OR4NE Picnic

The annual OR4NE picnic at Dabney State Park along the Sandy River is scheduled for Saturday August 9th from 11AM to 4 PM. The park offers stunning scenery, walking/hiking paths, disk golf, horseshoes, swimming and a boat ramp. There will be plenty of good food, fun and games, so bring the kids to this family friendly event. The park is generally busy…especially if the weather is warm, so please arrive early to secure your parking space.

There is a $5 fee per car for getting into the park. The picnic is free for members and $5 for non-members.

Please bring your favorite side dish or dessert to this potluck event and the Oregonians for Nebraska will provide everything else!

Water and soft drinks will also be provided…for anything else, BYOB.

The picnic is a great opportunity for members to renew their OR4NE membership ($20 for Nebraska Alumni Association members, $25 for non-members) and purchase OR4NE gear. You might even find someone who is interested in discussing the upcoming football season.

Through These Gates

During the 2013 football season Ryan Tweedy and David Max will be touring the state of Nebraska and other locations around the country to provide screenings of Ryan’s Nebraska Cornhuskers documentary film titled “Through These Gates”.

Ryan Tweedy was born a Husker and will die a Husker. He is a film editor in Los Angeles and has been filming and editing for this documentary all over the United States for a year and a half. More information about the documentary and Ryan’s associates in the film making process can be found at the film’s website Huskersfilm.com.

David Max is the co-founder of HuskerMax.com and the author of the book “50 Years of Husker Memories”. OR4NE has decided to host a showing of “Through These Gates” on Saturday, October 19th (a bye week for the Huskers).

The screening would also be a fund raiser for our chapter to help with our scholarship fund. The cost would be $10 per person and shown at Dukes. Most likely time would be around or just after lunch time. Tickets will be available at the Picnic or at any of the watch parties prior to the screening.

Ryan and David would personally attend the screening and be available for a question and answer session about the film. They will also be selling and autographing copies of David’s Book and the Ryan’s DVD.
