Where will you watch the Huskers first game of the new season? (5 pm AZ time)
Huskers N Arizona’s “Game Day” for September 2nd is at Max Sports Grille in Scottsdale. (Our “Game Day’ is when we feature specific watch-site(s) to encourage a really big turnout at the featured site(s) of the week. Duke Nguyen, the owner of Max is fired up for the first game of the season and plans some exciting give-aways!
Jim Ebel one of the owners of Two Brothers Tap House gave us the following good news:
“David Slattery, a fellow Husker who attended the HNA membership meeting is preparing to build a large hotel in the block just south of the Tap House. He has an outdoor parking lot with 32 parking slots and said we could use it for game days. I would like to offer it to HNA members as a perk at no cost for watching the game @ the Tap House. We will have signs posted on the lot entrances. It’s less than a block walk to the Tap House.”
Recently our club president, Roger Lindstrom* (owner of Moon Valley Grill) was contacted by members of a Huskers-oriented non-profit organization called “Nebraska Greats Foundation.” The are coming to Phoenix and one of their stops will be to have a Meet ‘n’ Greet with our members at Moon Valley Grill on September 6th at 5:30 p.m. Eric Crouch, Jerry Murtaugh, Bruce Mathison, and some other former players will be there to visit, sign autographs, take pictures and promote awareness of their foundation. “Nebraska Greats Foundation provides financial assistance to former Nebraska collegiate athletes who, as a result of a medical challenge, have exhausted both their insurance and personal resources.”
Our Board talked it over and felt their mission is a worthy one, and voted to award them a donation of $1000, which was presented to Bruce Mathison at our annual membership meeting Saturday, August 5. Now that’s Nebraska spirit!
*Maybe some of our younger members don’t know that Roger Lindstrom played wingback at UNL during 1983-1985

Calling All Huskers Golfers!!
Huskers N Arizona is looking to recruit as many Husker golfers as possible to play in the Big Ten Golf Classic on Saturday, May 20th 2017 at Troon North Golf Club. The Big Ten Golf Classic promises to be a fun day of golf and Big Ten camaraderie for all who participate while benefiting the Make-A-Wish® Arizona and Big Ten Scholarship funds.
The BIG 10 GOLF CLASSIC SCHOLARSHIP will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place schools which totals $3,000. The remaining tournament proceeds will be awarded to Make-A-Wish® Arizona which makes dreams come true for children with life-threatening medical conditions. In 2016, the Big Ten Golf Classic raised over $10,000 for scholarship and charities.
In 2011, Nebraska’s first year in the Big Ten, Nebraska had 30 players participate in the Big Ten Golf Classic and we came in first place. Since then, Nebraska’s participation has slowly declined, with only 14 golfers playing in the 2016 tournament and we have come in 2nd and 3rd over the last few years, due to lack of Husker participation. Ohio State has won the tournament for the last 3 years largely due to their participation averaging around 35 players every year. We think it is time for the Huskers to dethrone the Buckeyes!
The scoring is based on how many players are supporting a specific University, so the more players we have to represent Nebraska, the more chance we have to win the $1500 scholarship for the University of Nebraska. Please remember that The Big Ten Golf Classic is a non-profit golf tournament, with all the proceeds going to Make-A-Wish Arizona.
So Husker Fans, please sign up online at http://www.bigtengolfclassic.com to support this great event and bring the Big Ten Golf Classic trophy back to the Nebraska Cornhuskers!
