities.

General Information •

• • • • •

This event will be held on the evening of Friday, Oct. 26, 2012, from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Campus Decorations must be up by 4 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 26, 2012 except for technical aspects such as lights, sound, and seating.

Approval is designated by the Campus Decorations Committee after attaching a notice to the scaffolding. Campus Decorations will occur rain or shine.

Campus Decorations Reminder • •

Only members of the participating organization may design, build, record and/or decorate. Anything not specified in the rulebook will fall under the interpretation and disciplinary action of the Homecoming Steering Committee. We encourage innovation; if questions arise, please contact the Campus Decorations Committee who will make the final decisions of interpretation. Please remember that the streets will be blocked from noon to 10 p.m. on Friday Oct. 26, 2011. Dimensions

Each campus decoration may not exceed 16 feet in height or 32 feet in width (approximately 16 4ʼx8ʼ boards). 15


• •

These 16 boards can be set flat or offset to a maximum depth of ten feet measured from the front of the decoration. Any other materials, objects or props used to enhance the scene must be attached to the original boards and remain within the allotted ten feet. Groups may use up to 16 boards or less. The amount pomped may be 50 percent or less.* *Approximations are done to recognize the possibility of the organizations pomping half boards, quarter boards, etc. to create a combination of 50 percent rather than specifically pomping 8 boards.

Materials •

• •

• •

The 16 boards referred to in the dimensions section will have the option of being pomped, but can include other embellishments such as paint, glitter, cloth, chicken wire, papier-mâché, etc. The use of alternative and creative materials is strongly encouraged. Prefabricated materials may be used within the design of the Campus Decoration. However, these prefabricated materials must be approved prior to construction and only make up minor details as opposed to a major element of the design. Prefabricated materials should be used at a minimum. Any questions about this may be directed to the Campus Decorations Committee. o Example: When constructing a house, participating organizations may buy shingles for a roof, and plexiglass for a window but not an entire prefabricated house. Props used in Talent are able to be used in Campus Decorations as a freestanding object as long as they are within 4 x 8 x 10. Participants must provide a list of materials to the Campus Decorations Committee by Thursday Sept. 20 immediately following the liaison meeting. Failure to submit all materials on time will result in a point deduction. Final decision of materials allowed, as well as interpretations of rules, will be determined by the Campus Decorations Committee and the Homecoming Advisor. Open flames, televisions and multi-media devices are strictly prohibited. Use of these materials will be subject to disciplinary action by the Homecoming Steering Committee.

Freestanding Objects • • • •

A maximum of two freestanding objects will be allowed for each Campus Decoration. Any objects that extend off boards may not exceed 2 feet. These objects may be adjacent to make one larger object. They may not be stacked, or attached due to safety restrictions These objects must be hand-made by the organization. The objects cannot be traditionally pomped. However, chicken wire pomp, papier-mâché, or any other art form will be acceptable. o Props used in Jesse are limited to 4ʼx8ʼx10ʼ each. If you wish to reuse items 16


for Talent the sizes of individual pieces may not exceed these dimensions. At least one of the freestanding objects must be used at least two times between Campus Decorations, Parade or Talent.

Audience Involvement •

• •

All campus decorations must have an interactive activity for the audience to take part in. o This can be included in a freestanding object or skit. Activity must be submitted with the preliminary sketches in order to be approved. Changes to activity will be accepted up until the final sketch submission. They must be approved by the Steering Committee.

Moving Parts •

Decorations may contain an unlimited amount of moving parts within the specified dimensions. However, all moving parts must follow the originals materials guidelines. Members of organizations will be allowed within the dimensions to move figures during the performance. To avoid point deductions, ask the Campus Decorations Committee about any parts that may be questionable.

Characters •

A maximum of seven characters are allowed for each skit. Multiple forms of art will be accepted and are encouraged (i.e. traditional pomp, chicken wire pomp, paper mâché, paint, etc.). The use of human characters is not allowed.

Performance • • • •

You may choose to provide light snacks to the judges, but you may not present them gift bags, boxes, baskets or anything else that encourages them to be taken away from the table. All items used in the Judges area must be in your materials list and must be approved by the Campus Decorations Committee.

Site • •

Point Breakdown •

All Campus Decorations will be judged on a 140-point scale (refer to the score sheet provided). Keep the score sheets in mind when planning and building your Campus Decoration. They are the exact sheets that will be used by the judges and will be a useful source for your organization. The highest and lowest scores will be averaged together. This score will be added together with the other six scores, thus eliminating outliers, for a total of seven scores. Additional honorable mention awards will be given based on categories from the score sheet including Storyline, Creativity, Overall Design, Sustainability and Characters. These awards will not be worth additional points, but are meant to add recognition for the hard work and creativity put into the Campus Decorations.

Parade

Trent Kruessel, Greg Loeffler, Maggie Nestor, Katelyn Young HomecomingParade@missouri.edu Overview • •

• •

The Homecoming Parade will be held Saturday, October 27, 2012, Time: TBA. Any student organization recognized by the University of Missouri, residential unit, community organization or business may enter a decorated car, float, walking banner or other entry as allowed by the parade committee. In order to be judged, Greek groupings must enter a float according to the rules outlined below. Participating groups must submit entry forms online at www.mizzou.com/HCParade2012StudentOrg by Friday, October 5, 2012 at 5 p.m. o Detailed sketches of each decorated entry (i.e. float or vehicle) must be turned in Thursday, October 11, 2012 at the liaison meeting. o This yearʼs entries will be capped at 125. Parade entries will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis. Greek entries will be ranked in first through fifth places based on the criterion listed on the judging form.

Rules and Guidelines Float Dimensions • • •

Entries must not exceed a height of 11 feet (from bed of the trailer to the top of entry) or a width of 12 feet. Trailers must not exceed a length of 24 feet. Entries must be safely navigable throughout the parade route. For safety and navigational purposes, no semi-trucks are allowed.

Construction • •

Only members of the respective organizations may construct floats. NO OUTSIDE HELP IS ALLOWED! Floats are subject to inspection by the Homecoming Steering Committee to ensure guidelines are followed.

29


• •

• •

Floats must incorporate at least one moving part powered by hydraulics, electric motors, and/or rope pulley systems. The mechanisms must be indicated in the detailed sketch to receive proper approval. The only people allowed on the float are those working the moving parts. These individuals must not be visible to the crowd and may not wear costumes. Prefabricated materials may be used in the design of the float; however, these prefabricated materials must be approved prior to construction and may only make up minor details as opposed to a major element of the design. o The same prefabricated rules from campus decorations apply to parade floats. o Any questions about prefabricated materials can be directed to the Parade Committee. The Parade Committee has full discretion over what is or is not allowed as a prefabricated material. If you have any questions, please contact the Parade Committee. Absolutely no flames or any form of pomping are allowed. The penalty for using flames or pomping is disqualification. No objects (water, candy, confetti, etc.) may be propelled or thrown from the float at any time along the parade route.

Decorations • • • •

Any organizations constructing floats must incorporate Truman the Tiger and your respective era. The theme specific to each float should be visible from both sides of the float. The name of each organization should be clearly represented on both sides of the entry. Greek groupings must incorporate one object from either Talent or Campus Decorations, 5 points will be granted for the use this object.

Parade Route • •

All entries must maintain forward motion at all times. Each Greek grouping must have at least 25 members of the total grouping walking with the entry during the parade. At least one member of each Greek Chapter must walk with their float. Candy and other handouts may only be directly handed to audience members, not thrown.

Spirit •

Spirit throughout the parade and overall enthusiasm of the walking participants is strongly encouraged

30


o This includes but is not limited to: chanting, cheering, smiling, waving, crowd interaction, etc. o Please note that purchased materials do not necessarily equal spirit or enthusiasm.

Tips on Float Construction The most important thing to remember when building a float is to know your limitations. You will need to determine the budget, time commitment, resources, and talent available. Be sure to follow the rule book closely as rules will be strictly enforced. A detailed sketch is required. The purpose of the sketch is to make sure your float is acceptable and meets all requirements. However, your float will be inspected at a later date to make sure that your float, physically, meets all requirements. It is important to start early to achieve your goal of having a successful float. You will want to build a structure strong enough to last for the duration of the parade route. Remember: Know your limitations! Paper maché and painting are all effective ways to cover the float; however, there are other coverings that are acceptable. Please contact the Parade Committee if you have questions concerning your choice of covering. Remember NO POMPING! The safety of your float is most important!
