What’s up Zags?!
Like the new look? We slimmed down a little, just thought we’d take the whole “New Year, New You” resolution make and be very literal with it….which means starting our resolution with 75% of the year gone. BUT HEY! We’re working on navigation and organization, so hopefully this can help streamline things a bit! Important posts will appear at the top of the blog and you can scroll through important pictures, so clicking on the picture will take you to the post, while below the pictures all the articles will appear in reverse chronological order, just like before.
Welcome in to the fifth week of the school year, which means…. We’re already a month in. WHAT?! Tomorrow is October, which means it’s socially acceptable to watch all those Halloween movies we already watch year round, and ordering your favorite pumpkin-spice salted-caramel autumn infused addiction from Starbucks feels oh so right.
All that means is we’ve got plenty of new and exciting things that will be going on this week, and some more that we’re rolling out! So, without any more babbling, here’s what we’ve got on deck….
- Busy week in the Zags Sports World!
Thursday, October 2: Volleyball takes on Pepperdine at HOME! This is the first time our volleyball girls have had a home match in almost a month, so get out there and support them at 6 pm!
Friday, October 3: Women’s Soccer takes on St. Mary’s at home (for the first time in three weeks!) at 3:30 pm, while Men’s Soccer is at Pacific
Saturday, October 4: Volleyball returns against Loyola Marymount at noon
Sunday, October 5: A soccer doubleheader! First the girls battle Pacific at 11 am, then the guys battle St. Mary’s right afterward at 1:30 pm.
- Return of sporting events means two things:
First, ZAG REWARDS IS BACK! Yes, Athletics wants to give you free things for going out and supporting our fellow Zags as they compete. However, a couple things are different than last year. Remember how you would first swipe into the event, then have to go to the athletics table to swipe your card for a point? NO MORE! All you have to do is swipe into the event and bam, you’ve got your point. So, every time you go to an event, your one step closer to free gear. For updates and special promos like double point opportunities (HINT: Thursday night is a double point game), follow @ZagRewards on Twitter or check out their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/ZagRewards
Second, remember the Kennel Cards and how you got some SWEET deals a couple weeks ago with them? Why not do it again?! This weekend, all four businesses on the card have promos when you show your Kennel Card! So, if you’re already tired of the BARC (we get it), this is a great chance to go out and explore Spokane dining options without making your wallet cry!
- On Thursday, Rosa’s Pizza is having a BOGO – buy one, get one free on any menu item
- On Saturday, Pita Pit has the same deal – buy one pita, get one free
- On Sunday at Geno’s you can get a free Happy Hour-style appetizer with any sandwich or entrée
- As always, remember that showing your card at Chairs will get you 15% off!
Remember that you have to show your card at the business, and each deal is limited to one per customer!
- Connect with us on Snapchat!
Hold up. Snapchat?! YES. We made a Snapchat account so you guys can get a behind the scenes look at what goes into a basketball game, what we’re up to, and for promotional ideas. We figured since over 77% of college students use Snapchat every day (to the tune of 200,000,000 snaps a day), why not connect through it? This is going to be a great way to run promotions and give away some sweet stuff in the future, but for now… BE OUR FRIEND! Username: GonzagaKennel. We’ll be posting a lot of MyStories in the coming weeks leading up to Kraziness in the Kennel, so watch for them on your feed! Send us snaps of yourself in the Kennel too, maybe you’ll end up as our favorites of the day and win some sweet gear!
Whew, that was a lot of info. So, in summary, the TL;DR –
- Volleyball Thursday night, Women’s Soccer Friday, Volleyball Saturday, Soccer doubleheader Sunday
- Zag Rewards is back and easier than ever
- Kennel Cards = free things this weekend!
- Snapchat us! GonzagaKennel
That’s all for now! See you all back in the Kennel for KRAZINESS in just a few weeks!
