Saturday, Feb. 21, 2009 | Tailgate as of 3pm | Game starts at 7:30pm
ORACLE Arena - Oakland
For ticket information please scroll down
Here are the details and lineup for Saturday:
3:00 p.m. - Tailgating. We'll have hot dogs and burgers, and chips and drinks of all kinds so people can come early and mingle. Meet in Lot A on the North Side of the Coliseum. Map. When you enter the stadium parking lot, be sure to tell the attendant you're with "Georgetown Alumni". If you come before 4 pm, you should get in free (otherwise the standard parking rate of $15 applies). Look for a blue pathfinder with a Georgetown flag. If you are coming to the tailgate, please RSVP to gtown_alumni_norcal_treasurer@
4:30-5:00 p.m. - Raffle. The Warriors will be stopping by our Tailgate to raffle off some items for us. Don't miss it!
6:00 p.m. SHARP - Courtside Shootaround. We'll meet at the North Entrance of the Arena by Parking Lot D for the shootaround. Go inside the doors and there will be a Warriors rep immediately inside the turnstile (right by Sections 121/122) who will take us down to the court to watch the shootaround. If you come later than 15 minutes after the doors open, you won't be able to participate in the shootaround, so please be on time! There will be no exceptions. If you're at the tailgate, we'll shut down and move over to the shootaround just before six.
6:45-7:30 p.m. - Find your seats, get drinks and food, etc.
7:30 p.m. - Gametime!
Some caveats from the Warriors about the shootaround:
- 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. Last year Jeff Green came to us, but we can't make any promises that this will happen again. We're certainly hoping it will though!
- Yelling at the players to try to get them to come over is not allowed.
Please note - - if you have tickets to the game by some other means (e.g., you're a season ticket holder), you can still enjoy any of the activities we've arranged. Just follow the directions posted and enjoy!
Here's to another great Club of Northern California event!!!
Please join us as we welcome former GU Hoops star Jeff Green to the Bay Area as he and his Oklahoma City Thunder come to town to play the Warriors. Through a special arrangement with the Warriors, you'll be treated to a once-in-a-lifetime event you won't want to miss (well maybe twice in a lifetime for all those who attended last year's amazing event!)
Last year's event was exceptional with more than 250 local alumni attending. We started tailgating in the parking lot and catching up on old times while we distributed some custom Georgetown Club of Northern California t-shirts. After being well taken care of by the Warriors hospitality staff we got to sit courtside for about 45 minutes while Jeff warmed up. Jeff not only came over into the Hoya crowd and hung out for 20-30 minutes signing autographs, signing some of those same custom t-shirts, taking pictures with the kids, he really made us proud to be Hoyas on so many levels.
