Something Brewin In The OC

Orange County Bruins are an active bunch these days. BruinEd03 is putting together a Bruin gathering around the Angels game on June 23rd which sounds like lot of fun.

Also on the same day the UCLA Athletics Club of Orange County is putting together a very cool event at Balboa Bay Club in Newport Beach. Got this via an email:

UCLA Athletics Club of Orange County
Inaugural Celebration Dinner

A limited number of tickets remain for the UCLA Athletics Club of Orange County Inaugural Celebration Dinner:

Saturday, June 23, 6:00pm
Balboa Bay Club (1221 West Coast Highway, Newport Beach, CA)

Come enjoy an evening with Bruin supporters from across Orange County and learn about this exciting initiative that is taking place in your own backyard.

The evening will kick off with a hosted, full-service bar highlighted by a specialty Ketel One Martini bar. Following the cocktail reception, the evening will progress into a lavish dinner and exciting program featuring MC Lynn Shackelford, Director of Athletics Dan Guerrero, a "Conversation with Coach and the Quarterbacks" featuring Terry Donahue and quarterbacks Wayne Cook, Tom Ramsey and Cade McNown. The discussion will be led by former Bruin defensive back James Washington.

Tickets for the event are $250 (50% tax-deductible) and can be purchased by contacting Scott Nelson ( or310-206-3302).

The time is now to get involved with UCLA Athletics in Orange County. If you are currently a supporter of UCLA Athletics, your involvement is sincerely appreciated. Our goal is to create a firm establishment in Orange County and benefit from the greatness that it entails.
If you live in or around Orange County and want to get more involved in UCLA athletics given what you read here on a daily basis, I strongly encourage you to go to these events. Because when it all comes down to it, while we articulate our reservations or concerns about our programs or celebrate their success here online, it is always important to engage the UCLA brass in a professional manner offline. This is the kind of program that presents a opportunity to tell Mr. Guerrero in a frank and respectful manner exactly what we are expecting from the football program next season. I’d encourage all of you who live around the area to take advantage of it.

Plus it is always cool to see this guy:

I miss those days.
