2009 Bearcat Football Semi-Final Watch Party

It's time to cheer on the Bearcats as they take on California (PA) in Maryville for a chance to go onto the Championship!

The game is on Saturday December 5th at 7:30pm and will be televised on CBS College Sports.

The Central Iowa Alumni Chapter will be hosting a watch party for those that can't make it to Maryville to cheer the 'Cats on in person!

Unfortunately, our usual place, The Game, was booked up for Saturday so we had to pick an alternate! Please make sure you come to the right place! :)

Where: Over Time Sports Bar, 4810 86th Street, Urbandale, IA
When: Saturday December 5th, 7pm-Whenever (Kickoff at 7:30pm)
We will be in the back room but can spillover into the main part of the bar if needed.

Please email with questions!

But wait...there's more!

To raise money for our chapter scholarship fund we will be selling t-shirts for $15. The shirts will be gray and will have "Northwest Bearcats" with the paw logo on the chest pocket area and the sleeve will say "Central Iowa Alumni Chapter" also with a paw. The design is simple and will allow for many years of wear! We currently have 50 shirts in both regular and ladies styles on order.

We will have these shirts for sale at the watch party and all proceeds go to our scholarship fund! If you are unable to attend the watch party or are unable to secure a shirt of your size we will be putting in another order and can place yours at that time as well. Email with questions!

Please show your support for your local alumni chapter and for future Bearcats by wearing these shirts with pride!
