Well then you should stop by cookie baking on Friday! Cookie baking will be from 3:30-5:00 on Friday at Rallyhouse. Stop by 2204 Dwight Way and ring the doorbell! We will be making cookies to bring to midnight singing, making blindfolds for the Pappy statue, and learning some songs for gameday! Feel free to stop by at any time throughout the event! Make sure to mask up!
Do you want to eat freshly made cookies and sing Cal songs at the Campanile? Join us for this fun pre-game tradition for a night of fun! Meet at the Campanile at 11:50! You do not need to know the songs in order to participate- just stop by and listen. The event should be done around 12:15, so plan a safe route home accordingly! NO RALLY COMM GEAR AT THIS EVENT.

As Seen On TV/the Jumbotron: Spellout! Come dressed in your best plain white shirt/sports bra/shirtless fit and get a letter painted on you to become part of the best gameday job community out there. You’ll get front row seats, the opportunity to spell goofy words/phrases with your peeps, and tons of photos for the memories. This is a full gameday commitment, so make sure you prioritize Spellout on the post-meeting form if you want to join! I look forward to painting you in beautiful Blue & Gold and it’s like I always say, I can’t spell SPELLOT without U <3
Stop by the walking banner this gameday! We go blindfold Pappy, sing Cal songs, participate in Sproul Rally, and then walk up to the stadium, spreading school spirit along the way! (Anyone but spellout and cannon crew can participate) See you there!
Picture this: A beautiful day, the excitement in the air, the anticipation of the first kickoff of Cal’s Football season. The California Victory Cannon has just been fired and the Bench is electrified, Rally Comm is cheering and screaming, Cal Band is playing beside us, and we are preparing to do our traditional Card Stunt. But above all this excitement stands our California Banner, marking the Bench and the greater Memorial Stadium, as Bear Territory. Enrique, our Director of Security, needs your help in guarding the California Banner during the game! Be sure to sign-up for this gameday job in the post-meeting sign-in form to help Enrique protect our glorious banner!
The fundamentals of an amazing gameday experience: Friends, Food, and Firing the California Victory Cannon. If you want to obtain all three, the best way to do so is to sign up for Cannon Crew! Come learn about the history of the only student-run cannon in the nation, get to know older and newer members, and hang out with two of the most spirited members of the Committee: Mark and Julia. AND of course: fire the cannon and unleash Oski’s Mighty Thunder!!! If you’re interested in taking part in this unique and memorable tradition, sign up on the post-meeting form or in the agenda!
~~~~~ String Crew ~~~~~
String Crew is cancelled due to rain :( Stay tuned for card sorting power-hours soon to make up for the missing string crew for members trying to earn pins!
This game is probably gonna be cold…and maybe wet…BUT NEVER FEAR! Waving flags during the game will keep you nice and toasty! Make sure you’ve gone to a flag waving practice and bring a mask, water, rugby, khakis, close-toed shoes, and a raincoat/poncho if you want. SEE YOU THERE!
Wanna be on the field for the kick off! Sign up for tunnel crew! Tunnel Crew consists of raising up the Windflags when the team runs out or holding the giant “This is Bear Territory” on the field. The only jobs this conflicts with is Cannon Crew and Spell Out. If you have any questions feel free to slack me (Joseph G) or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
