UW CSE’s 3rd annual Notkinfest TGIF

dnThe announcement read:

This Friday, 5/8 at 4:30 in the Atrium, we will be holding the 3rd annual Notkinfest TGIF to celebrate the life of former CSE chair David Notkin! Come, eat, drink, and enjoy exciting beard-related activities, which in past years have included “Make your own Notkin beard” and “Pin the beard on the Notkin.” There will be prizes in benson store credit** for “Best Beard” and “Most Creative Beard.”

Check out pictures from Notkinfest 2014 and from the 0th annual Notkinfest (on David’s retirement as chair).

**$43 will be split between the winners to honor the impressively low number of times David wore a tie as CSE chair. He wore a tie only 43/1672 days as chair, for an average of 38 no-tie days for every day wearing a tie. Check out his complete list of tie occasions.

We were particularly pleased that David’s wife Cathy and daughter Emma were able to join this year’s activities!

We miss you, David!
