Per a previous conversation within a post, I found that BN could be a great resource to THE DEN to promote some of our important events upcoming as they relate to our athletics teams.
This Friday (Oct 9th) at 7pm in Pauley Pavilion, our #16 UCLA Bruins Women’s Volleyball squad is taking on our cross town and league rival, #13 U$C toOJans. This is our "golDEN Game" for the UCLA Women’s Volleyball team.
What is a "golDEN Game?" Come with me after the jump.
A golDEN game is a special non-revenue sport game/match/meet that the team deems as an important and necessary game to win. THE DEN then contacts the team and marketing representatives for that sport to promote the game and ensure that out of all games in the year, this one gets the most attendance and participation, at least among students. THE DEN then goes out and finds ways to draw a crowd, usually involving giveaways and food to the students.
We are already expecting a huge student population for this event, but to truly make a difference, the teams needs the house to be packed with Blue and Gold. In the past UCLA vs. U$C volleyball matches, $C has found a way to fill a section with red … in our house. This is clearly unacceptable, because not only is it our home court, a contingent of opposing fans can have a massive effect on our team and crowd, especially in the venue (a curtain is put down to only utilize the eastern third of Pauley). With that in mind, I am asking BruinsNation to join THE DEN in flooding Pauley and ensuring our Bruins a victory.
I cannot promise you free giveaways or food, but I can promise you an excellent and entertaining match. Women’s volleyball is very energetic, emotional, and exciting and will hardly disappoint. A victory will be a great way to prepare for a day of tailgating and football.
Please come out in your Blue and Gold and come early. Gates open at 6pm, and in past years, there have been $C fans waiting to get in at opening.
I hope to see you at at the game. I would also enjoy meeting fellow BN members and put faces to screen names. I’ll be in the bottom student section (south end of the volleyball court) wearing a blue bruin hat with white pinstripes so come down and say HI!
Come out for a great evening and cheer our Bruins on to victory over those trOJies!
