Join the OU Club of KC for the Rose Bowl Game 2018 Watch Party Monday, January 1st @ 4:00PM vs. Georgia at Tanner’s Bar & Grill – College Blvd.

Calling Sooner Nation to fill Tanner’s to cheer our Sooners to their next victory and support the halftime scholarships drawing in this precursor to the National Championship!

OU Sooners vs. Georgia Bulldogs at:

Tanner’s Bar & Grill — College, Home of the OU Club of KC

13350 College Boulevard

Lenexa, KS  66210



Halftime Drawing will be held and considered for the National Championship  😊  as supplies and attendance allow.  Thank you to Sooners who have donated items, supporting scholarships with great products for the scholarship drawings.

The 2 Club scholarships to OU for $5000/yr each are sustained by memberships, donated money and prize items, your loose change and bills dropped in the Scholarship Tip Bucket and through volunteers giving time to help with fund raising events and the Scholarship Committee.  Thank you Tanner’s for your scholarship support through purchase of our OU PPV game vs. Tulane for free attendance by Sooners and your $500 end of season donation since OUCKC has achieved the average 50 Sooners per watch party AND MORE!

Club memberships also help qualify the Club for OU-sponsored events like Caravans to KC (based on number of members) and special OU speakers.  Join/renew memberships online at, by check to the OU Foundation (mail to me or to OU) or drop by a watch party (to pay by cash, check or credit card).  Be sure to reference the OU Club of Kansas City in the memo/comment line of any related or generic donations to the OU Foundation.  Donations made to the OU Foundation are tax deductible.



OUCKC Scholarship Committee Dec. 2017 through March 2018:  Barry Browning has grasped the reins to chair the committee.  Thank you, Barry and all you others who have offered to be on the committee.  Barry and I will be in touch soon to confirm your membership, provide confidentiality agreements for your signature and return, provide some general ground rules and organize a meeting for January 2018.  Christie Smeal, our locally based OU regional Recruitment Representative for Kansas & Missouri (and other areas), will work with Barry and the Committee throughout the process, and I will be available for historical input.

OUCKC Spring Fundraiser Event w/OU Speaker March 6, 2018:  The Board has initiated talks with OU for an exciting speaker from OU Athletics for a scholarship fundraiser event the evening before the Big XII basketball tournament begins.  We still need volunteers for the Committee and a Chairman to get to work soon on finalizing a venue w/food and beverage, setting prices for sale of tickets, and obtaining items for a silent auction.  A ticket pre-sale will be open to Club Members.  Please contact me if you can help in any way with this very important event.  We still need to raise more funds to support the Fall 2018/Spring 2019 scholarships and this event should be able to make that a reality.

See the News Updates page of this website for more information on:  1) The OU High School Leadership Conference February 16-18, 2018 and 2) The OU Big Event April 7, 2018


Your ideas, participation and help on the Board, in Committees and with events are needed to support fund raising opportunities, expand club activities, and provide membership experiences.  We need your help with some basic Club tasks and the events mentioned above.

While we’re waiting for the Rose Bowl:  Don’t forget to watch the Heisman Award show this Saturday, Dec. 9th at 7pm CT to see the our amazing Baker Mayfield deservedly win the trophy he was born to hold!  Keep up with all the awards for Baker and the rest of our impressive team by regularly visiting  Enjoy some the non-CFP bowls.  Start watching some Sooner basketball and suggest some game options for a Club Watch Party after football season.  Have a wonder holiday season with your family and friends.  Enjoy a fun and safe New Year’s Eve.  Then put on your game face and lucky Sooner attire and join OUCKC New Year’s Day to watch the Sooner’s win the Rose Bowl!
