To find watch locations, vist the Nebraska Alumni Site and choose the region you will be traveling too.  Chapters always enjoy out of town guests! 


And if your travels take you to Cheyenne, WY, or if you live in Cheyenne, Old Chicago at 1734 Meadowland Drive (307-634-3400) would be happy to be your watch location.

Please note, Coloradans for Nebraska is no longer partnering with Fox and Hound.  Fox and Hound made a decision that they no longer wanted to provide a discount to Coloradans for Nebraska Members nor provide a donation to the Co4NU Scholarship Fund.  The Board of Directors decided we wanted your membership to continue to have value at all of our partner locations so have secured new locations for our members to enjoy games and discounts.  We are happy that our new corporate sponsor, Old Chicago, has stepped forward in two regions of Colorado to provide our members many places to utilize member discounts.
