Each year, Peter Bigelow (’83) and his friends remember their Acadia experience
While a student at Acadia, Peter was a member of the Acadia rugby team. He remembers playing rugby on the dykes and thinking what a surreal place it was. He adds that there are many stories he could share from his rugby days, but better not. “The statute of limitations is not up yet!” he says. The Acadia fun and camaraderie continues. Every July 1st, a group of Acadia friends (mostly Chipman boys) gather at Luc Erjavec’s (’83) cottage for the ‘Luc Olympics.’ “We knew we wanted to have a reunion and use Luc’s cottage for it,” Bigelow says. “However, Luc was living in Boston at the time and the only way to get him to come was by naming the event after him!” Now in its 29th year, the Luc Olympics thrive and the Acadia friendships remain steadfast.
