November Newsletter, Veteran’s Day and OU-Baylor edition

Saluting Our Military Sooners
Words cannot express the appreciation for all that our veterans have done to make this the greatest country in the world. From the OU Club of Colorado, we say thank you to all those that have served and those that are currently serving.

Last year, OU honored Bob Kalsu. He earned All-America honors in 1967 as an offensive tackle while helping the Sooners to a Big 8 Championship. Kalsu was selected in the eighth round of the NFL Draft by the Buffalo Bills in 1968, but his professional career was cut short. Kalsu was called to join the U.S. Army’s highly decorated 101st Airborne Division. On July 21, 1970, he was killed by North Vietnamese mortar fire. He was the only pro football player to be killed during the Vietnam Conflict.

NOW is the Time to Pack the House
The OU Club of Colorado is excited to announce that our Associate Vice President for the Alumni Association, JP Audas will be making his first ever appearance at our watch party. JP received his undergraduate degree from OU in 1987 and has been an OU employee since 1993. During this time, he has recruited and worked with students, developed relationships with alumni & friends in his role as an OU fundraiser. So, come on out to Stoney’s on Saturday and let’s show JP why we have the best alumni club in the entire nation! Game starts at 6pm, but come early to claim your front row seat for the Baylor Beat Down!

Upcoming Sooner Saturday at Stoney’s- OU vs Baylor
Your OU Club of Colorado is on a pace to set a new attendance record for this season. From the 85 strong that watched OU thrash the Cyclones to the 625 that supported the Sooners even in non-win (never a loss) to saxeT, we have continued to have great crowds. With a prime time slot, the Sooners head to Waco where Lee Corso will no doubt slip on the bear head for his pick. Your club officers will be at Stoney’s starting at 4pm. Thank you for your donations through membership dues and t-shirt purchases. We still have t-shirts for sell and they make wonderful holiday gifts! You will also have the chance to purchase additional raffle tickets for a very special giveaway, which was donated by a very generous club member. Coors Light will also be on hand with a very awesome prize for one lucky Sooner fan. With all of this excitement, you have no excuses not to make it out for the game. See you Saturday for OU vs Baylor in a prime-time match up.  Game Time is 6p Mountain Time, but again, we recommend you all showing up early for the best seats!
