Record Breaking Season for the OU Club of Colorado 
While the season of destiny did not turn out as we had hoped, hats off to the football team for a great year. Could not be more proud to be a Sooner! A successful season on the field ties directly to a successful season off the field for the OU Club of Colorado. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors Stoney’s Bar & Grill, Coors Light, Patron, Sooner Legends Hotel, and Sooner Spectator Magazine and the generosity of our alumni members from Colorado, we once again raised over $10,000 for scholarships. I know I speak on behalf of the other officers when I say, I could not be more proud of your dedication to our future Sooners.

Also, our attendance at Stoney’s, for the entire year, broke 5000 for the first time in our five year history with the bar. I am not sure what the number would be of gallons of beer consumed, but I am sure it is enough to make the Coors family want to hug each one of us. Special shout out goes to our to our hosts, Stoney and Will as well as VJ Aaron. Thanks for making this the best gameday experience outside of Owen Field in the nation.

Basketball Brings Excitement to 2016
While we only had 8 Sooner fans out for Big Monday on January 4 versus our nemesis Chalk Rock Hayjawks, the Sooner men’s basketball team proved they are final four worthy by taking KU the distance in 3 overtimes. Pretty sure we are going to beat that team like a drum in Norman. Our 8 fans held their own against the 300+ Jayhawk fans. We would love to see more fans out to support basketball.

Here are five reasons why you should consider joining us at Stoney’s for a Sooner basketball experience….

1) You can show up 5 minutes after the game has started and have a guaranteed seat.
2) Same great beer specials with the 2015-16 membership card.
3) Two hour investment rather than a six hour investment with football.
4) Neither I or Daniel “D-Day” Dayton is performing karaoke on the microphone.
5) Because outside of men’s gymnastics, this is out best chance for a National Championship this year.

Basketball Watch Party Dates:
Saturday, January 30, 3pm vs. LSU
Saturday, February 13, 12pm vs Kansas
Saturday, February 27, 12pm vs saxeT
March 9-12, Big XII Tournament, Time TBD

Sooner Squad in the Springs

Your #1 ranked OU men’s gymnastics team is coming to Colorado Springs for the Rocky Mountain Open Saturday, January 16 . The meet starts at 6pm MST. The team wants all OU fans to come out to the meet and share a great experience. The send off for the team will begin at 3pm MST in the lobby of the Hilton Garden Inn located at 1800 Briargate Parkway. Coach Mark Williams will introduce the team and coaches. After the meet, Sooner fans will have the opportunity to meet the team for dinner at a restaurant in the shopping center south of the Hilton that will be named tomorrow.

Come on out to support the Sooner team with the most national championships in school history!
