Minnesota Vikings Fan Club of New Mexico to Hold Second Meeting 8/25

 

Second event for the Minnesota Vikings Fan Club Of New Mexico.The third preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers starts at 6pm Mountain time and we will start congregating at 5:30pm.Slate Street Billiards will have a designated area for the Minnesota Vikings fans and will have drink and food specials.  As our attendance grows, they will have more and better offers for the Vikings fans.Slate Street Billiards is located in the Southern Plaza Shopping Center strip mall at the NE corner of Southern Blvd SE and Unser Blvd SE in Rio Rancho2003 Southern Blvd SE
Rio Rancho, NM 87124You can call them at (505) 994-0363 for directions.

If you haven’t attended a football game there, you will be happy to see it is a large place that allows different parts of the club to watch different games and yet not overlap excessively with each other.  This helps insure that you can see and hear the games.  If our fan club is successful, we will take over more and more of the bar with more and more screens and areas to congregate in.

Other cities around the country have very successful events like this.  This past season I was in El Paso where they typically had over 100 fans show up for the games, sometimes 200-300.  If El Paso can do it, so can we 🙂

We are going to start off with free club memberships to get the ball rolling.  We anticipate having club t-shirts, raffles, and will grow into a charitable event.

If things go well, we will have the game on the big screen. Even if it isn’t on Direct TV, we will work out a way to make it happen.

Would like to get some actual fan club signups. We are going to start out with FREE memberships. Maybe we can even get some officers elected 🙂

Our meeting will be held at Slate Street Billiards:

Directions:

Take Southern Blvd west from 528/Pat D’Arco. After you have gone a couple miles, you will see a strip mall shopping center on the north side of the street. You will pass McDonalds and then a Giant gas station. Turn right into the driveway on the west side of the Giant gas station. If you are coming from the west on Southern, the strip mall is on the NE corner of Unser, so you can enter from Unser or maybe better yet, go east on Southern and turn in after the Firestone dealer.
