"Civil War" Lunch

For the second time in about 10 years there will be a JOINT "Civil War" lunch between the Oregon Club of Southern Oregon and the Oregon State fans in Southern Oregon. The clubs had joint lunches for many years but about 10 years ago there was a fight between a Duck fan and a Beaver fan over in Klamath Falls at a joint function leading up to the "Civil War" football game between the University of Oregon and Oregon State University. As a result both universities withdrew support for the joint meeting. Both groups of fans continued to have "Civil War" functions, just not joint! Well, year before last the Oregon Club of Southern Oregon on it's own approached the Beavers and their AD said no. Last year the clubs got together with the passive support of the two schools and everyone had a great time. This year we will do it again and will have a joint lunch of friendly rivalry. Last I heard there were 295 + fans scheduled for the (Correction) Medford Red Lion Inn for the lunch on Tuesday
Go Ducks beat the Beavers!

"Mighty Oregon"

Oregon, our Alma Mater
We will guard thee on and on
Let us gather round and cheer her
Chant her glory Oregon
Roar the praises of her warriors
Sing the story Oregon
On to victory urge the heroes
Of our mighty Oregon!
Go Ducks Go!
Fight Ducks Fight!
Win Ducks Win!

“OSU may fight to the end, but we… will… win!”
