OU Club of Wichita – Watch Party Announcement

OU Fans at Game

WATCH PARTIES – John Arnold says Deano’s is prepared to handle us for Watch Parties with appropriate safety measures. Because of Covid-19, we will promote watch gatherings for all televised games.
As is our custom, official watch parties with board representation will happen for away games or home games only available on pay-per-view. The situation is, of course, very fluid so stay tuned.
