Watch Party's at Ricky's Have Come to an End
It is with sadness that I announce that CaliforniaCats Watch Parties at Ricky’s Sports Theatre and Grille in The East Bay in San Leandro have run their course due to lack of interest after a run of twenty-seven years, ending with the game at Kansas on October 28th. A significant decline in attendance the past couple of years was the cause for this decision. We only had three attend the KU Watch Party, only three - amazing. When we first began our Watch Parties if you wanted to see K-State play you had to go to a sports bar as they had the resources to grab a television feed. As cable television has become prolific nearly all the games are available for people to watch from home. That’s good news and bad news.

The hey day of our Watch Parties occurred in the late ‘90’s when Michael Bishop was quarterback. We typically averaged 15-30 people per game in those years with the Nebraska game being the biggest draw as we drew over 100 fans several years in a row.

The CaliforniaCats would like to expand the Kansas State friends that receive this email. If you know any Kansas State alumni, parents or friends that live in Northern California... we want their email address. Please send us their email address by sending a note to sfkstater@gmail.com.

CaliforniaCats does not distribute email addresses to any other organization. Our email distribution list is used for the communication of upcoming CaliforniaCats events.
