Gopher Football Gold Out

Before I forget, I have to share that I volunteered to work at the Metrodome for FREE to put Gold pom poms on the chairs before this weekends Gopher Michigan game. I got an email back from the Volunteer Coordinator saying that they hired some one to do the dirty work *pout*

Here is the email response from the Gopher marketing girl:

SOLID GOLD Volunteers
From: "Rori Carlo"
To: there were 6 (six) email addresses including mine in the to section…hmmm – does that mean she only got six volunteers???

Dear Loyal Gopher Football Fans! Thank you so much for your willingness to help make SOLID GOLD a success this weekend! I was in need of volunteers to put out GOLD pom poms on the seats, however due to the timing constrictions to get into the Dome to do this I have elected to go with a private group to put them out. They can work throughout the night and I was guessing you all wouldn't really want to do that! I am sure as the loyal fans you are, you would have done it, but it would have been inconvenient for most.

What you can do though, is spread the word of wearing GOLD and making it SOLID GOLD Saturday! Tell your friends, family and co-workers and any others to get their tickets to the game if they don't already have them and wear GOLD! No Maroon! We NEED a great turnout of Gopher fans to cheer our team onto a victory over the Wolverines and an 8-2 record!

Also, visit to print out a 20% off coupon on any one GOLD apparel item. The coupon can be used at any GOLD COUNTRY store and will also be honored at the concourse stands on game day!

Thanks again for your willingness to help!

Go Gophers!
