Our 2018-19 season will open with our 10th annual Membership Tip-Off meeting on Monday, October 22nd. Similar to past seasons this is a unique opportunity to meet the players, hear from Coach, watch practice and participate in a keepsake photo op. The Board is also working on a few other surprises. This will be a member's only event this season and you will be able to join at the door.
This year we will again have six luncheons throughout the season and may possibly add an exciting new event. In addition, we will help with the annual Food Drive chaired by Lupe Izzo and intend to again co-sponsor Pep Rallies at Post Season Tournaments.
Other than the first luncheon held on November 8th at Hawk Hollow, all of the other Luncheons this season are at Eagle Eye Golf Club on Chandler Road in Bath. Doors open at 10:45 am, and the program starts at 11:50 am and lasts to 1:00 pm. In addition to Coach Izzo or one of our assistant coaches, each luncheon features a guest speaker. Luncheons are open to both members and the general public, particularly if you bleed green. Memberships are always available at the door. No reservations are needed.
Our 10th Annual Membership Tip-Off is scheduled for Monday, October 22nd in the Breslin Student Events Center. One of the Club's most popular events allows the Club's new and returning members an up close look behind the scenes of MSU Men's Basketball.

It is always an exciting evening and a great tip-off to the upcoming season of MSU Basketball.
