Dallas Mavericks vs. Sacramento Kings, April 4, 2017

Aggies,
On Tuesday April 4th @ 7:30 PM, the Sacramento A&M Club is getting together to watch a Sacramento Kings vs. Dallas Mavericks NBA game at the new Golden 1 Center.  This will be a great opportunity to get together with fellow Aggies ahead of Aggie Muster.

 

Tickets for the game will include Free Throws on the court after the game AND a group picture on the court.  Tickets start at $22.  You can purchase tickets through our special SAMC Ticket Portal.
Promo Code: aggies

 

With this purchase system, we may not sit together, but will have the opportunity to get together after the game on the court.  If we all select the same purchase options, we may be close to each other.  I suggest selecting one of the 2 options:
  • For upper deck, select “Upper Corner, $22.00 Group – Tier G
  • For lower deck, select “Lower Inner Baseline, $51.00 Group – Tier G
Please contact our club president, David Sedei, for further questions.

 

Hope everyone is having a Happy New Year!!

Sacramento Area Texas A&M Club Endowment Scholarship

foundation

Aggies!  I am proud to announce the establishment of our very own endowment scholarship in partnership with the Texas A&M Foundation.  The plans and goals for the endowment were in place and announced during the 2016 local Aggie Muster ceremony.  The account is now finalized and we can begin contributing to this great cause.  The scholarship fund creates a lasting legacy for our club by benefiting future Aggies from out of state wanting to attend our great University.

We are now on a mission to fully fund the $25,000 principal to allow our club to distribute a $1000 scholarship every year for life!  The foundation allows up to 5 years to meet the goal, but I believe we can do this much sooner.  As soon as we meet our goal, we can begin helping students.  The fund was established with contributions from our club scholarship fund given Aggies over the past several years + a generous contribution during Muster.

Texas A&M Gymnastics Team in Sacramento

The Texas A&M Gymnastics team will be in Sacramento for the NAIGC National Championships.  This is a great opportunity for our club members to come out and support our school.  It is rare that we can support A&M in our own city, so we should take advantage of this.

Competition will take place in the Sacramento Convention Center April 14-16, 2016.

We compete Thursday and competition begins at 1:10! That’s Session 2 on the meet schedule.

Bowl Game Watching Party

Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl in Nashville

Howdy Aggies!

The 18th annual Music City Bowl game in Nashville pits the SEC Texas A&M Aggies against the ACC Louisville Cardinals in a holiday celebration at Nissan Stadium on Wednesday, December 30 at 4:00pm (local time).

Debbie Quintana has opened up her house to the Sacramento A&M Club, so we can get together with fellow Aggies and watch a classic football game.  If anyone has been to a game watching party at Debbie’s house in the past, you know it is a great time. I have a feeling we will be busting out the Aggie War Hymn between the 3rd and final quarter.  The club will provide drinks and dinner. Debbie has graciously volunteered to make a couple batches of chili w/cornbread for the event (Chili Verde & TX Chili).  If anyone would like to contribute a side dish, please coordinate directly with Debbie.

Debbie’s house will be open 30 minutes prior to kickoff for some pre-game drinks and to get fired up for the game.

Please RSVP directly to Debbie (debquintana@yahoo.com or cell: 916-295-6734) with the number of people attending. You must RSVP by Sunday, December 27, so we will have time to get the right amount of food and drinks. When you RSVP Debbie will give you directions to her house.

Gig’em Aggies!
