December 7, 2004, Greencastle, Ind. - The DVD of the 111th Monon Bell Classic is on its way to buyers. The discs, which were jointly produced by DePauw University and Wabash College and replicated at Sony Disc Manufacturing, were delivered this afternoon and are being prepared for shipment. "Our goal was to get the DVD to people in plenty of time for the holidays, and we've met it," says Ken Owen '82, director of media relations at DePauw. "The discs should begin arriving in mailboxes in the next few days, and those who order in the next week or so should have their DVD in time for Christmas."
