TheSooner Club of Las Vegas is a support group of the University of Oklahoma. Membership is open to alumni, friends of the University and Sooner fans in the Southern Nevada area.
Our purpose is to provide fellowship for alumni and friends of OU, encourage a better informed alumni body and promote the interests and needs of the University in the community. Our main goal is to provide an annual academic scholarship to a graduating senior from the Clark County School District in Southern Nevada. Funds for the scholarship come from membership dues and tax-deductible donations from our members. Our scholarship is matched dollar for dollar by the University in the form of tuition waivers, effectively doubling our scholarship.
We invite you to join us this fall at one of our televised football games to cheer on the Sooners in their quest for another Big XII Championship.
We are moving to a new location this year. Our watch parties will be at LaPiazza Italian Restaurant and Sports Bar at 1000 North Main Street. We will be there for all games that aren't Pay per View. La Piazza is on the northeast corner of Main Street and Washington, just a few blocks north of the Main Stree Station Casino. It is part of a Best Western Hotel and is easily accessle from I-15, just north of the "Spaghetti Bowl" (the overpasses where I-15 and US 95 intersect). They have great Italian food and pizza as well as your usual sports bar menu items (wings, fingers, burgers, etc). Come and join us for some great food and fun times as the Sooners try to win another Big XII title and earn a fifth trip to the BCS Championship Game.
Annual membership dues are $20 per person / family. Dues may be paid by cash or check. Checks should be made out to the "OU Foundation." Members who pay by check will receive a tax receipt from the University. You may pay at one of the games, or send your check to:
