Corvallis, Ore. - The final spring football practice of 2012 will include Fan Fest, presented by Azumano Travel, Sat., April 28 at Reser Stadium. All activities and events are free.
The day kicks off with the Junior Beavs Fan Fest Kids Clinic at 9 a.m. The one hour event is for 150 kids (ages 5-12) and will be held at the Merritt Truax Indoor Center. Each kid will be involved in six stations of physical activity and provided a post event healthy snack. To pre-register (no walk-up registration) follow this link.
Fan Fair at Parker Plaza begins at 10 a.m. The signature event at Fan Fair will be the annual autograph session with the Beaver football team from 10-11 a.m. at the main concourse of Reser Stadium. Each person is limited to two autograph items; spring football posters will be available for free and Beaver Authentics will be on site selling footballs and apparel. In addition, Fan Fair attendees will have an opportunity to win two season passes for 2012-13 to all OSU Athletics ticketed events (football, men's and women's basketball, gymnastics, baseball, wrestling, volleyball) and a $300 Alaska Airlines voucher. To be eligible for the tickets and voucher you must sign up in person at Fan Fair for Tail Mail, an electronic messaging system that alerts Beaver Nation to upcoming events and special promotions.
Fans interested in purchasing season tickets for the 2012 seven-game home schedule that features Wisconsin, Oregon, Utah, Arizona State, California, Washington State and Nicholls State are encouraged to meet OSU representatives at the stadium. Ticket personnel are available to assist in selecting locations and will secure season tickets with a $50 deposit.
