What Local Hoyas Are Up To...

Yuri's Night - sponsored by Kate McGunigal '03

I wanted to reach out to about an event that I am helping with called Yuri's Night, Bay Area. Yuri's Night is a celebration of space exploration—and mankind's curiosity, scientific ingenuity, technical achievements, and spirit of collaboration that have made it all possible. A major part of Yuri's Night is to engage people with cutting edge, forward-looking technologies, and this year's event focuses on sustainability and clean energy through the theme Radical Technology for a Sustainable Future. We're looking for interactive displays including technology demos, models, and prototypes. If your company or research group has technology to showcase or you know someone who does, please contact us at yn-tech-expo@googlegroups.com.

Yuri's Night, San Francisco Bay Area at a glance:

Where: NASA Ames Research Center;

When: April 12, 2008, 2pm to 2am;

Who: 8000 participants and 200 VIPs;

Jeff Green / Warriors Courtside Shoot Around Details

All participants must be at the North Entrance (by parking lot D) to the Arena 90 minutes prior to tip-off (when doors open). It is essential that you be on time. Anyone who arrives later than 15 minutes after doors open will not be able to come down to the court to watch the shootaround.

As soon as the doors to the Arena open, the group can come in and get their tickets scanned. A Warriors rep will be immediately inside the turnstile (outside sections 121-122), and will take the group down to watch warm-ups from courtside for 30 minutes. At the conclusion of the shoot around, we will bring the group back up to the main concourse, where you can get food or go to your seats for the game.

Some other very important points:

- No backpacks or other large bags are allowed into the arena, for security reasons.
- No outside food or drink can be brought into the arena.
- No flash cameras or video cameras are allowed into the arena.
- When sitting courtside for the shootaround, everyone must stay in his or her seat for the entire half-hour.
- Autographs are not part of the program, unless a player takes it upon himself to come over to the group.
- Yelling at the players to try to get them to come over is not allowed.

Sorry for all of the rules, but we need to let the players prepare for the game as they choose, they have to be followed. This will still be a lot of fun for the kids and the kid inside all of us, and will go very smoothly, if we follow these guidelines.

Jeff Green / Warriors Event Details - Page 2

Please plan to wear a Georgetown T-shirt to show your support for Jeff Green. If you have one, please wear a gray GU shirt or pick up a new GU Club of Northern California shirt, specially designed for this game.

Festivities will kick off with an early, casual tailgate at 4:00 p.m. We’ll be parked in the A Lot, just outside of D Gate. This is the parking lot on the North side of the arena/coliseum.

Here’s a map of the parking lot

If you are coming from BART, simply cross over the BART Bridge and then walk down the ramp on your right and follow the sidewalk around the coliseum until you get to D Gate. Then turn towards the parking lot and look for a white Georgetown flag next to a Silver Pathfinder. We''ll have plenty of Hoya paraphernalia, so you won't be able to miss us. We’ll hang out and tailgate until 5:10 p.m.

All other festivities start at 5:15 p.m. Below is the schedule of events:

  • 5:15 p.m. - Arrive at the North Entrance of Oracle Arena where a Warriors rep. will meet the group and get bracelets distributed for early entry.
  • 5:30-6:00 - GU Pre-game mixer in Club 200.
  • 6:00-6:30 - We will usher the group from the mixer down to the Shoot Around. Please note the guidelines for the Shoot Around. Wave hello to Jeff Green. Yell Hoya Saxa! If people arrive at 6:00 for the Shoot Around, please follow the directions below.
  • 6:30-7:30 - Get some food, hang out in the Arena, network with new and old friends.
  • 7:30 p.m. - Play ball
Please note: For anyone who cannot make the 5:15 p.m. arrival, a Warriors rep. will be catching stragglers until 6:00 p.m. Upon arrival, please let the rep know you are here for the Georgetown Alumni Mixer. All people who arrive at 6:00 p.m. will be ushered down to the Shoot Around. You need to be at at the North Entrance (by parking lot D) by 6:00 pm to attend the Shoot Around. No exceptions.

If you can’t figure this all out for some reason, you can call Drew McGowan’s cell at (415) 637-5732.

About Us / Contact Us

The Georgetown Club of Northern California aims to provide San Francisco Bay Area alumni with opportunities to connect with fellow Georgetown alumni, faculty and friends.

The Club is open to alumni from all schools of the University including undergraduate, graduate, MBA, Law and the Medical School, as well as other interested parties.
