It’s Football Time in Colorado
Summer is winding down, the doldrums of the summer sports are coming to a close (thank goodness for the Olympics), blue and orange are dotting the Denver landscape, and the quest for 8 for your Oklahoma Sooners starts Saturday. The quest is also on for the OU Club of Colorado to maintain its reign as one of the best alumni chapters in the nation, which is the result of your amazing continued support. We once again will be raising money for scholarships. Last year we raised nearly $15,000 and are looking for another record-breaking year.
For our opener versus the (soon to be feller Big Twelver???) Houston, we will once again will be at our home away from home, Stoney’s. Game time is 10am MST and doors will open at 8am. Your OU Club of Colorado officers will be on hand to help sign you up for your 2016-17 memberships.
OUr Sponsors for 2016-17
I would like to share with you and thank our sponsors for the upcoming year. We start our seventh year with the best bar in all of Colorado, Stoney’s. They have expanded to 700 seated capacity and 1100 total capacity which means more seating for you! Thank you for year two to Coors Light and Blue Moon. Prices will still be $3.50 for CL and $4.50 for BM. We are delighted to add, for you craft beer lovers, Colorado Native’s India Pale Lager for $3.25 a bottle. We will again have some tremendous giveaways and one special giveaway at the end of the year.
Not a beer drinker? We are excited to offer more options for you liquor peeps out there. Brown-Forman joins us this year and with that comes three tremendous options; Heradurra Tequila, Finlandia Vodka, and Jack Daniels Whiskey. Whether it’s a mixed drink, or a shot, we will have weekly drink specials that are sure to satisfy your taste buds.
Lastly, we welcome another new sponsor, Mighty Swell. Beer or straight liquor not your cup of tea, Mighty Swell provides tasty sparkling cocktails that are making a new splash in Colorado. We may have a little surprise tasting for those of you planning to attend that first game.
We are delighted to again offer substantial discounts for our partners with Sooner Legends Hotel and Sooner Spectator Magazine with 10 percent of your stay when you show your membership card and $10 off the yearly subscription. We would not be successful without our sponsors and partners.
Meet & Greet with a Sooner Legend
The OU Club of Colorado is excited to bring you another Sooner legend. This QB trotted onto the field in 1985 after Troy Aikman went down versus our nemesis, Miami. Even though we lost that day, this magician of the wishbone guided a team on the ropes to our 6th national championship. That Sooner is none other than, Jamelle Holieway and he will be at Stoney’s for the biggest non-conference game of the season, OU vs “The” Ohio State University. He will be signing autographs prior to the game and will have some memorabilia available to purchase. Hell, we might even auction off a football signed by everyone’s favorite Sooner from 1977.
Don’t want to fight the crowds? You have the opportunity to meet with Jamelle in an exclusive lunch at 11:30am on September 17. Only 30 lucky Sooner fans have the opportunity to enjoy this opportunity. Spots are filling up fast, so email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your primo spot today!
I wanted to say a special THANK YOU to our officers that rotated off this past summer, Brandon Todd and Lori Taylor. We would not be THE most successful and fun alumni chapter in the nation without dedicated individual like them. We also welcome some newcomers to the team that puts on the largest watch party in the nation. These events would not happen if it were not for the great team here in Colorado. If you are interested in volunteering, please email email@example.com.
Our team hopes you will be out to as many games as possible to support the OU Club of Colorado and your Oklahoma Sooners. I encourage you to introduce yourself to as many Sooner fans as possible and don’t be afraid to pull up a chair and share in the excitement of another great football season.
See you Saturday!
