Blugold Luncheons Take on New Look in 2010-11
EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (Blugolds.com) - Formerly called the Blugold Luncheons, the UW-Eau Claire Athletics Department has renamed the events the Blugold Booster Gatherings as some events will now take place in the evenings.
Head Football Coach Todd Glaser will host the 1st & 10 Show Thursday nights at 6 p.m. at Whiskey Dicks in Altoona. The first event is slated for September 9 and will be held each Thursday until November 11. Boosters will be able to order a meal from a special menu each night.
As has been done in the past, the gatherings will once again be luncheons for the winter and spring sports. The events will take place at noon on Tuesdays in the Rosewood Room at Americas Best Value Inn. Mancino’s will cater the events, which cost $7 per person.
A total of six Court N’ Rink Luncheons will be held between November 16 and February 15. Head Women’s Basketball Coach Tonja Englund, Head Men’s Basketball Coach Terry Gibbons, Head Women’s Hockey Coach Mike Collins and Head Men’s Hockey Coach Matt Loen will each host the events in the winter.
In the spring, Head Softball Coach Leslie Huntington will hold the Steal N’ Score Luncheons. The luncheons will take place on March 29, April 19 and May 3.
In addition to the hosts of each event, special guests will appear at the gatherings throughout the 2010-11 season. A complete schedule can be found online at
