October Football Viewing Update

After the tough loss versus Northwestern, our Nittany Lions will be traveling to Michigan this coming weekend to play the struggling wolverines. The Sanders family is generously hosting the game. Kick off is at 4 pm on Saturday. Please RSVP to bridget@basanders.com.

The following game will be versus Ohio State on October 25 at 8 p.m. There are two options for viewing this Big Ten matchup. The first option is a traditional White-Out at Players Pub in Fair Oaks. As always, this is a fun place where we’ll likely be interacting with some other Big Ten folks, especially since this is a night game. The second option is a viewing party at Wahoo’s Fish Taco, 1820 L Street, a newly opened bar and restaurant in midtown Sacramento. The event will double as a fundraiser for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. LLS will receive 50% of the proceeds from the evening. Food and drink specials are as follows:

$2.22 Beer pints (8 beers to choose from)
$4 Well cocktails
$4.50 Craft margaritas
$3.34 Famous Tacos

As for November viewing gatherings, be on the lookout for email updates from me and updates to the website, psusac.org. October was a little light on football. November, however, has five games scheduled. If you are interested in hosting a viewing party, or have a suggestion for a good location, please contact me.

Summer Events 2014

Summer is almost here and that means bbqs with your alumni associate and broader Big 10 network.

The, Big Ten Picnic will be held Sunday June 1st at William Pond Park in Carmichael. Cost $5 per adult and each family is asked to bring an appetizer or dessert.   These events are a lot of fun and usually involve “corn hole” tournaments with the other chapters.  If you plan to attend, please register your RSVP here.   Please RSVP this week.

Additionally, we have set Saturday August 9th as the date for our annual summer gathering and student sendoff. It will also be held at William Pond Park. We will be putting together our mailer in the late June timeframe for those of you in the immediate area.

Any questions do not hesitate to reach out to me.

Football!

Its time for some PSU Football!  As noted in our mailer – we’re going to do some more alternate site viewing this year starting this Saturday (Syracuse) where we will be at the Henkel House at noon PDT.  If you don’t know what we’re talking about check it out on Facebook.  They decorate, have a pool, bar, and a shrine to PSU.  Yes… a shrine.

We’re purposely not putting Mike and Amy’s address on the Internet but they are in Elk Groove.  If you want to attend, please send Mike an email at liongrad2001 at gmail dot com.  Substitute an @ and . for at and dot.  (This is to protect Mike from Spammers… sorry I’m a 15+ year security geek…)

Other games:

  • 10/21 – Michigan at the Sanders House in El Dorado Hills
  • 10/26 – Ohio State Downtown – We are still looking for a volunteer who lives/knows downtown to organiz

All other games we will be at Players in Fair Oaks and I assume some will go there during the alternate site games as well.  Most notably – Nebraska (11/23) we will be there and in white.  All of your know that they UN alumni show up there in red and in force.  Let’s show them!
