BEAT  MichganS  BASH




Several years ago, when the season was extended, we had to move our

Annual BEAT M*ch*g*n BASH to the Monday of a very busy week of Thanksgiving.

With both the M*ch*g*n  and  MSU games in November this year,

we are going to "Mash up the Bash" a bit.

As the Buckeyes get ready for a rematch with the Spartans at MSU on Saturday, November 8,

...  The OSU Alumni Club of West Michigan…

will host a  "BEAT  MichganS  BASH" on the evening of Friday November 7.

We will once again have the pleasure of our "Dynamic #7 Duo" of Cornelius Green and our own Sonny Gordon.  Dick Wakefield ( who, so many of us enjoyed at the 2013 Beat M*ch*g*n BASH) is also hoping to join us again!!

The stories that these 3 great Buckeyes, from 3 different decades of Buckeye Football, will share with us - will be an evening not to miss!

As we finalize the venue location and more details, we need your help now!                                   

We need to have an idea of expected number of people - so we can secure the best location for this new, "Mashed-up-Bash".

Most likely will be in the Grand Rapids area, usually around 6:00 - 9:00 pm, possible nominal cost of $10 - $15 per person with an array of Appetizers and a Cash Bar.

Before Friday of this week (Oct 10), please use the RSVP link, below, and let us know that you hope to attend the  "BEAT  MichganS  BASH" on the evening of Friday November 7, 2014.

 (this is nothing in stone - just trying to gather an estimate of number of attendees).
