    FANATICS -

    I wanted to take a minute to invite you all to our annual football season kickoff party on Aug. 23 at BenchWarmers located at 705 Ankeny Blvd. in Ankeny. Important details are below.

    What: CF season kickoff party
    Where: BenchWarmers in Ankeny
    When: Saturday, Aug. 23 at 6 p.m.

    Season ticket giveaway:
    As we did a year ago, Cyclone Fanatic will be giving away a pair of season tickets to the 2014 Iowa State football season. How do you get entered in the raffle? Buy a drink. For every drink you buy, you will be given a raffle ticket. We plan to do the drawing at around 10 p.m.

    More giveaways:
    Ever see one of those SWEET neon Iowa State Bud Light signs? We will have a drawing for one of those, as well as two $50 gift cards to BenchWarmers too.

    LIVE MUSIC: Ain't no party like a CF party. OF course, we will have live music bumping all night as well from MEWT, a local group that plays rock and alternative country. Will be lots of party covers on this night.

    DEALS:

    $2.50 Tall boys - Domestic
    $3 Fireball
    $10 single topping pizzas

    Anyway, this event last year was a blast and I really hope that we can pack the joint again. Thanks for reading and have a great day.

    "How do you get entered in the raffle? Buy a drink. For every drink you buy, you will be given a raffle ticket. We plan to do the drawing at around 10 p.m."


    You should add the following to this rule:

    "If you throw up before the drawing, you are disqualified."

    Hmmm...

    Will have to talk to the powers that be about this.

    DD's should get tickets too. I'll work out a deal for non-drinkers too.

    Maybe this question has been asked before, so I apologize if that's the case. Do you have to be there at the time of the drawing to win the raffle? I have some other commitments and I don't know if I can stay until ten.

    Good thinking about this. DD's don't get enough praise for their service.

    Yes. You have to be present to win. Or, if a friend of yours is staying, give him/her your tickets and they can claim the prize for you. Make sense?

    Is this thing family friendly? Or is it family friendly, but not really family friendly?

    The guys from CampusTownGear.com will have a booth set up on Saturday night where you can purchase T-shirts, etc. Should be fun!

    I've never been to this place, but looking forward to Saturday. How big is it (compared to Keg Stand, for instance)? How early do you think I'd have to get there to secure a table of some sort?

    I assume I won't have to bring a coozie for my tall boys since CF has been known to supply those???
