Hawk's Nest Seating Signup Is Sept. 7
University of Iowa Alumni Association (UIAA) will host the second annual Hawk's
Nest Seating Signups Saturday, Sept. 7 at a surprise location.
The location will be announced at noon, Sept. 6, on radio station Z102.9,
by e-mail, and on www.iowalum.com/hawksnest. That morning, the Hawk's Nest
committee and Coach Alford will appear on the Schulte and Swann Show on Z102.9
at 8 a.m. Players, coaches, and cheerleaders are slated to make appearances
The Hawk's Nest is the student spirit section that roots for the Hawkeyes
at home games in Carver Hawkeye Arena. The Hawk's Nest is in its fourth year
of existence and is one of the largest student-run spirit sections in college
basketball. The UIAA sponsors the Hawk's Nest, which is run by eight members
of the S.T.A.T. Ambassadors
"The Hawks Nest wants to make the seating event something that basketball
fans look forward to since basketball season is still a couple months away,
" said Pete Nelson, seating sign-up co-coordinator.
Last year's event had eager fans camping outside the Fieldhouse three days
in advance for the best seats in the Nest.
"This year's members are true diehards as tickets were sold before
school started," added Kelly Robbins, Head Hawk of the Hawk's Nest.

Nest web page for more details: http://www.iowalum.com/hawksnest/.
