The chapter has an arrangement with the sports bars to have a room/area and wait staff reserved for each event.
Hokie Kids: Occasionally, people have asked if they can bring a child with them to the sports bar, particularly during early Saturday games. The management at both sports bars welcomes children, and requests that they are supervised at all times.
The chapter proudly supports the Houston Food Bank. Annually, we collect monetary donations at all sports events gatherings. Please help by bringing your donation, or to send a financial donation:
1) Make a check payable to “Houston Food Bank”.
2) Write “VTAA Houston Chapter” on the memo line.
3) Mail to treasurer: Bart Hatfield, 726 Winston Lane, Sugar Land, TX 77479.
The Houston Food Bank and the chapter maintain responsibility for your privacy, and will not release your personal or financial information.
Bowl Games: As long as VT earns a Bowl, both establishments will save us a spot to watch it together!
Please note: the Alumni Association does not make provisions for group ticket sales to local chapters. Therefore, neither the VTAA, nor the Houston Chapter is a resource for tickets to Bowl Games. Local alumni must then purchase tickets through the usual channels on an individual basis. In that regard, the committee respectfully requests that members please refrain from sending e-mail inquiries on ticket availability. However, if someone has Bowl tickets to SELL, we will do our best to inform the chapter promptly via e-mail so you may be contacted directly. Please e-mail the committee your full name, contact information and ticket details.
Additionally, it is not practical to coordinate group travel to any bowl game on such short notice (~ 3 weeks). Group travel requires a minimum of three months of planning in order to assess interest, collect payments and make provisions for transportation/hotel/tailgating arrangements. The committee is eager to organize another game trip for Houston alumni, and continues to look for opportunities to do so. Any future plans will be communicated as early as possible.do our best to inform the chapter promptly via e-mail so you may be contacted directly. Please e-mail the committee your full name, contact information and ticket details.
Hokies Respect! In 2003, the VT Athletics Department launched a campaign to foster good sportsmanship among players and fans alike:
"Hokies Respect" Campaign. Our local chapter exemplifies "Hokies Respect", and in that spirit, we support and promote the campaign today by continuing to conduct ourselves as first-class fans. For this reason, when we gather together to support our team, we are also respected by the fans of our opponents, and we may closely interact with them in a way that is fun and engaging. In addition, the management at both locations highly values our patronage, and we are very appreciative of their support.
Go Hokies! Come out and cheer on your team!
