It’s been a year in the making, but its here at last; The results of Strapworks, year long webbing weather test are in and they may just surprise you. Will a full year of being punished by sun, snow, rain, sleet, hail and wind damage our webbing? Will extremes of heat and cold be too much for our webbing to stand up against? Join Brooklyn John as he travels through time to deliver you the answers to these and many other questions you didn’t know you had asked!

Animal House  (1978)
The president of the University of Oregon in Eugene, William Beaty Boyd, had been a senior administrator of a major California university when his campus was considered for a location of the film The Graduate. After he consulted with other senior administrative colleagues who advised him to turn it down due to the lack of artistic merit, production moved to U.C. Berkeley. The Graduate went on to become a classic, and Boyd was determined not to make the same mistake twice when the producers inquired about filming at Oregon. After consulting with student government leaders and officers of the Pan Hellenic Council, the Director of University Relations advised the president that the script, although raunchy and often tasteless, was a very funny spoof of college life. Boyd even allowed the filmmakers to use his office as Dean Wormer’s.
The actual house depicted as the Delta House was originally a residence in Eugene, the Dr. A.W. Patterson House. Around 1959, it was acquired by Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity and was their house until 1967, when the chapter was closed due to low membership. The house was sold and slid into disrepair, with the spacious porch removed and the lawn graveled over. At the time of the shooting, the Phi Kappa Psi and Sigma Nu fraternity houses sat next to the old Phi Sigma Kappa house. The interior of the Sigma Nu house was used for many of the interior scenes, but the individual rooms were filmed on a soundstage. The Patterson house was demolished in 1986 and a large boulder now displays a bronze plaque commemorating the Delta House location.
