    Default Schedule, stuidents, attendance...

    My youngest will be my third child to attend Gonzaga and will be moving onto campus late August. President McCulloh has been very good about communicating the University's plans to address the Coronavirus and how it will impact student housing and classes. In a recent e-mail the rough plan was explained to parents and students. Of interest was the fact that they announced "all classes following Thanksgiving Break will be taught online. [G]onzaga will ask students who elect to travel outside of Spokane County for the Thanksgiving Break not to return to campus for the remainder of the semester." The e-mail is very lengthy and covers a lot of issues related to classrooms, manner of teaching, housing and refund of housing and meal plans if impacted.

    I wondered what impact this will have on student attendance for any games scheduled between Thanksgiving and the Christmas break? Does anyone have a schedule based on what we know at this point? We have already seen what the Kennel looks like when the student section is empty. What a bummer that this amazing team may not get to enjoy the full benefit of the Kennel Club and the home court atmosphere for a full season!

    Hoping everyone is safe and healthy.

    Don't know about home games, but the TZF clan is planning on trips to Austin and Phoenix in the fall. We'll be adding an extra traveler to future games. My daughter-in-law is in labor as we speak...she'll be our first granddaughter, much to the relief of Big D. He's still the only grandson on both sides of the family. To no one's surprise, he was named "Class Comedian"...I have NO idea where that came from. lol

    She'll be wearing her Zag romper in a few months.

    Zags will have two of their biggest non conference home games after Thanksgiving break. Dec. 5th Arizona and December 12th Washington. I suspect some students might be skipping out on family Thanksgiving this year to stay for those games. December 19th vs Texas Tech will be in Phoenix and after finals for students.

    Wow, would hate for Zona and U-Dub to miss out on the Kennel Club at it’s full force. Those are “tenting” type games. From the news coming out of President’s office, it just doesn’t feel like there will be many kids on campus. If I understood the plan correctly, there will not be any in-person classes after Thanksgiving break. There would be zero (non basketball) reason for kids to stay on campus and miss out on family time for Thanksgiving.
    I still have family in Spokane so I’m hoping my Zag will stay on campus so she can attend the games.

    Strange times..

    Going to be a bummer without the full force of the students-- but if there are fans present -- it will give a good number of people an opportunity to witness a game in the Mac --- but it is a different feeling without the students in full force.

    Many schools are doing the same thing. My daughter is going to Tennessee this Fall. They are sending students home at Thanksgiving and then having finals online remotely.

    I will not be surprised to see basketball played in empty gyms. Schools will take that over no basketball.

    I'm sure the gym will be full of fans... just hope they are the type who can generate some energy. I would love to go to the Zona and U-Dub games if the students are in fact gone and tickets are available. Any tips on how to get tickets? I have only been able to see live games when I travel to watch them (Maui, SMU, Vegas, Portland, Seattle). A game at the Kennel would be awesome.

    Extra tickets will be made available to current season ticket holders/donors first and I would not expect any of the Arizona or UW games to be made available to the general public due to high demand.

    To get even a hope of access, one must be a member of the Bulldog club.

    Just wondering what a single, fall semester class tuition would run? Would one class give you student access?
    Hoping you have a sense of humor too!

    Hey will, come on down to Texas for the game in Austin, or join us in Phoenix for the Tech game.

    Wish I could. If things clear up, I will be moving to somewhere in the southern Appalachian mountains this fall. mentally I am done with the store and am just hanging on to see how things progress. I will need to sell my house, my Grandfathers house, so there is some angst and family issues.
    I am thinking west of Asheville, NC. I will be within an easy drive of many Highland Games and Rennaisance Faires, lots of quality Arts and Craft shows, so will keep making my stuff, just fewer shows and an easier life. Plus it will be an easy drive to see my daughter and grandkids.
    Hoping you have a sense of humor too!
