It should be a great event. Eighty people registered so far, and we still have eight books for sale.
|28 weeks 3 days ago||Game day||
DC alumni club president here. FYI we are selling tickets to the game until Sunday at http://www.umdc.org the alumni association also is hosting a ticketed tailgate that starts at five. Through the umterps site you can buy parking in advance.
I'm a Maryland season ticket holder and it is a fun game day experience. Very friendly fans who are happy to be a part of the big ten for football.
We are also considering doing one bus from DC but that is still in the works.
So far we have sold over 2,000 tickets. This game will be a very fun time.
|45 weeks 6 days ago||Funds||
No proceeds from the auction will go to hail and unite.
The funds go to a 25k need and merit based scholarship and a 10k leads scholarship.
Happy bidding! Thanks!

Hi, in DC, Pour House and Buffalo Billiards are replaced by RFD now.
|2 years 18 weeks ago||DC Trip||
DC Trip has about a hundred sold tickets. NYC has about fifty.
Experience with Jared and SPW so far has been great.
We will be a large and loud group!

FYI we may be adding a fourth bar in the next week, in time for the Notre Dame game.

The alumni dues do a lot of good...and should be considered as a way to help other students and graduates while also getting a few perks for yourself.
Dues help provide scholarships to aspiring Wolverines.
They fund a career office that helps both graduates (like you) with finding opportunities/development, and they connect current students with alumni for internships
The dues directly aid with funding programming in your city with your local club. For instance: Last year the DC club was able to bring in Brian Cook to speak to our members thanks to this money.
|2 years 38 weeks ago||Maryland||
I feel a little silly buying Maryland season tickets last week, given that U-M won't be coming to town until 2015. I guess I'll have some amazing seats by the time they do...
With OSU/MSU away every other year, that provides an automatic easier schedule/harder schedule every other year.
|2 years 44 weeks ago||Monday||
I'm going in just for Monday (assuming all goes well Saturday). I'll be staying downtown.
Where will all the Michigan folks be celebrating during the day and after work prior to the game?
The Atlanta alumni club recommends Whitehall Tavern and Pepperoni's, neither of which are near downtown.
Edit: found this on the final four website?
Gibney’s Pub -- Michigan
Dishing out drinks and American pub fare since 1997, Gibney’s is the local neighborhood bar in Downtown Atlanta. Our Keno, pool tables, shuffleboard, jukebox, and multiple video games make Gibney’s the perfect place to grab a cold one (or two or three) and relax. Our famous Chili Frito Pie and New York thin crust pizza will have you coming back again and again!

The Congressional Breakfast is a really unique event. Here is who attends:
About 30 different representatives from UM, including Mary Sue Coleman. Mary Sue Coleman always speaks, and gives an update of what's happening in Ann Arbor. Info you might not otherwise hear. In addition to Mary Sue, folks from various schools also attend. It's a way for the University to reach out to local alumni as well as members of Congress.
Around a dozen members of Congress or more, most of them representatives from southeastern Michigan, or senators. There are other members of Congress who attend as well.
This year, MI Governor Rick Snyder.
Steve Grafton & Mary Sue Coleman will speak, Gov Snyder will speak as the keynote, and the DC club President Charmaine Chan will speak as well. The Glee Club alumni perform.
All in all, about 400-500 people attend annually. The local club contributes $35,000 annually broken into two scholarships for high school seniors to attend UM. The event is far, far and away the big fundraiser for this scholarship fund. I encourage you to bid early and often.
Anyone, even if you are not attending, can bid here beginning 2/25: http://umdc2013auction.schoolauction.net/auction2013/
Any more questions I am happy to answer!

I don't get the black crown commercial. Clearly Bud is not in the taste market, but rather in the drink as many as you can market. But why point that out so obviously?

The DC Club is very, very excited about this event. A big thanks to Brian, MGoShoe, and Jacqueline the President of the NYC club for helping make this happen.
MGoShoe is correct, I am the person to speak with if you are interested in getting involved with the club. I'd love to hear from you expatriate, plus any others who are in DC and have any questions about the DC alumni club. http://www.umdc.org

Is every program in the country not named Iowa doing something different with injury prevention? Perhaps Iowa can hire someone who can work with strengthening ankles and knees for their players...

I lived in Birmingham AL for 7 years. I guarantee you that Auburn fans are rooting against Alabama every chance they get. There is nothing more than they would like to do than taunt their friends and coworkers on a Bama loss on Monday.
Their hatred and dislike for each other is beyond healthy
