Join us for Alumni Band basketball Homecoming!

James Bedingfield, president of the UCBAA, has announced a very fun and unique event that we hope to make an annual tradition: Alumni Band basketball Homecoming! Please see James’ email below and RSVP to him at TUCBIDG!


I wanted to let you know about a new social event we’re going to try this year. We’re hoping it will catch on and continue for many years.

The basic idea was to create a second “Homecoming”-type event to get as many people together and playing as possible. It just so happens that as I’m writing this our Bearcats Men’s Basketball team is ranked 13th in the nation! The plan is to play along with the Undergrad Band at a basketball game and stick around campus for a meal afterwards. Here are the details:

Saturday, February 15. Game time is 3:00pm. Report time will be 1:30pm.

The game should end with a Bearcats victory over the Houston Cougars around 5:15. After the game we will head to the new Taste of Belgium restaurant on Short Vine. Dinner will be on your own so if you’re a crafty at finding a parking spot and not hungry you could attend this get-together for exactly $0.

Can’t make it to the game, but want to join us for dinner? Show up at Taste of Belgium around 5:45pm.

Want to bring your family? Great! You will have to buy them tickets to the game, though. Hurry…the team is good so it could sell out! 513.556.CATS

Need to borrow an instrument? Tell me in your RSVP email and we’ll find one for you.

If you’d like to join us I need you to RSVP to me by Friday, February 7th. Just hit reply to this e-mail. Please ask if you have any questions. We’d love to see you at the game and/or dinner.
