This mysterious Charity Week tradition is one of the more unique Charity Week events. So what is a Tuck In exactly? Basically a creative student or group of students who can be "purchased" to tuck a friend, roommate, or even yourself into bed at night. There's usually a theme or act that goes along with the "bedtime" tuck in.
MONDAY, OCTOBER 7
Pie-Baking Contest: This event is free. Participants will bring and submit their pre-baked pie to the Mall and a panel of professors will judge the pies and name the top three winners. The remaining pies will be auctioned off to the highest bidders in the crowd.
Pie-Eating Contest: This event has a $5 entrance fee. Participants must pay this in the booths during mealtimes in Haggar during the week prior to Charity Week. The event will start immediately after the Pie-Baking Contest. The challenge will be for who can eat one pie the fastest, without using hands. The first person to finish will be awarded a grand prize.
No western week would be complete without a viewing of the classic spaghetti western, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly starring Clint Eastwood! Come enjoy some excellent Italian food with friends and family! Faculty and students eat for $5 and faculty children eat for $3.
The greatest rivals that these parts have seen in years will meet face to face on the chess board at High Noon on Friday! The Cowboys, the Sciences and Math Departments, and the Indians, the Humanities Departments, will duel for the ultimate title in a game of live chess.
Ladies of UD, wouldn't it be nice to have a man at your beck and call? Someone to make you dinner, sing to you, or rub your feet?

Be prepared, and make sure to bring plenty of cash or your checkbook... no IOUs! The men are bringing their A-games this year, so be prepared for a night of fun and entertainment.
Pull on your boots and come two-step the night away! Join your friends in the Gorman Foyer and Faculty Lounge for the annual Charity Week Semi-formal... country style!
