Each Lonestar can nominate to bring 1 guest max. All partners welcome of course! If we run out of tickets we will try to get some more in the same area but no guarantees on location or price. Don't miss out what will be a memorable evening out with the Squids and let's show them the same hospitality they always show us!

The Cowboy Cup games will kick off around 9.00am on Saturday(TBC), so we should be done by 1.00pm so everyone can get home and change into their rodeo gear and get to the stadium in time.  We will be nominating an earlier meeting spot and time before we head into the stadium closer to the day.

2015 Spring Metro Teams & Combine Results

It was a solid turn out of 35 guys at our first Combine of the year on Saturday morning at Bendwood Park.

Conditions were perfect for the boys to take on fitness and skills drills Coaches Dan & Nate had ready for them. You can check out the Metro Combine results here.  There were some great performances from many of the boys, however it is still a primary focus of the Lonestars to improve our kicking skills so expect more drills over the next month focusing on this and grab a mate and practice as much as you can. 

It was then onto Karbach Brewery(confirmed sponsor for 2015) to enjoy a few beers and lunch and take part in the announcing of the Spring Metro teams.  Even if you weren't there on Saturday and you are on the Player list you were drafted to a team so please take note and your captains will be in touch this week confirming availability.  If you don't see your name on the list please let let us know and we will sign you up to the Blues or Reds. Newcombers are always welcome!

The Spring Metro Series will be a great lead up to our first USAFL game against the Ft.Lauderdale Squids and Austin Crows in the Cowboy Cup, March 21st. Stay tuned for more info on that match and Rodeo tickets.
