With Finals Week right around the corner, let’s provide something to look forward to – CHRISTMAS IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER! AND, before that, BATTLE IN SEATTLE!
So, did you get your ticket? If you didn’t, make sure to head to the Ticket Office this week to pick yours up! They’re only ten dollars, cash or card, and will be available for the rest of the week!
So, once you’re in Seattle, wondering where you’re gonna stay, what else is going on, what time the game is… We’ve got you covered!
Need a hotel for Battle in Seattle? Check out the Hampton Inn & Suites in Downtown Seattle – they’re having a special deal for GU students that are coming over for Battle! For $109 a night, you can get a Standard Single King or Double Queen guest room. This rate will be honored if you stay any time between December 17 and December 23 in case you need extra time in Seattle!
If you want to use this to make a reservation, you MUST email or call in and ask for Rebecca Peck by December 19. Her email address is Rebecca.firstname.lastname@example.org, and the phone number for the hotel is 206-282-7700.
Now, for game day….
Before the game, the Alumni Association is hosting a pre-game social at Exhibition Hal in the Seattle Center. THIS IS NOT IN KEY ARENA, but it is only a few blocks away. The pre-game begins at 5:00 pm, and tip off in Key Arena is at 7:00. More information, including registration details, can be found here: http://www.zagsonline.org/s/829/index.aspx?sid=829&gid=1&pgid=3754&cid=7070&ecid=7070&crid=0&calpgid=475&calcid=1404. There is a $10 cost, but it is open to all Gonzaga students, alumni, family and friends!
Then, after the game, there will be a 21+ Kennel Club Social Club in downtown Seattle! It will be at Ozzie’s, just a few blocks away from the arena and hotel at 105 W Mercer St. Since it is so close to the hotel and arena, there will not be transportation provided. There will be an early drink ticket distribution, as well as a social club jersey pick up, during finals week – more information on this will be coming next week!
Hopefully this helps lift all of your spirits with so much stress coming in the next couple weeks! Finish strong and, as always, ZAG UP!
