K-State Football season is right around the corner. The Portland Powercats will be having watch parties for all games televised on cable or satellite. Watch parties will be held at Life of Riley Tavern, 300 NW 10th Ave, Portland, OR. We planning on having Boulevard beer specials and food specials for each Watch Party.
K-State has come out with a new online TV station: K-StateHD.tv that will televise a number of events including the first Football game vs Eastern Kentucky, 9/3/2011 at 4 pm. As of right now we will not have watch parties for the games broadcast online, but I am working to make that possible.
There are only definite TV time slots for two other games: 9/17 vs Kent State and 12/3 vs Iowa State. The Big XII tv contracts are set up so most gametimes and tv slots aren't set until 7-14 days before each game. I will send out watch party updates as soon as I get the gametime and tv information. A full football schedule can be found at K-Statesports.com.
I am looking for a few volunteers to offer to help set up and run watch parties. I have a 10 month old, so my time isn't as flexible as in years past. Responsibilities would include showing up about 30 minutes early and making sure we have enough tables in a group and having people sign in. Please repond to this email if you can help out.
If you know of any new K-Staters in the area or any who aren't receiving these emails, please respond to this email with their information and I will add them to the list.
