Cage Rage (Update: Cancelled due to Harvey)


When’s the donor dinner this year? Last year, they scheduled it at the same time as Cage Rage.

Looks like they moved it back an hour as last year started at 6 pm.

Does Cage Rage start at 7 or 7:30?? It is listed as both times on different announcements. I’ll be trying to come from my school’s scrimmage and it matters to me.

Gates open at 7, event starts at 7:30


Is it on with the upcoming tropical storm?

I bet it gets moved till sat

Storm will still be here on Saturday if it hits and stays as forecasted haha

Should be an announcement coming tomorrow.

Anyone know if the “Kick Off” event that is scheduled for 6:00 this Friday is on or cancelled? I have not received an email from Cougar Pride indicating on or off?

Kick off event also cancelled. It was on Twitter.

Thanks coog93. I don’t look at twitter. You’d think Cougar Pride would send an email.
