Cyclones Everywhere


The Traveling Cyclones are partnering with the schools of the Big 12 Conference for a unique travel offering next July aboard Oceania Cruises' Regatta -- a family-friendly trip to Alaska's Vistas and Glaciers hosted by Voice of the Cyclones John Walters and his wife, Joni. The Big 12 sports-themed trip will include a Big 12 reception and tailgate, a celebrity lecture by legendary CBS Sports announce Verne Lundquist, and more. This will be a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see glaciers, fjords, forests, mountains, and historic Alaska towns -- including the Alaska Explorer Youth Program for your children and grandchildren ages 5-12. Bring the whole family for this awesome adventure to Alaska next July. For more information about this unique opportunity to see Alaska, visit our website or call Traveling Cyclones director Shellie Andersen (L)('88 marketing) or assistant director Heather Botine (L) toll-free at (877) 478-2586
