The 2016 Big Ten Alumni Softball Tournament was held on August 28 in Mendota Heights, and the IOWA team went 2-2 for the day, defeating Michigan State and Nebraska and humbly losing to Illinois and Minnesota, two of the four teams in the semifinals. Minnesota took the tournament championship, going undefeated for the day.
2016 Big Ten Alumni Service Day
Volunteers from the Twin Cities Iowa Club joined 80+ Big Ten alumni at Second Harvest Heartland on April 23 to pack more than 13,000 pound of food. Hundreds of local food shelves in Minnesota and western Wisconsin will benefit from our contribution. Thank you to everyone who participated!

Thank you to everyone that came out to the Twin Cities Iowa Club Picnic and Student Send Off at Oak Hill Park on August 16. We had two great students in attendance who were heading down to the University of Iowa for their freshman year. The rain stayed away and everyone was able to eat great food, play bag toss and enjoy the company of other Hawkeyes! We look forward to doing this event in the future.
On Saturday, July 18th, your Twin Cities Iowa Club along with the Alumni Club from ISU hosted the 4th annual CY-Hawk Golf Outing. This year, we also invited Drake to play. We had 10 golfers sign up and play for Iowa.
Prizes were awarded for the longest drive and closest to the pin. All golfers received a small gift bag. Everyone had a great time! Thank you to all the Hawkeye fans that participated- we look forward to seeing everyone next year!
