  • Kansas City Watch Parties?

    To all the KC area Shocker Fans:

    I'm wondering if watch parties will be held again this year?

    Last year, they were at the Fox & Hound in OP.

    Any insight? Dates?

      I only made it to 1 watch party last year, but there were probably 30-40 there for that particular event (we played SWOMO)

          Thanks for the info. I'll have to file that away for later.

            Yes, we will be having the watch parties again at the Fox & Hound. In addition to the ones listed above, it looks like Metro Sports will be televising the Appalachian State game live on Tuesday, November 29th. So, we will also have one that game as well. I'll watch for their December schedule to be published and if they carry any more live I'll let everyone know. Also, don't forget about the pep rally at Bartel Hall prior to the UMKC game on December 15th. See you there. If anyone has any questions, please let me know.

              Soory, I missed one of the questions. We usually have 30-40 at the watch parties. However, we had over 60 at one of the games last year so we got pretty loud that night.
