Month of November Food Drive with LA Regional Food Bank – Participate at your Santa Monica Barneys Beanery!

The Los Angeles Iowa Club is partnering with the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank to help provide food for the hungry this November. For every November Gamewatch (vs Wisconsin, Purdue, Michigan, and Nebraska), the LA Iowa Club is asking its members to donate at least 1 non-perishable item to the LA Regional Food Bank. We will have a box available to drop off your donation at the Santa Monica Gamewatch site. Last year we were able to donate abound 25 pounds of food during just 1 Gamewatch. The LA Iowa Club’s target is to donate 100 or more pounds of food toward this effort!

Examples of non-perishable items to donate:

Canned Chicken, Powdered Milk, Canned Tuna, Saltine Crackers, Soups, Juices, White Rice, Jarred or Canned Spaghetti Sauce, Grape Jelly, Canned Vegetables, Breakfast Cereals, Pork & Beans, Peanut Butter, Macaroni & Cheese, Pasta, Popcorn, Salt, Sugar, Flour, Ketchup, etc.

**Los Angeles Hawkeyes, let’s do our part and help the LA Regional Food Bank achieve their goal, and see that no one goes hungry in Los Angeles County!

Iowa Gamewatch #8: October 26, 2013 Iowa vs Northwestern at 9:00 A.M. – No Raffle

 

Is there such a thing as a good loss?  If there is, Iowa was a prime example of that; after coming up short against the 4th ranked Ohio State Buckeyes 34-24.  It’s hard to argue that the Hawks didn’t surprise most of the country (including us Hawkeye fans) by hanging in tough against a very talented Buckeye squad late into the 4th quarter.  A loss is a loss none the less, which leaves Iowa at 4-3 on the season; needing two more wins to become bowl eligible.

The Hawks are looking to pick up where they left off, returning home to face Northwestern.  The Wildcats have owned the Hawks in recent years, but this year injuries have plagued the Northwestern offense.

A Hawkeye win will rest on the shoulders of the coaches to keep the team at the same level of play as last week. The offense showed what it’s capable of, consistency will be the key. The defense has had trouble maintaining mobile quarterbacks, but is still improving.  Get the secondary up to speed, and this defense could far exceed expectations.

Please join us at either one of the two official game watch Barney’s locations and enjoy 35% of food and 50% of beverages to any Iowa fan who wears something with Iowa on it (offer valid during the game only).

If you would like to show your LA Hawkeye pride, then don’t forget to order your LA IOWA Club t-shirt. T-shirts are now in stock and available at the Santa Monica and Pasadena Barney’s Beanery locations! They can be purchased for $15.

Iowa Gamewatch #7: October 19, 2013 Iowa vs Ohio St. at 12:30 P.M. – Santa Monica Raffle

The Hawkeyes head to the bye week mulling over fundamental mistakes made in last week’s loss to Michigan State.  Mistakes so frustrating, that even keeled Coach Ferentz made headlines this week, vowing that Iowa would never punt return again.

Whether coach was just blowing off steam, or is dead serious; clearly Iowa needs to take this week to re-address the basic fundamentals of football…you know; tackling, blocking, making sure punters actually kick the ball.

Next week Iowa faces a huge roadblock heading to Columbus, Ohio to take on top ranked Ohio State.  Most pundits will write off Iowa’s chances, but has anyone else noticed the Hawks tend to play better on the road than at home?  Will it be enough to knock off the Buckeyes?

Please join us at either one of the two official game watch Barney’s locations and enjoy 35% of food and 50% of beverages to any Iowa fan who wears something with Iowa on it (offer valid during the game only).

This week’s halftime raffle will be at SANTA MONICA. Make sure to check in with one of the hosts for your 1st FREE raffle ticket for some great Iowa gear.  Don’t worry, additional raffle tickets may be purchased at the rate of 2 tickets for $1 on up to as many tickets as you would like!

If you would like to show your LA Hawkeye pride, then don’t forget to order your LA IOWA Club t-shirt. T-shirts are now in stock and available at the Santa Monica and Pasadena Barney’s Beanery locations! They can be purchased for $15.

All money from T-shirt and raffle ticket purchases go directly to the LA Iowa Club to help pay for costs associated with the Club as well as provide funds to support scholarships and other events.  Without your support, we would not be able to realize these goals.
