NEW YEAR NEWSLETTER
We hope you all had a wonderful holiday season filled with many blessings, friends and family. The OU Club of Colorado had another record breaking year thanks to the generosity of all our members and fans. When we were not raising money during the football season, we were quite busy with a number of other events. We held a Future Sooner Reception in March with the help of the University’s Student Service office to answer questions and give information about OU to Colorado high school students. In July we held our second annual Sooner Sendoff where about 60 incoming OU students and family members attended to meet before heading off to Norman. We were very lucky to welcome two new sponsors this year (Patron and Sooner Spectator), making a total of five sponsors for the club. Additionally, this year we sold more memberships and t-shirts than any other year! Because of this we really look forward to starting the scholarship process in order to award even more money and scholarships to Colorado students. In May we offered partial scholarships to 7 Colorado students attending OU this past fall. Look for more information to come as to how you can apply for our 2013-2014 scholarship.
Cotton Bowl Watch Party
Friday, January 4th, the Sooners will travel to Arlington to play Texas A&M and Heisman trophy winner, Johnny Manziel, in the 76th annual Cotton Bowl Classic. In fact OU will be the only school to play all three Heisman finalists this year: Johnny Manziel (Texas A&M), Manti Te’o (Notre Dame) and Collin Klein (Kansas State). Kickoff is at 6:00pm MST. Make sure to come down to Stoney’s to watch the game. We will have a mini auction, raffles, drink and food specials and more!
OKC Thunder and OU Club of Colorado Night Out
Because of the success of last year’s Thunder/Nuggets outing, we have secured another deal with the Pepsi Center and reserved about 100 tickets for the March 1 Thunder/Nuggets game. We have reserved club level tickets for $50 each (normally $80). All seats will be located together in the OU section. Tickets will be sold on a first come, first served basis and are based on availability. There are no taxes or additional fees added to your order. To purchase tickets visit:www.nuggetstix.com/ouclubofcolorado
or contact Brad Currier at 303-405-1334 for tickets and questions. We will host a happy hour prior to the event with more details on that to come. Please see the attached flyer for more details.
Student Service Representative
Since the number of high school students attending OU from Colorado has continued to grow through the years, we now have a fulltime representative from the Student Service office living here in Denver. She will be at the game on Friday to answer questions for parents and future students. She will be set up in the back room of Stoney’s with information on attending OU. If you or someone you know is looking at OU, please stop by to get all your questions answered!
In the next couple of weeks, we will be sending information on how you or someone you know can apply for our 2013-2014 scholarships. Currently, we are looking for volunteers to be a part of the scholarship committee. If you are interested, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
. The time commitment is minimal and will consist of following up with applicants, communicating with the University and meeting in May to review the submissions and pick the recipients.

Is someone you know thinking about attending OU? If so, mark this date down in your calendar: Wednesday, March 13th.
