Our Annual Membership Meeting will be on Sunday, August 11th starting at 2 p.m. until approximately 4:30 p.m. at our newest watch site, Copper Blues Live at Desert Ridge (their 2nd Phoenix location). Please invite your Husker friends who plan to join to come too. We will be signing new and renewing members at the meeting. Having an annual meeting with our members is an important part of maintaining our non-profit status, so in addition to our speakers, there will be a brief business portion to our meeting.
Nebraska’s former center, Bill Lewis (who also played for the Cardinals, Raiders and Patriots) will be our speaker, talking about our upcoming season!!!
We will also have a review of Sean Callahan’s Top 40 Players for 2019 (video compiled from Sean’s blog by our member Dan Tweedy). Sean is the publisher of HuskerOnline and covers the Huskers for KFAB News, Big Red Wrap Up, and ABC Channel 7 in Omaha.
“Do I have to go to the meeting to sign up?”
No, you can join on our website at any time. The sooner you join, the sooner you will get your membership cards. However we had to wait until the watch-site contracts and game-day schedule were finalized, wait while they get printed , then mail them out, so it will not be immediate. There is a chance we may get membership cards by the meeting.
“I am confused as to where the meeting is, first it said Silver Cinema and now Copper Blues, which is it?”
Copper Blues Live at Desert Ridge (CB Live) did not become a watch-site until after the first e-blast went out. We wanted to give them the opportunity and exposure as our newest watch-site, plus it is a brand new location for them.
“ I have paid but haven’t received anything yet, when will I get my card?”
Normally, the sooner you join, the sooner you will get your membership cards. If you joined this spring, our Membership Chairperson was transitioning to another Board member who has since stepped down. Although there was nothing new to send, we still should have sent out a welcome letter and 2018-19 membership cards. Our apologies. For those who have joined/renewed in July, we had to wait until the watch-site contracts and game-day schedule were finalized to work out the Game Day schedule, then wait while the membership and punch cards got printed and shipped back to us. We are hopeful that we will have our new membership cards by the meeting. Thanks for your patience.
