Getting Warmer: Washington Warm Ups Are Just Around the Corner Print

Do you find yourself whistling "Bow Down to Washington" on your way to work? Doodling W’s on scrap paper? Purchasing purple china? Using phrases like "call an audible" and "free safety" in conversations that have nothing to do with football? Relax. Fall will be here soon enough, and Washington Warm Ups—the UWAA’s popular tailgate parties at out-of-town games—will be back, too.

ImageGet your game face on in the company of fellow Husky fans, and get a great package deal for a low price: just $15 for admission, a drink ticket, a commemorative button and another cool giveaway, with food and additional drinks available on an a la carte basis.

If you’re a UWAA member and you register in advance, the price drops to $10. Advance registration is highly recommended. Walk-ups are welcome, but admission at the door may be limited. So visit and get your tickets today.

How ’bout Them Apples?

For Apple Cup, we’re picking a local Spokane watering hole to host a Husky Happy Hour on Friday, November 21. We’re also lining up a Husky Express bus that will take fans from Spokane to Martin Stadium in Pullman and back on game day, the 22nd.

Visit for all the details.

Put Your Finger on the Button

The UWAA is once again soliciting slogans for its annual button contest.

Prizes will be awarded to all five winning entries. Past selections include "Duck! Duck! Lose!" (Oregon), "Trojans Are History" (USC), "Bad News Bears!" (Cal) and the all-purpose classic, "Purple and Gold Never Gets Old!"
