What are our Watch Parties like? 

Away games typically draw a bigger crowd.  A significant amount of our core membership goes to Happy Valley for home games.  That means we typically don't have the people in town to set up and run bonified watch parties for those games. 

*Shuckin' Shack can't split their sound system and often hosts bands.  That can cause issues with playing the game audio.  Bands usually start at 8PM.

Raffles & Auctions

Ongoing throughout football season

In '22 we raffled off a Barkley jersey!  

This year WE ARE raffling off 2 Michigan tickets and a parking pass.  The seats are in the lower bowl on the visitors side between the 20 & 40 yard lines with a valuation ~$800.  Tickets are $20/1 or $100/6.  The winner will be drawn at the conclusion of the Indiana Watch Party on October 28th.  The winner need not be present to win.

We're also auctioning off 2 tickets to the Homecoming game vs UMass on October 14th at 3:30 PM in Happy Valley.  The auction ends at the conclusion of the Northwestern game on 9/30.  Winners will be announced on or before 10/1.

All proceeds benefit the Potomac Valley Chapter's Gail Pope-Patterson Memorial Scholarship benefiting local students attending Penn State.

Pop Up Events

We've had a lot of success with events that we announce with little notice.  While not completely unplanned they are more spontaneous and allow us to try new things.  We've held Pop Up Events at:

Blue & White Game

April | State College, PA

This is a family friendly game that is typically free to enter and has in the past had a carnival type atmosphere.  In addition to the game, there is a Run/Walk Race to benefit Special Olympics that is held on Sunday.  Participants "Finish on the 50".  Franko Harris and Sue Paterno usually oversee the event with Franko giving high 5's to kids as they enter the tunnel at Beaver Stadium.

Alumni Leadership Connections Conference

July 13 - 16 | State College, PA

This conference is designed to provide attendees with information that they need to successfully lead our alumni affiliate groups while also connecting with and learning from each other.

Keys Game & Picnic

July 9th, 2022 | Frederick, MD

Picnic starts at 4PM

Game starts at 6PM

The Keys Game & Picnic is one of our premier events and is also a major contributor to our Scholarship fund.  Tickets include seats in our block along the 1st base side and all-you-can-eat at our picnic located at one of the outside pavilions.  During the picnic a local baseball coach will organize and run some baseball related activities for kids of all ages.

Use the button below to purchase tickets.  After clicking "Add to Cart" you can select the quantity.  On the Shopping Cart screen, click "continue shopping" in the top right hand corner to add an additional type of ticket. 

Tickets will either be available at the picnic or at Will Call on the day of the event.

Men's Soccer @ MD

September 20th | Shuckin' Shack in Downtown Frederick
