NOTE: This post originated August 28, 2012, but still contains pertinent information as you prepare for the 2013 college football season with UANYC.
The 2013 college football season is here!
If you are going to be joining UANYC for a football game watch party in the
Big Apple this season, here are some tips to remember:
- Game captains will greet you upon your arrival at any of the bars we use for our football game watch parties. Our game captains will be on
hand to welcome you and offer any guidance to help make sure your game
watch experience is the best it can be.
- Table reservations are accepted NO EARLIER than the Sunday prior to each week's games. To
reserve a table, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Requests from dues-paying chapter members and those received by Wednesday each week are given priority for table reservations. In
request, provide the number of guests (minimum of four), preferred
location, cell phone number and the name you would like
on the reservation. We will do our best to accommodate everyone with dues-paying chapter members given priority.
- Confirmation e-mails for table reservations will be sent on Fridays so make sure to check your e-mail prior to the game to make sure you received a response to your request.
- Reserved tables must be claimed at least 15 minutes prior to the
scheduled start of the game. Should you need to cancel your reservation,
please do so as soon as possible by calling the bar or sending an email
to email@example.com so your table can go to another Alabama fan. No-shows may result in a loss of priority for future reservation requests.
- Suggested arrival time for our football game watch parties is around
30 minutes before the start of the game. This will ensure you and your
friends get settled at your table and get some food and beverages
ordered before kickoff.
- If you do NOT
table reservation, don't worry. A limited number of tables and
the bar area will be available for open seating. You may want to arrive earlier than 30 minutes prior to kickoff (suggested time is 60 minutes prior) to claim any open seats because these spots tend to fill
- To our game watch regulars, please take the time to get to know the
visiting Alabama fans who may be attending a UANYC event for the first
time. Let's show them some good ol' southern hospitality, Big
Apple-style, to make sure they have a great game watch experience.
- UANYC t-shirts ($20
for short sleeve, $30 for long sleeve) and koozies ($5) will be
available for purchase so bring a little extra $$$ so you can take home a
piece of the chapter.
- If you are interested in serving as a game captain, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
with your name, e-mail address, cell number and indicate the game (or
games if you want to volunteer for more than one game) you are
interested in serving as a game captain. Someone from the chapter
leadership team will follow up with more details and answer any
questions you may have.
Now that you have our game watch game plan, we hope you join us for some Alabama football this fall. Roll Tide!
