Yeah, I know it seems like a long time, but it will be here before you can pick up your family pass. You can wait and put it off and procrastinate, but then you’re acting like our federal government.
By waiting, etc., you will pay more for less when you could go ahead right now and pay less for more. Not everybody understands economics like we do here in Bryan County.
When you and yours can see a bunch of games for the price of seeing a few games, why not? You don’t even have to show your birth certificate to purchase the family pass.
That family pass saves a good wad of cash, which you may then trade for vital stuff like popcorn, hot dogs and soda pops.
You can beat the rush because Southeastern’s Family Pass is now available online. The no-brainer deal is the All-Seasons Family Pass for $125. That’s projected over 42 home dates and would be $574 if purchased game-by-game.
SE VOLLEYBALL will be the first sport to begin competition in the Great American Conference.
Coach Jenn Corkum’s young ladies will open the season September 2-3 at the University of Nebraska-Omaha 2011 Volleyball Showcase.
Southeastern will play the Northern State Wolves of South Dakota and Augustana Vikings of South Dakota on the first day, then take on the Minnesota State-Moorhead Dragons and Winona State Warriors of Minnesota on day two.
The team will visit Central Oklahoma and participate in the Angelo State Invitational September 9-10 before the home opener.
The Storm will host Arkansas-Monticello at 7 p.m. Friday, September 16, in the first contest of the new GAC.
Southern Arkansas, also of the GAC, will come to town Saturday, September 17, and Dallas Baptist will be here on Tuesday, September 20.
The season ends November 11-12 with the Great American Conference Tournament.
STORM FOOTBALL opens at home on September 10, but not against a GAC opponent.
It will be a familiar opponent when Central Oklahoma comes to town, but this year, UCO is homeless.
The Bronchos and Northeastern’s RiverHawks have left the Lone Star Conference and will be in limbo until fully accepted by the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletic Association.
Football’s home opener will be another familiar foe as Southwestern visits Durant for the GAC opener.
Coach Ray Richards’ club will visit Southern Arkansas and East Central, both members of the new GAC, before hosting SW in the conference home opener.
Other opponents on the 2011 schedule will be Northeastern, along with GAC foes Henderson State, Arkansas Tech, Arkansas-Monticello, Ouachita Baptist and Harding.
IT WILL BE a new-look schedule this school year.
Southeastern, East Central and Southwestern go all the way back to the old Oklahoma Collegiate Conference. We then had the Oklahoma Intercollegiate Conference in the days of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics.
The move up to NCAA Division II saw competition in the Lone Star Conference and now we have moved on to the Great American Conference.
If you’re a Southeastern fan of long standing, you don’t need anyone to tell you about the football clashes back in the good old days.
Now we will have those clashes across the board in football, volleyball, men’s and women’s basketball, women’s cross country, men’s and women’s tennis, baseball and softball.
That Family Pass is sounding better and better.
