DC Canes October 2013 Newsletter

Fellow DC Canes,

Happy October everyone!  Football is off to a fast start and we enter October 4-0!  While we will continue to have our watch parties this month, read below for a couple other items we are trying to get going:


Hurricanes Football Watch Parties at Penn Quarter Sports Tavern!

Join us every for every televised Hurricanes Football game at Penn Quarter Sports Tavern (639 Indiana Avenue NW, located across the street from Archives Metro Station).  With several drink and food specials to satisfy your thirst and taste buds, come on out and relive the Canes game day experience!   The watch parties we’ve had so far this year have been wonderful, with incredible, energetic crowds!  The bar loves our attendance, our enthusiasm and most importantly our excellent treatment of the bar staff.  Keep up the awesome work!


Our watch parties for this month will be on Saturday, October 5th against Georgia Tech, Thursday, October 17th against UNC and Saturday, October 26th against Wake Forest.   Each one of these games is slated to be on TV, so come out and continue making our watch parties the best in the nation!


As always, we will be doing raffles at halftime during each watch party to raise money for the Marty Pearl Memorial Scholarships, so come out for your chance to win some great Miami gear and support our book scholarships in the process.  We’ll see you at PQST!



DC Canes has plenty of great events coming up, but we need funds to keep the momentum going!  Dues are $25 for individuals or $40 for couples.  This helps keep our operations going so we can bring you bigger and better events!  We will be unveiling some benefits in the next month that only paid members will be able to take advantage of, so don’t delay!


To pay dues online, please send money via PayPal to treasurer@dccanes.com with the subject heading, “Dues.”  In the comments section, please provide your name (or the name of you and your spouse if paying a couples membership) and your email address.  DC Canes memberships are good for 1 year from the date of payment.  We will also accept checks at any DC Canes event (checks made payable to DC Canes).  Please consult our blog post on paying dues via check for more information.

ACC Happy Hour, November 4th

With football season now in full swing and with basketball season approaching, the 16 local alumni chapters of the Atlantic Coast Conference are proud to announce our next happy hour! The happy hour will take place on Monday, November 4th, from 6:00 – 8:30 pm at BlackFinn DC (1620 I Street NW).

We have the Trophy Room reserved and several drink specials: $3 Miller Lite, Blue Moon and Flying Dog drafts, $4 rail drinks, $5 house wines, and $6 specialty cocktails. These specials will run for the entirety of our event.  We also have received some small items from the ACC that we will give away as door prizes to all who attend.

Please invite your friends (whether they be Miami alums or alums of another ACC school) via our Facebook event page and spread the word to your chapters. We hope to have massive Miami representation at BlackFinn on November 4th!


Coming Soon: Ability to Pay Via Credit Card

Never have enough cash to pay for raffle tickets?  Want to pay dues but can’t stand writing checks?  Well, fear no longer!  We are in the final stages of obtaining a credit card reader that will help facilitate all payments at any of our events.  We hope to have this by the October 17th watch party, so stay tuned for more details!


We look forward to seeing you at a future event! If you have any ideas about events we can do this fall or winter, contact the relevant board member about it! For general questions in the meantime, please contact us at info@dccanes.com.  And don’t forget to follow us via our website, Facebook and Twitter.
