January 2017 Newsletter

What A Fall
On behalf of the officers of the OU Club of Colorado, I wanted to thank you for your support this year. With our sponsors and memberships, we raised a little over $10,000 for scholarships. With the match from OU, this is $20,000 in our scholarship fund for future Sooners. If you know of any Colorado high school students interested in going to OU, please lave them reach out to our Rocky Moutain Recruiter, Carissa Cummins, at 720-308-0706 or carissa@ou.edu. Our scholarship committee will be meeting soon and there is still time to apply for the OU Club of Colorado Scholarship.

We had over 3500 come out to the watch parties this season. Special thanks to our officers that were there week in and week out to support the club and our members. Very special thanks to Jeff Farrer and Aaron Nelson (VJ Aaron) for running a great show this season. We hope you liked the changes this year and please keep your suggestions coming as we continue to make this experience the best fan experience in the nation.

We are excited for another great year and congrats to the Sugar Bowl Champion….Top 5 Finisher….SEC Butt Kickin’ Sooners!!!

Sooners in The Springs
We are excited to share that our Sooner NCAA national champion men’s gymnastics team and the National Champion OU Men’s Club team, will be competing in the Rocky Mountain Open gymnastics meet on THIS Saturday, Jan. 14, 2017.  As in previous years, the meet will be at the Air Force Academy and is scheduled to start at  7 p.m. The Hilton Garden Inn in Colorado Springs will be our Sooner headquarters. We will have a rally for the team Saturday afternoon in the lobby of the the Hilton prior to the teams departure to the Air Force Academy for the competition. Feel free to come out after 2 p.m. to cheer loud and prOUd.

This year we have a real opportunity for our teams to repeat as the 2017 national champions and we want to support the squad that has the most national championships in Sooner history!

Sooner Scoop
Our OU Club of Colorado friends in The Springs saw nearly 30 attendees for the Bedlam game. This is a great measure of success and a special shout out to Brittany Eagan for all her help and support making The Springs the second largest watch party on the state!

So, I was going to spotlight one of our officers this newsletter, but instead wanted to relay some exciting news courtesy of one of our officers….Dave Frazier. I am thrilled to share that Dave and his lovely wife Paige are expecting a little Sooner later this summer. Next time you see our VP of Finance, buy him a Sooner Magic shot!

While we are finished with football, anytime our Sooner teams are on TV, come on out to Stoney’s. If you have your membership cards, you can still get all of those great drink specials. Same goes for the OKC Thunder.

Make sure you keep checking out our social media outlets for updates on our spring and summer events.

OU Club of Colorado President
