HELLO HUSKER FRIENDS & FANS!
This year has been unique, to say the very least. We’ve been thrown into all kinds of change and chaos. We hope everyone is healthy and safe. Finding a silver lining this year has been a struggle, but at last…we have HUSKER FOOTBALL and our red burns brighter.
Unfortunately, this year we will not be holding our traditional watch parties at Paddy’s. We’re sad about that but feel a great responsibility for the health and safety of our Oregonians for Nebraska family. Paddy’s will, however, be showing the games if you would like to watch in the restaurant. We’re betting you’ll run into a Cornhusker fanatic or two.
The main mission of the Oregonians for Nebraska is to raise money to fund our annual scholarship for a student from Oregon or Southwest Washington to attend the University of Nebraska. We usually accomplish that by selling memberships and raffle tickets. Since we aren’t having watch parties or selling raffle tickets, we had to get creative.
Have you ever wanted Nebraska Cornhusker football season tickets? Now’s your chance! You can help support the Oregonians for Nebraska and Nebraska student athletes by becoming a member of the OR4NE. For a small membership fee of $30 (this covers both new memberships and renewals...and if you’re feeling generous, add an extra donation), you’ll be entered into a drawing to be one of 6 lucky, virtual season ticket holders. Wait, what!? We’ll draw six members who will each get a cutout of themselves (or a family member, friend, or pet) in Memorial Stadium for all home games. The first two we draw have the choice of a full cutout in the Tunnel Walk or a cutout in the stadium with the possibility to be seen on TV. So, you can’t be there in person and the tickets are virtual, but hey! …you’ll still be able to brag about being a season ticket holder! This drawing will be held Oct 22nd and the winners will be notified by phone.
Join us every Saturday before the game! Long time OR4NE board members, Steve Todd and John Schulling, will be hosting a Zoom Husker Huddle. The link will be provided in the email blast a few days before each game. Hop on to discuss all things Husker Football. A fun time is sure to be had by all!
We’ll be looking for your fun Husker photos, too. Watch our Facebook posts so you can share your Husker passion with our followers.
GO BIG RED!
