PSU Alumni TaxSlayer Bowl Viewing Party

Sacramento-San Joaquin Area Alumni,

The Nittany Lion football team arrived in Jacksonville yesterday for the TaxSlayer Bowl. The game will be a rematch of the classic 1982 National Championship game versus the Georgia Bulldogs. Plus, any time a Big Ten team plays an SEC team, it’s an important opportunity to show that you don’t have to be from Dixie to know football.
The Henkel family has offered to host a gathering on Saturday morning so we can celebrate the football team and get together one last time this football season. Feel free to start showing up between 8:30 and 9 am. 

Where: 4604 Elliot Ranch Road, Elk Grove
When: 9 am on Saturday, January 2, 2016
What to bring: something small to share
Any questions? email me ( or Mike Henkel at
Hope to see you there!

PSU Sacramento 2015 Football Viewing

All signs point to this being a good year for Penn State football. Christian Hackenberg is expected to return to his 2013 success. The offensive line looks stronger. The defense is primed to once again be one of the best in the country.
We have several events scheduled so far for the season. The Henkels are hosting this Saturday’s opening game versus Temple at their home in Elk Grove. Kickoff is at noon on Sept. 5 at 4604 Elliot Ranch Road (Beaver Stadium West). All are welcome. Take a look at the flyer below for more details.
We also have the Eschleman family hosting the Indiana game on October 10 in Sacramento, the Sebrings hosting the Ohio State game on October 17 in El Dorado Hills, and the Sanders family hosting the Michigan game on November 21 in El Dorado Hills. Check our website and facebook page for updates as those dates come closer – &
As for the rest of the games, the default meeting place is always Players Pub in Fair Oaks. However, if you would like to host a game or suggest a different sports bar to try as a group, let me know ( or (717) 891-7155)).
So mark your calendars and get out your gear. It’s football time!
Success with Honor,

Spring / Summer Events 2015

Hello everyone!  I hope you and yours are having a wonderful spring. Since we last met, the football team won the Pinstripe Bowl, Coach Rose and the ladies on the volleyball team brought us another National Championship, both basketball teams have had their ups and downs, the wrestling team has continued to be a national championship contender, the women’s gymnastics team dominated in Rec Hall, and the students participating in THON once again made us all proud with their philanthropy.

Today, I’m writing to offer a quick update on our activities planned for the spring and summer.

We look forward to seeing everyone out at the events!

Penn State v. Temple Viewing Party

With three more games in the regular season, our Nittany Lions are looking for some more wins and a bowl berth. Our ugly victory over Indiana gives us five wins, so we’ll be playing for a bowl game against Temple. Tim and Tammy Sebring have offered to host a PSU football viewing party for that game this Saturday, November 15.

We will gather at Dorado Software in El Dorado Hills. The hosts are providing food. Drinks are bring-your-own-beverage. There will be a big screen TV and plenty of room. Kickoff is at 9 am. Please RSVP to

It’s a great time of year for Penn State. Women’s volleyball is gearing up for another championship run in the NCAA tournament. Wrestling is set to do the same as they prepare for their season. Preparation for THON is surely in full swing back in State College. Not only is the football team likely to make a bowl game, there is a fairly decent chance that bowl game could be in California. Some projections even have us playing Arizona in the San Francisco Bowl at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara on December 30.

Please join us on Saturday and help us cheer the Lions to a bowl berth.
