Oct 20: MSU vs UM Game Watch

Wow! What a fantastic football win last weekend against Penn State! We had a small but mighty group at The Brick Yard in San Francisco watching together. Let’s carry the momentum through this weekend!

Aimee Wise (Game Watch Director), Chad Lesausky (Club Photographer), and I (Sara Sobon – President) will be at The Brick Yard this Saturday to host the biggest game watch of the football season; Michigan State University vs. University of Michigan. The game starts at 9:00 AM and we hope that you can join us for brunch to cheer on our Spartans!

The Brick Yard will have food and drink specials, and we will have great prizes that we will be raffling off to help support our scholarship fund! Raffle tickets will be sold for $5, $10, and $20, so please bring cash or you can Venmo one of the club’s board members. Some of the bigger prizes include a signed Jalen Watts-Jackson poster from the big MSU vs. UM football game in 2015, signed photos from other MSU football and basketball players, and a MSU themed woven afghan blanket.

Reservations recommended for the Game Watch, so call the Brick Yard to reserve your table.

In other club news, Aimee Wise and Katelyn Dunaski have graciously volunteered to help to support two of our open board roles: Game Watch Director and Community Service Events Director respectively. Welcome, Aimee & Katelyn!
