Duke Game Watch, Young Alumni HH, Domerpreneurs do Cider & More!

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

Just like that, it’s officially fall. As the students are now back in school and working hard, we’re also working hard to put together some great events. Read on for the details. We hope to see you at one of them!

Duke Game Watch!
Saturday, September 24th, 12:30 pm (Pacific Time)
This week, we have a battle of ACC 1-win-2-loss teams, but I’m pretty sure that’s where the similarities end. NDs losses come to #21 Texas and #8 MSU, while Duke’s losses were to Wake Forest and Northwestern. The Irish are averaging 38 points per game, while Duke is earning 25.3. Duke is also 0-3 on FGs this year with their Freshman kicker, while ND is 2-3. Duke does have better stats for defense, with 25 tackles for loss (102 yards) vs. the Irish 14 TFL (36 yards). Bottom line, the Irish are 20-point favorites heading into this home game, so it should be an enjoyable victory. Also of note, the Duke club will be joining our Downtown/EVT game watch this week, so we’ll have the opportunity to display the ND spirit first-hand to our ACC competitors. Kickoff time is perfect for having some great food among friends and watching a football game, so please join us at one of our two fantastic locations. You don’t need to be a club member, ND grad or even San Diego resident to join us, you just need to love ND football. Here’s how to find us: Prospect Bar & Grill – Downtown La Jolla • East Village Tavern + Bowl – Downtown San Diego

Halloween Party for Kids at Fr. Joe’s Village
Friday, October 28th, 7:00pm to 10:00pm
Domer Friends and Families, we need your help and support for our next community outreach event. On October 28, Friday, at the Father Joe Village downtown San Diego (Imperial Ave) we will put on a Halloween Themed celebration for homeless and disadvantaged teens. We need a team that is willing to be creative to decorate the hall, manage the food line, and also set up a craft table full of supplies to make your own masquerade mask. We are looking at 60 to 70 total people with 50 teens and the rest support staff and volunteers. Having fun is authorized, making a positive influence on these challenged teens is welcomed, and giving this group of party goers a few hours of normalcy is the goal. We need food, music, and people the day of the event willing to enjoy
the evening (In costume would be great!). if you’re interested in volunteering or if you would like more information please contact Martin Holguin MBA ’14 at community@ndsandiego.org.

Stops along the crawl will include Basic (starting point), EVTB, Knotty Barrel, Bootlegger, Social Tap, The Deck at Moonshine Flats (In that order). Your $15 ($20 at the door) includes pizza at Basic, plus a specialty drink at TWO different pub crawl locations, plus drink specials at ALL locations, plus a raffle ticket for prizes at ALL locations, plus a souvenir item (limited to the first 100 people that register so register soon!) plus an afternoon of fun with awesome young professional peeps in San Diego! The event will probably max out their 150 person capacity, so get your registration in early. You do not need to be officially a young alum to participate, by the way.

MSU Game Watch, Finance, Seniors, Community and More!

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

I hope you’re all enjoying the cooler weather in this second week of September. Lots of great events coming up so I’ll get right to it…

Michigan State Game Watch!
Saturday, September 17th, 4:30 pm (Pacific Time)
After winning a … winnable game vs. Nevada, the Irish have another chance to prove themselves against familiar opponent and 12th-ranked Michigan State. MSU has only one game under their belt this year, a 28-13 win over Furman, so hard to draw much conclusion from their season-to-date stats (except perhaps that MSU is not Alabama). In any case, ND-MSU games more often than not provide some great moments – bet that MSU pulls out a trick play or two, so we’ll get to see how this young Irish defense responds. Game time is perfect for having some great food among friends and watching a football game, so please join us at one of our two fantastic locations. You don’t need to be a club member, ND grad or even San Diego resident to join us, you just need to love ND football. Here’s how to find us: Prospect Bar & Grill – Downtown La Jolla • East Village Tavern + Bowl – Downtown San Diego

Nevada Game Watch, ND Finance Group, Domerpreneurs and More!

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

As they say these days, “well, that just happened.” While it’s always tough to lose, the Irish made last week’s game exciting to the end. There are more tough games ahead of us, but as our young defense gains game experience, they’ll no-doubt improve. On the bright side, the offense gave up zero turnovers, and the place-kicking game seems much more of a sure-thing (lucky blocks aside). So, it’s early in the season and there’s lots of excitement ahead. Come out and join us for a game watch or two, and we’d also love to have you at one of our other great events … read on for those details! Before I let you go though, one last note … if you are an ND grad, and would like to help recruit future classes by helping the club with a college fair at a local high school, please drop me an email at admissions.volunteers@ndsandiego.org. Events are almost all in October, with the exception of Carlsbad HS which is coming up on Tuesday, 9/20. Thanks!

Nevada Game Watch!
Saturday, September 10th, 12:30 pm (Pacific Time)
After a tough game on Sunday and a short week between games, our beloved Irish return home to play a beatable Nevada team. In 2015, Nevada was 7-6 with losses to the likes of UNLV and Utah State. Also, this past Saturday, they gave up 383 rushing yards and a 24-10 halftime lead to Cal Poly before squeaking by in OT 30-27. So…I’m not really predicting a nail-biter this week, but I am definitely recommending that you come out and join your local ND family at one of our two amazing game watch locations. You don’t need to be a club member, ND grad or even San Diego resident to join us, you just need to love ND football. Here’s how to find us: Prospect Bar & Grill – Downtown La Jolla • East Village Tavern + Bowl – Downtown San Diego

Texas Game Watch, Sr. Alum Luncheon, Fall Crawl & Fr. Joe’s Halloween

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

The summer is coming to an end, Notre Dame has started classes, and our beloved Irish football team returns to the gridiron this weekend! We had some great summer events, thanks to all of you who were able to attend, and thanks to those who helped organize them! In addition to game watches, we have some other fabulous events coming up, and as usual we hope you’ll be able to join your local Notre Dame family at one of them. The Texas game is at an odd time (4:30pm on Sunday), but our loyal game watch establishments are nevertheless ready to welcome you all to kick off the season in style. More details follow. See you soon!

Texas Game Watch!
Sunday, September 4th, 4:30 pm (Pacific Time)
Messin' With TexasA big kudos to the Austin club for the statement T-Shirt pictured at left! Our beloved Irish kick off the season with a chance to prove themselves worthy of their #10 ranking. Yes, we pounded Texas at home 38-3 in last year’s season opener, and yes, we are 9-2 all time. Consider this though — the Longhorns went on to beat then #10 Oklahoma 24-17, and then #18 Baylor 23-17 at home. This year, we’ll be playing Texas in their house, with a 3.5 point spread. This could be a nail-biter so come out and share the emotional roller coaster with your fellow family members. We’re back home again at our two game-watch locations–you probably know where they are, but just in case (we love new game-watchers and visitors from out of town!)

The Mission of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego provides a “home away from home” for families with children being treated for serious, often life-threatening conditions at local hospitals. Their vision is to provide a welcoming and convenient home base where families may take care of their basic needs so they can better focus on what really matters: caring for their critically ill or injured child.

Families spend long days and nights at the hospital with their child. When they come back to their “home away from home,” a hot nutritious meal gives these exhausted and overwhelmed families the chance to relax and connect with others before the next day starts. The Mission of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego provides a “home away from home” for families with children being treated for serious, often life-threatening conditions at local hospitals. Their vision is to provide a welcoming and convenient home base where families may take care of their basic needs so they can better focus on what really matters: caring for their critically ill or injured child.

GO IRISH!

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

The women beat Northwestern in the first round 15-3, and will play this next game at North Carolina, 10am on Saturday (5/21). The Softball team will play their first round on Friday (5/20) vs. Miami of OH. The Men’s Lacrosse team includes San Diego players Senior Captain Edwin “Eddy” Glazener (Bishop’s) and Junior Chris Carter (Torrey Pines) and the Softball team includes Junior Rachel Nasland (Torrey Pines) and Sophomore Sara White (Rancho Bernardo).

Men’s Sweet 16 BB Gamewatch (Friday, 4:27pm), EVT

MARCH MADNESS CONTINUES!!!

Men’s Basketball Game Watch
Friday, March 25th, 4:27pm (PT)
After a last-second tip-in to take down Stephen F. Austin last week, the Irish have found themselves in the Sweet Sixteen for the second year in a row. We will be hosting a game watch at East Village Tavern + Bowl in downtown San Diego, and encourage anyone interested to join in cheering on the Irish as they take on Wisconsin.

EVT offers plenty of TV screens, game sound, tasty food and just generally a great atmosphere for cheering on our Irish to victory. For these tournament games, it’s best to arrive early if you want your choice of seats, as they do fill up fast!
