Off and Running with Our New Members
Sooner fans, the year has started off interesting for the 2016 squad. Expectations were through the roof. Thankfully, the roof is NOT on fire! 2-2 is better than 1-3 and the Big 12 Championship is still in our sights. With the big saxeT game looming, the excitement is building for our returning members as well as our new members.
Speaking of our new members, I am delighted to share with you all that we had 40 new members sign up with the OU Club of Colorado through the first third of the season. Their membership has helped generate scholarship dollars for the Class of 2021. We have had several members renew for 2016-17, but we have a long way to go to meet last year’s numbers. We know the game next week will be huge, but no matter what the record is for Oklahoma, we still support Colorado high school students looking to go to OU and we hope you do too. As a reminder, your donations are tax deductible and OU matches each donation dollar for dollar.
Coors Light Delights Fans
Special thank you to Andrea and Peter from Coors Distributing Company for their sponsorship and donation to the scholarship fund. We would not be the largest and one of the most successful clubs in the nation without the support of great partners like Coors. As a reminder to those that are new members, we have Coors Light, Blue Moon and Colorado Native IPL as our beers for each and every game. You can also get the specials with your 2016-17 Membership card at Stoney’s any day and time of the week, just let your waitstaff know.
Even though the outcome of the Ohio State game was not what we had hoped, we had a great turnout of 500 fans to meet and greet with Jamelle Holieway and raised more scholarship funds through the verbal auction and membership sales. With the latest game against TCU in the books, this brings the total number of fans to 1600 so far for total attendance.
Don’t forget to follow the OU Club of Colorado on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Each game, don’t forget to text your photos to 303-963-9825 or #ouclubofco. You can do this wherever you are……Stoney’s, the Cotton Bowl, or from your couch.
We have yet another Boomer Breakfast kickoff for the Red River Rivalry Saturday. Kickoff will be 10am MST. Doors will open at 8am, so make sure you arrive early to get that coveted seat. Stoney’s will be rocking with our frenimies from LSU also starting at 10am at Stoney’s South. We need to make sure we have more fans out to support OUr team and this will be the game where if you have an extra seat, invite a new friend to share in the excitement of this game.
Other than our Thursday night tilt with the Cyclones on November 3, stayed tuned for other game times. Your OU Club will be set up at least 1.5 hours before the game selling memberships and t-shirts. And as always, we are always looking for volunteers. We have a great list already and will be reaching out to you soon.
Don’t forget, the OU Club of Colorado is now in The Springs at the Old Chicago Pizza and Taproom at 1579 E. Cheyenne Mountain Blvd. It is a small, but might crowd that comes out to support the Sooners. They have specials for all attendees as well as giveaways. Thank you to the OC for welcoming our Sooner family into their home this season.
Oh, and one more thing……..
Beat the HELL out of saxeT!
