Sport Management Club Trip to Portland

The Sport Management Club will be going to Portland on Saturday, March 4.  The group will tour the Veterans Memorial Coliseum, followed by a Q&A session with the Portland Winterhawks front office staff including its general manager and head coach, Mr. Mike Johnston.  At 6 p.m., we will be taking in the Winterhawks’ home game against the Vancouver Giants.  The package for this trip is $59.50 which includes your ticket at the 100 level and a team hat, lodging, and gas money for carpooling.  It does not include tax on the hotel; so the final price is a bit over $60.00.  Lodging is based on 4 persons to a room.  Non club members are also welcome to join us for an additional $10.  Please contact any of the Club executives if you are interested in going.
