We received a notice from the Univ of Texas Box Office late last week informing us that they have moved our order time from today (Monday) until Wednesday morning.  That gives everyone who might have been out of town last week for the holiday (including yours truly) an opportunity to get those last minute orders in.  We have extended the order deadline until Tuesday night at midnight. As previously stated, you will still be able to order tickets after the deadline but you will not be sitting in the main section of ISU fans closer to the 50 yard line.  Also note that the early bird sale on the tailgate will end on Wednesday as well and pricing will go from $15 per person up to $20 per person.  Take advantage of this short window and save yourself a little money while guaranteeing that you get the best seats possible.  All details can be found below.

In other news: 

Our fledgling young alumni group met last week for trivia night at So&So's in Uptown and "Hilton South" dominated the contest and left with the title.  The following night the Cys of Texas competed in their first kickball game and came back from a 6-1 deficit to tie the game, ending at 6-6.  These are the first of numerous activities that our new young alumni group has planned for the coming months. Please watch for updates via future newsletters and social media.


Brewery Tour

We've set up another brewery tour to pass the summer months. This is the 4th straight year, alternating between Fort Worth and Dallas. We've been to Rahr, Deep Ellum Brewing Co and Martin House. This year we're heading to Texas Ale Project.

TAP is a great local brewery located in the Design District. Here are the details:
  • 1:30-5p on 7/30/2016. (They are open from 1-9 PM for everyone wanting to stay longer) 
  • $17 gets you (3) beers of your choice, plus a pint glass. Beers are $5/beer after that.
  • Informal tours of the brewery are held at 2PM and 3PM
  • Age 21 required to drink; however families are more than welcome, and dogs are welcome as well. They have an awesome outdoor patio space. They have bags (Cornhole), giant jenga, foosball, and other table games.
  • Outside food is permitted to bring in, so bring snacks if you want. Food Trucks tend to be there too.
  • Lastly, but maybe important for July 30 - they have an air conditioned bar area.
PLEASE RSVP by emailing - they do need a head count. Pay at the door. Let us know you're going and wear your Cyclone gear. Justin promises that you will love this place!

Meet the Cyclone Press

The 2015 Big 12 Media Days are set to occur at the Omni Hotel in downtown Dallas on July 18th and 19th. Coaches from all of the Big 12 schools attend this event to meet with the assembled media to go on TV and Radio shows in a round robin fashion. We have arranged to meet up on Sunday night before the event with several media members from Iowa who will be in town. This will be a very informal get-together at Babb Bros BBQ at Trinity Groves, Dallas. Feel free to eat dinner, drink or just come hang out and meet some of the people who's columns you read on a regular basis. We have confirmed Randy Peterson an Tommy Birch of the Des Moines Register, Bobby LaGesse of the Ames Tribune and Chris Williams of Cyclone Fanatic. Others have been invited and may show up including a couple of national writers from ESPN, Fox and CBS but these are the ones we are planning for at this time.
We have a pile of 2016 Cyclone Football posters and schedule magnets/keyfobs to hand out at this event.

Date: Sunday July 17th
Time: 6 PM until 9ish
Where: Babb's BBQ

2016 Cyclone Football Tickets


As always, we are offering tickets for all Iowa State football games in Texas and Oklahoma. It all starts in Fort Worth, then to Stillwater and finally down to Austin. Let's break the games down one at a time.  As always, the best tickets go to the people first in line so don't wait too long to get your orders in.

TCU - Sept 17th, 11AM Kickoff

The formal deadline has passed to purchase tickets but we were able to convince ISU to purchase an additional 50 tickets in our block for those of you who missed the deadline. The ticket price is a flat $85 and will be included in the original ISU block. I expect that we could have sold a lot more than that but the liability was too great to take the risk. These are the FINAL 50 tickets, once they are gone, it's over. You will need to get tickets through another source. We are planning a large tailgate with ISUAA and ISU Athletics at Paschal High School in Ft Worth similar to the one in 2014, only bigger.  Gametime has been announced as 11AM kickoff so all of the pieces are in place to make this a great event.  Don't hesitate on this limited time offer

Oklahoma State - Oct 8th, TBD Kickoff

Make the trip up to friendly Stillwater for should be a fun day of football and tailgating. The OSU fans are very friendly and hospitable and nothing beats having a cold one at Eskimo Joe's after the game wraps up. Tickets are $60 with seating located in Sect 228. We will also have a BYOT (Bring Your Own Tailgate) event to accompany this game. Tailgate details will be released as the game approaches.

Ticket deadline is Sunday, July 31st at Midnight. Tickets may be available after this date but most likely will not be located within the main Iowa State blocks that we have secured.

University of Texas - Oct 15th, TBD Kickoff

We are offering a full array of options for this game as we expect this to be the largest Cyclone event in Texas each time it comes around.  Based on the attendance of 450+ Cyclones from the 2014 tailgate we are planning on big things once again. We will offer ticket-only packages as well as tickets-plus-tailgate.  We have also coordinated with a couple of hotels in Austin to get group rates.  Details are below for everything.  Ticket deadline is Sunday, July 10th at Midnight. Tickets may be available after this date but most likely will not be located within the main Iowa State blocks that we have secured.

The DFW Cyclones are partnering with the Austin Iowa State Club and Soap Creek Cookers to provide entry into our All-You-Can-Eat BBQ including beverages. Package pricing reflects Early Bird rates. Tailgate pricing will increase as gameday approaches.
