These are great times for Spartans everywhere, aren't they? While the go greens have always been followed by friendly go whites, there seems to be just a tad bit more spirit in those exchanges these days. Any why shouldn't they? We have so much to be proud of! It's not just the recent success of our Big Ten Champion football AND men's/women's basketball teams. And not just because we have the best president, faculty, students, alumni, AD and coaches in the land. I think it's more to do with the pride and integrity in how Spartans pursue and accomplish great things wherever we are and in whatever we do. Well, it's no different with our amazing Spartan family out here in Colorado. We're excited you're here!! Read on for more info...
The lowdown on Spartan game watches
We meet up at the Blake St Tavern to watch all of our games with fellow Spartan fans and alumni. We have large groups for every football game, the bigger basketball games, and other planned and unplanned social activities. Regardless of the size of the group, our game watches are a great chance to get to know other Spartans in the area, while soaking in the greatness of our sports teams. For each football game, we set up a booth where we sell and raffle away our "Colorado Spartans" gear that has become a hit with Spartans from all over the country. We have short and long sleeve T shirts, sweatshirts, 1/2 zip jackets, bumper stickers, pint glasses, frisbees, and other goodies. The proceeds from our raffles and gear sales help fund Colorado students go to MSU through our club scholarship. These are great ways to get to know other alumni out here in Colorado while giving back to the school that we love.
The Blake Street Tavern is located at 2301 Blake Street, Downtown Denver - www.blakestreettavern.com
Spartoberfest IV - another great event in the books
Our fourth annual craft beer excursion took place on November 1 (our bye week), and a great time was had by all! We had a completely full luxury motorcoach, and managed to enjoy 4 excellent breweries in the Springs area. Next year's event is tentatively scheduled for a return to the Ft Collins area on Halloween, but ideas and suggestions are always welcome!
