Penn State Sacramento Summer Plans

We have some fun events on the calendar coming up for summer. The Big Ten Picnic, an outing to a Sacramento RiverCats game, and our annual Student Send-off and Picnic are all in the works. More details to follow on the picnics in a later email. But save the date for the B1G Alumni Mixer (April 2, click here for details), B1G picnic (TBD), and the PSUSac picnic (August 10).
As for the RiverCats outing, we have the Pacifico Porch reserved for the matchup between the Sacramento RiverCats and the Tacoma Rainiers on Saturday July 27 at 6 pm (First pitch at 7:05). We have a total of 50 tickets, which are, thanks to an alumni sponsor, available for only $10 each. Our group ticket holders will be welcomed into the private party porch and tickets include all-you-can-eat BBQ. The Pacific Porch is really nice because it is shaded but near many of the fun amenities, including the playground in the outfield.
Come join us for a day of baseball and Penn State camaraderie. Maybe we’ll even tailgate before the game…

Football @ Pitt, WVB @ Stanford, & B1G SacramentoBowling Tournament!

Autumn is almost here, so close your eyes and imagine the leaves changing on Mount Nittany and the RV pilgrimage up Rt. 322. Football is nearly here and the school year has begun.
Before we move to the upcoming events, I want to thank everyone who attended and helped out at the Summer Picnic and Student Send-Off. As always, it was a wonderful time. One of our send-off students, Keegan Ness, transferred from Oregon State to Penn State to play soccer and arrived at University Park a few weeks ago. His mother, Maria, emailed to say thank you for welcoming them (even though she is a Wolverine). Thank you to all.

Location: The Henkel Estate, 1959 Shelby Circle, El Dorado Hills, CA 95762 (Beaver Stadium West)
