Greetings Bama Fans.

What a great game BAMA played Saturday. It was wonderful to make it 10 years in a row over UT. Another big challenge is coming up this Saturday against another ranked team, Texas A&M.  There are many past connections between Alabama and Texas A&M.  Both Paul Bryant and Gene Stallings coached at both universities with much success.

If you’re planning on watching the game in the Chicagoland area, please join us at either of our two official University of Alabama Chapter watch locations that support Roll Tide Chicago’s scholarships.  The Houndstooth is located at 3369 N Clark St. in Chicago.  The Cubs will have a playoff game Saturday, the time will be 7:08 PM CT.  Please arrive 2-3 hours prior to kickoff to get seats.  There are no reservations at “The Tooth” and it is based on a “first come, first serve” basis.   Alumni will be there to greet you as soon as you enter. The Houndstooth’s web site for further details is www.houndstoothsaloon.com.

In the suburbs, Another Round, is located at 5141 Main Street in Downers Grove. Another Round will be open also and ready to greet all the wonderful BAMA fans.  We have a private area to the far left as you enter the bar.  Within this watch area, is a large room with couches and comfortable chairs that can be reserved for a donation to the scholarship fund.  Send email to rolltidechicago@gmail.com if interested.  Another Round’s web site is www.anotherroundbarandgrill.com.

Greetings Bama Fans from Jack,

The Tide continued to roll with a great win Saturday night over Arkansas.

The time has come for the traditional 3rd Saturday in October game, if you are old enough to remember that phrase, playing Tennessee at 2:30 PM. It will be another tough road game for BAMA.

Tide Trivia Fact.  What member of the 1961 championship football team went on to coach at Tide archrival Tennessee?

If you’re planning on watching the game in the Chicagoland area, please join us at either of our two official University of Alabama Chapter watch locations that support Roll Tide Chicago’s scholarships.  The Houndstooth is located at 3369 N Clark St. in Chicago.  The Cubs have a playoff game Saturday, the time to still be announced.  Please arrive 2-3 hours prior to kickoff to get seats.  There are no reservations at “The Tooth” and it is based on a “first come, first serve” basis.   Alumni will be there to greet you as soon as you enter.

Mia, Cathy and I will be at Another Round to assist you.  Hope to see you there.

A message from Jack Ayers, President, RTC

Hello Tide Fans

It was my privilege last Saturday to represent The Chicago Alumni Chapter at the National Alumni Meeting which recognizes newly endowed scholarships.  Beginning in the fall of 2017, RTC will participate in the selection of another Illinois student that will attend UA. This scholarship will be awarded from the Norman and Jeanne Pinkert Scholarship for the Advancement of Geriatric Education & Research. It was exciting to hear that over 500 scholarships are rewarded annually from Alumni Chapters throughout the US.  Please help us continue to do our part in this great success by attending watch parties at The Houndstooth and Another Round, our two NAA official locations.
