    What is the group like? Demographic? Age? Women? My wife and I have considered joining your group in the past but it is cost prohibitive and I'm not sure we'd really fit in.

    If anyone wants info on the Maroon Shooters, which is just me going to bars before and after home games, lets me know. Cost to join is picking up the first round.

    Sorry for the gap in timing for my responses, had a rough week at work and stuff at home, didnít jump back out here as frequently as managing our social-media accounts. Will respond in a more timely manner to this thread.

    Again apologies

    There are a variety of types of people who are members, sort of like the different types of people who are season ticket-holders. Members showing up at any given pre-game event is also varied as members get +1 guest... sometimes a member brings a spouse, other times they bring their kid(s) and other times they bring a co-worker (again, just like season ticket-holders bring different guests each games)

    Details are on our website http://www.goldendunkers.com/membership

    Basically the difference in membership level is the amount of donation to the team (support of the program is the point of a booster group) and the level of member dues to cover costs of our events.

    - Gold members have access to all pre-game events along with a +1 guest.
    - Maroon members have access ala Carter to the pre-game events on a per attended basis.
    * popular with out-of-town members who canít mske all home games
    - Backcourt members get invited to select events where priority is given to our members
    * we are working on developing more events for backcourts members

    Those ticket benefits and priority purchase are run by the university, their rules (like gopher points/score) may impact level of priory

    Totally understand that there are fewer benefits of the backcourt level of membership, but they also have the most affordable membership fee. Itís our hope that backcourt members join to support the team and attend some of the events that they have priority registration (season tip-off, pep-rallyís and team banquet - not all events happen each season).

    We are working on developing different events for backcourt members.

    Again, sorry for my delay in checking the forum, I manage the social-media accounts with a pace/frequency in my volunteer hours with the organization. I will try to check this thread more frequently/consistently since adding my post.

    If Larry David can take one to the Dodger's game, I'm sure you can take one to a Gopher's game.

    It's a good group, but it is like any group. If you sit in the corner and look like you want to be left alone, the polite Minnesotans will leave you alone. But if you are a friendly out-going type of person that enjoys meeting and inter-acting with people you will get people that invite you to join them at a table.
    It was always crowded in the Pavilion space and seating was at a premium, so being able to stretch out a bit at the venue we will be using this year at TCF will be nice and most of the tables are bigger so you will almost be forced to sit with someone other than your guest/spouse/hooker.
    I like it because it gets me to the games earlier which makes parking easier--the 6pm starts with a 4:30 dinner time make it tough with my hour long drive in, but it is definitely worth it to me.
    It's not life-changing money-- try it for a year. If you hate it after a couple of weeks/events, talk to the powers-that-be and they can probably do something about your Dunkers portion. The donation portion you will not get back. Or contact me or Becky at the Dunkers and say you want to try an event or two- you can probably do that for just the price of the meal.

    Thank you so much for your cordial and informative response to my inquiry. I’ve long been interested in expanding my association with Gopher sports, and your descriptive of the Golden Dunkers (you can imagine my immediate interest in the moniker) has intrigued me. As for fitting in with the existing group, although not being effusively friendly, I’m certainly no introvert, and enjoy talking Gopher sports with most everyone. My hooker, on the other hand, I can assure you is a friendly type who enjoys meeting and inter-acting with as many people who would consider same. One quick question: do the early dinners you mentioned include a social hour with beverages available via a cash bar, for example? Thanks again!

    This is a good group, but there's always room for a little more eye candy.
