Mothers Mass (5/22), Happy Hour (5/25), Padres, & The Shirt

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

It’s national championship season for the spring sports, and as we’ve (ahem) come to expect, there are quite a few of our beloved Irish teams competing. Having beaten the Air Force Academy in round one on Saturday, Irish Men’s Lacrosse will face ACC rival UNC on Sunday (5/22) – UNC was one of only two regular-season losses, so time to even things up. Our Women’s Lacrosse team also faces off against North Carolina in their national championship tournament bid. 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).

Another great weekend for Irish sports!

ND Rugby on Tuesday (3/8), Crew Classic (4/2-3)

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family!

This has been a great weekend for Irish sports! Women’s Basketball won their 3rd ACC title, Men’s Basketball pulled out a key victory in their bid for an ACC championship, and the #1-ranked ND Men’s Lacrosse team overcame a very good Maryland defense to win 9-4 in the OC. Having been fortunate enough to be at the lacrosse game, and at the Orange County Club’s fantastic post-game event, I can say that the Lacrosse team is not only fantastic on the field, but also off the field. My personal thanks to Coach Corrigan and his team for chatting with & posing for photos with my son and some of his friends. By the way, in case you weren’t aware, you can keep track of all Irish sports via the ND Athletics link: http://und.com.

Notre Dame Rugby in Town on Tuesday!
Tuesday, March 8th, 2016 @ 5PM
Manchester Valley Field, University of San Diego (USD map link)
The Notre Dame Rugby Team is in town, playing a match against USD as a warmup for the Parsegian Cup against Arizona at Stanford on Saturday. This is a fantastic opportunity to cheer an Irish team to victory in person. Hope you can make it!

2016 Crew Classic
April 1-3
Mission Bay, Crown Point Shores Park
It’s that time of year again! The ND Men’s Rowing team WILL BE HERE – April 1-3, 2016 for the San Diego Crew Classic. Rowing!! Eating!!! Socializing!!! 20 young men from Notre Dame will be out to compete with some of the best teams on the water for two days. There will be a hospitality tent for the team, alumni and friends – come out and join us. There are several ways YOU can help out!!!

HOST TEAM MEMBERS IN YOUR HOME: Can you host two-three of the men in your home for the weekend? If you live within 20 miles of Mission Bay and wouldn’t mind having a few crew team members crash at your place over the weekend, please let us know.

LOGISTICS OF THE WEEKEND: Are you willing to assist (pre-, during, or after the event) with the upcoming San Diego Crew Classic and the arrival of our Men’s Rowing team?

SPONSOR A PORTION OF THE WEEKEND: Be a Sponsor for the 2016 Crew Classic
Going back as far as we can recall, the Notre Dame Club of San Diego has hosted a tent at the annual Crew Classic on Mission Bay to provide our visiting Irish Crew Teams with a place to rest, fuel up, and socialize with the local Irish family. As the cost of providing this home-away from home has reached epic proportions, this year we’re asking for sponsorship help in funding the event. Here are some ideas for how you can help, but you’re welcome to “make your own sponsorship” as well.

  • “hydration sponsorship” – $50
  • “tent pole sponsorship” (10 poles available at $100 per pole)
  • “feed the crew” sponsorship for $200,
  • “cover the tent” at $1120
  • “be part of the team” — any amount is appreciated!

Bowl Game Watch (1/1), Fr. Joe’s Breakfast (2/6)

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family!

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas! However you plan to celebrate your New Year’s Eve, don’t forget that the Irish have a big game on New Year’s morning. If you’re lucky enough to be there, send us a photo via our twitter account @ndsandiego or via Facebook. For those of you staying in town, plan to join us at our two fantastic game watch locations, they’ll both be open and serving time-of-day-appropriate food and beverages. Finally, as we look further into 2016, consider joining Martin Holguin at another Saturday morning Breakfast serving opportunity at Fr. Joe’s villages. Have a great New Year everyone!

Fiesta Bowl Game Watch
Friday, January 1st, 10:00am (PT)
For two big-time teams within an easy half-day drive of each other, it’s surprising that our beloved Irish have only faced the Buckeyes five times in their history. Ohio State leads the series, having won three of those five, with the most recent being in the 2006 Fiesta Bowl. Perusing the stats.ncaa.org site, it appears that the Buckeyes are quite strong on scoring defense (#2) and passing efficiency defense (#6). Offensively though, they are rather unbalanced, with a #12 ranked rushing offense, but a #107 ranked passing offense. Clearly this will be a great test for our tough front-seven. The Buckeyes are currently 6.5-point favorites, but this game should be winnable — come Cheer, Cheer for Old Notre Dame with your local Irish family! Details on our two game watch locations are below:

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

Serve Meals at Fr. Joe’s Villages
Saturday, February 6th, 6:00am to 9:00am
Saturday, February 6th from 6am-9am the Club will serve breakfast to San Diego’s homeless at the St. Vincent de Paul Homeless Shelter in downtown San Diego. We would love to have you join us! – If you’re interested or if you would like more information please contact Martin Holguin at community@ndsandiego.org. After the serving, the group will probably head out for some coffee or breakfast downtown.
