This Saturday, the University of Oregon Ducks will hold their Spring Football game at Autzen Stadium in Eugene. The Oregon Club of Southern Oregon is sponsoring a bus trip to Eugene for the football game and an Oregon baseball game after the football game. Last night I received in part the following email from the Oregon Club of Southern Oregon :

MEET ME AT THE FRONT ENTRANCE OF PK PARK (baseball park) before the start of the baseball game around 4:50 -5pm. I will give everyone their food and drink voucher that you can use at any of the concession stands during the game. Everyone will be split up into two groups of 18. The first group of 18 will watch the first 4 in a half innings in the baseball suite and then we will switch and the second group of 18 will watch the last 4 in a half innings from the baseball suite. The baseball suite will have beer and snacks as well. There is a beer garden in PK park just past first base in foul territory.

I also received this email from the Oregon Athletic Department:

The Ducks will hold their final intrasquad football scrimmage of the spring from 2–4 p.m. Saturday in addition to the school’s baseball team hosting Washington State in PK Park at 5 p.m.

The annual Spring Game presented by Bi-Mart culminates the Ducks’ off-season football drills, in addition to providing the backdrop for the tribute to recognize active armed forces troops and their families who are serving or have returned from duty in Iraq and Afghanistan......

The Moshofsky Center will open at 10 a.m. and will feature live music, interactive games and information tables providing an outreach for veteran service organizations and active military personnel as part of the “Support our Troops and Families” tribute.

Food and beverages will be sold in the Mo Plaza at the east end of the Ducks’ indoor facility.

In conjunction with the event, the Duck Store in the northwest corner of the Moshofsky Center will sell specially-designed t-shirts donated by Nike beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday, with all proceeds from the sales forwarded to families of deployed troops and returning veterans. In addition, a military discount of 20 percent will be offered to all past and present military personnel and their families on merchandise at the Moshofsky Center Duck Store only. (The specially-designed t-shirts and a few other items will be excluded from that discount).

Gates into Autzen Stadium will open at 1 p.m., with a donation of three non-perishable food items requested for admission. Last year, more than 22,000 pounds of food was generated for Food for Lane County from Oregon’s final spring scrimmage.

I am really looking forward to the trip and both games ! Go Ducks!!!!
