But, just in case you are already wishing it were football season already, we have some great news on a Fall, 2018 Road Trip to watch the Buckeyes.
What's better than a home Buckeye football game? Nothing, of course! But, coming in a very close 2nd, is an away game with lower ticket cost and a motor coach providing transportation to and from the game with 56 of your fellow West Michigan Buckeyes. Purdue, by voting these past few weeks, was the winner for Road Trip this year.  The best part - is that we did a Road Trip to Purdue in 2013 - and I think everyone will agree, that it was a wonderful, fun day of Buckeye Football with West Michigan Buckeyes.
Here's what 's on the table.  Our Club has the opportunity to purchase a block of tickets directly from Purdue for the October 20, 2018  OSU at Purdue Football Game.  This allows us to offer tickets to ANY of our West MI Buckeyes - you will not need to be a member of OSUAA to buy these tickets - but, below, you will see a discounted price to those who ARE Paid Members of our LOCAL OSU Alumni Club of West MI.  There is no limit to the number of tickets you may order, but the Bus Transportation is limited to the first 56 people who sign up and pay!
Game Time is still TBD - Remember West Layfayette, IN is Central Time -  it could be an 11:00 am / 2:30 or 7:00 pm Kick-Off (Purdue now has lights). And we won't know the exact time until later in the year (after the season begins?).  We can secure a 56 passenger Motor Coach Charter Bus which will depart the Grand Rapids area in the morning for the 4 hour ride to West Lafayette, IN and return the same evening. Hopefully Kick-Off time will allow our group Tailgate before Kick-Off, as we did in 2013 (utilizing some of our Engagement Money Reimbursement).
We are awaiting our Final Transportation Quote and checking to see if we can order tickets in more than one Price Group. If we can order tickets in all 3 Choices - you will be notified about making payment.  If we can order in only 2 Price Groups, we will take the 2 Price Groups with the most responses received by THIS THURSDAY, March 15.
Pricing is subject to some slight modifications until we receive our FINAL QUOTES.
Please, by this Thursday, March 15, respond via this link: Click Here  with your ticket choice.
