2013-14 Delta Homeward givers

These Delta brothers have contributed to get Delta to 1st place heading into the last week of OC's Homeward Club Competition. THANK YOU to those on this list. If you are not yet on this list, please go to and make a contribution in ANY AMOUNT to go towards the Delta endowed scholarship and to help Delta become OC's 1st Homeward Club Champion.

** This list is no longer complete. I will update in the next few days as I get final info on who gave to Delta Homeward. Thank you to all of you who 'counted' for Delta in this competition. You and your continued involvement in ways like this are why Delta continues to succeed where so many others have failed. We are strong in ways those outside will never understand. We know it and they keep finding out.

Strength through Unity, Dependability, and Pride.

Friday, April 12, 2013

Delta 40th is ONNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!

The 40th Anniversary Celebration is upon us! Thanks to those who are headed this way and to those who gave it an effort. We heard from a ton of you who couldn’t make it this weekend but touched base to say thanks. This is going to be a good one!

Few quick details below:


First, be sure and save our phone numbers in case you need them this weekend. Read to the end and they are there.


FAMILY COOKOUT is Friday night at 6:30 PM at Lawson Commons. For you guys who haven’t been on campus for years, Lawson Commons is located on the north side of the student center. There is a full map of OC attached as a separate page to this email.

We’ve got food, Delta cake, and OC President John deSteiguer and his wife Darla joining us for the evening. We’ll also have a few soccer balls and stuff for the kids to kick/throw around.

DELTA GOLF TOURNEY is an 8:32 AM shotgun start at Silverhorn Golf Club. Be sure to wear you some fancified golf attire and get there about 45 minutes early to be ready. You will be getting some cool swag!

Silverhorn Golf Club

11411 N. Kelley Ave., Oklahoma City, OK

 40TH ANNIVERSAY CELEBRATION DINNER is at 7:00 PM Saturday night at the Quail Creek Golf and Country Club. Pay attention here – the group pic will take place soon after 7:00, so you don’t want to be late.


Dress for the dinner is business casual. Nice denim jeans and a collared shirt will also suffice. We’ve got a solid program ready and the sacrificial bull is… Never mind, just show up Saturday night to find out.


Quail Creek Golf & Country Club

3501 Quail Creek Road, Oklahoma City, OK

For the grand finale we’ve got Delta Worship on Sunday morning at 9:00 AM. This is a great way to close the weekend. We’ll be back on the campus of OC in Scott Chapel, which is the building you see directly in front of you just to the north of the pond when you enter OC from the south entrance. Scott Chapel is on the 2nd floor Or you can check the OC map.

Alumni Rick Odell ’84 and Jeff McMillon ‘87 will be leading us. What a powerful way to end the weekend by coming together with our families to worship the God who brought us all together to begin with. Hope you’ll all make a good effort to be there. You will be out in time to make it to late service at one of the local churches if you want to go twice.

So, that is it. The guys who have spent a lot of time and effort again say thanks to all of you who have assisted, funded, registered and contacted us. Crazy to think that some guys got together in 1972 to have a little fun and now, 40 years later the camaraderie is still going.

Whether you are flying, driving or walking, have safe travels and we’ll see you this weekend.

Strength through Unity, Dependability and Pride

copy of email sent today in case you did not receive it

if you did not get this email, please send me your current email address. my email is

Delta Brethren,

One of my brothers gently reminded me not everyone is on Facebook, which is where I have been posting most of my updates so please forgive the late notice on some of this info. I’ll take this moment to encourage any FB resisters to consider opening an account and joining the Delta group to be kept up to date on all that’s going on with our brothers. If you can’t bring yourself to do that, I’ll continue to send emails and post to the blog ( when I can.

Ryan Stratton ’88 is hospitalized in Bartlesville with congenital heart failure. He went in with a case of pneumonia and they found severe blockages and a faulty mitral valve. He will have open heart surgery at St. John in Tulsa Monday. I do not have the time. I just spoke to Ryan and he will post it to his Facebook page when he finds out.

Since I don’t send out so many emails anymore, I’m going to cover several things. The 2012 Delta Golf Classic will be held at Silverhorn Golf Club in OKC on Saturday, April 21, 2012. Cost is $75 per player and it’s a 4 man scramble as always. I will send more info including registration and payment info shortly. I will also post that info to the blog as well as Facebook. If you are on Facebook, there is an event page set up for this year’s golf tourney.

Delta’s 40th anniversary is just around the corner. Delta began during the 1972-73 school year and we will celebrate Delta’s 40th in spring 2013. An alumni committee is currently being organized by Eugene Howland ’90 to plan this big event. If you would like to be involved, please contact Eug at Make plans to be in OKC around April 2013 for Delta’s 40th!

Several more things since some of you not on FB may have missed. Delta Ex Prez Phillip Maple ’93 donated a kidney to his father Mike Maple a few months ago. Phillip has recovered nicely but Mike still needs prayers as his body continues to heal. Dave Butts (85-90) is awaiting a kidney transplant. He was set to have this done and it fell thru so he is awaiting an available kidney. Darren ‘Keymaster’ Carpenter ’90 is the very recent recipient of a new kidney donated by his wife Karen. They are both recovering well. I know this seems like a strange series of events and its entirely possible that Diet Skipper is to blame. Please keep these families and brothers in your thoughts and prayers.

Leon McDonald, father of Delta Ex Prez Clay McDonald ’94 & Ryan McDonald ’00 has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and will begin chemotherapy shortly to reduce the tumor so he is a candidate for surgery. Ian O’Daniel’s ‘11 mother has multiple myeloma and is having treatment for that. Several of our brothers are on the hunt for jobs.

I know we could have never imagined an email like this when we were rollin in maroon & gold back in the day, but we are definitely a band of brothers and will suffer with each other as we rejoice with each other. Strength thru Unity, Dependability, and Pride means as much now as it ever has. BROTHERS!

Prayers needed

Several prayer requests-

Delta dad Mike Maple had surgery this week to deal with issues which have arisen following his kidney transplant and affecting his recovery. Phillip says the surgery went well. Please pray for Mike's continued recovery.

Delta alum Ian O'Daniel's '10 mother has been diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, a blood cancer and is currently at OU Med Center as she begins chemo treatment.

Delta legend Dave Butts '85-90 has had a setback and his kidney transplant will be delayed. That is all the info I have currently on Dave but I will post more when I get it. At this time, I will spare y'all the cringe-inducing photo Dave recently posted to his FB page. You may go to Dave's personal FB page if you really want to see it, but if you value your eyesight and dislike the taste of stomach acid in the back of your throat, I'd avoid it.

Guys, we also have several brothers currently looking for jobs. Keep this in your thoughts and prayers as well. For those of you who use Linked IN, we have a Delta group set up there which allows you to see what companies and industries your Delta bros are working in. If you're looking for a job, you can post something to the Delta Linked In page and if anyone knows of opportunities which could benefit you or fit your experience, I encourage y'all to share these with each other and with the group.
