Hello Fellow Alumni!
The $100 million dollar America’s Cup “sail boats” have left the bay, the Athletics and Giants are finished until spring, Bart trains are running, and Kanye proposed to Kim in our very own AT&T park.  What could possibly entertain us now? Well, the Gonzaga Bay Area Alumni Chapter has some exciting news and events!
Sign up for our Newsletter! Our first one just went out (See Below), don’t miss the next one!  As our community has grown and changed over the last couple years, we need to modify and adapt our existing communication strategy to keep pace.  As such, we have implemented a monthly newsletter, as well as topic specific emails based on interest.   We have enlisted MailChimp, a reputable email management system, and will never give away/sell your information.  This is all very new to the chapter, so we welcome any suggestions and/or feedback you may have.
Gonzaga Basketball Game Watches: Gonzaga Basketball is back!  Ranked 15 in both AP and Coaches polls, we are in for another exciting season.  Further, we have secured a partnership with Pete’s Tavern in San Francisco to be our official Game Watch location.
  • Why?  We selected Pete’s Tavern because it is accessible from all parts of the Bay Area and throughout San Francisco with public transportation (BART, Muni, CalTrain) as well as lots of parking nearby on the street or in private lots.  Pete’s is located at 128 King St, San Francisco, CA 94107
  • Benefits?  For the first time, Pete’s will be offering the following specials at our Game Watches:

½ Price Wings
Discounted Beers
Discounted Well Drinks
More TBD, specials subject to change.

  • When?  The first game watch is WSU @ GU, November 21st @5:30PM.  To see all official game watches, visit our Chapter Calendar!

New Gonzaga Bay area Chapter Website: We are excited to now host our very own chapter specific website.  Here you can find out Chapter Calendar, containing everything from Game Watches to our annual Giants game!  Regular announcements and event recaps through our blog, and more!

Bay Area Chapter T-Shirts: Officially debuted last summer at the Giants game, these shirts are of premium quality and are available for only $20.  Order now to pick them up at Game Watches, or even have them shipped to you directly.  We will also have a small quantity available at each event for sale.  All proceeds remain with our chapter and go to funding discounted event prices and more!

Feedback Welcome!  We are always looking to improve our chapter, and meet the needs of our alumni.  Send us your feedback, comments, questions, or random musings.  We will get back to you in a short amount of time!

Thank you,

Gonzaga University Alumni Association: Bay Area Chapter
