Weekly Events – Vaccination Required To Attend

8/30/2021
Dear Members;
Today the Quarterback Club is informing you that attendance at the weekly events this Wednesday and thereafter will be for vaccinated members only. This decision was made after discussions with Penn State Football on behalf of Coach Franklin regarding attendance of the players and Coach Franklin at the first weekly event on September 1st.  Obviously, the Athletic Department and the football program are going to great lengths to keep the players and coaches healthy and avoid contracting the Covid-19 virus. You may have seen the announcement last week from the Big Ten that a team will forfeit the game if it cannot field enough players that day.
Therefore, please do not attend this Wednesday or the following Wednesdays unless you have been fully vaccinated.  We will be using the honor system and relying on the honesty and loyalty of our members.
Also, the requirement to wear a mask remains since that is a Penn State policy and the Mount Nittany Club is a Penn State facility.
We all want the football team to remain healthy and to compete at full strength throughout the season. Your cooperation with this request is a way for the Quarterback Club to contribute to the team’s success this season.
We look forward to seeing you this Wednesday and throughout the season and thank you for your continued support.

SCQB Club 2021 Weekly Event Information

Thank you for joining the State College Quarterback Club (the “Quarterback Club”) for the 2021 football season. We very much appreciate your support. Membership cards and parking passes for this year were mailed on August 12, 2021. Some of you may have received them and others should be receiving them in the near future.

Excitement is building for the 2021 Penn State Football season as we are rapidly approaching our first weekly event on September 1st.

Being together in Beaver Stadium at our weekly events with Coach Franklin, Steve Jones, and our guest players is a large part of what makes the Quarterback Club so special. In light of this, and in an effort to protect our events and keep them as safe as reasonably possible for all, we are implementing two important additional measures this season. First, we will be moving to a “No Guests” policy. Weekly events are to be attended by members only. This will help to control the overall size of our gatherings. Secondly, lunches will be catered as individual boxed meals rather than our normal buffets. This catering change will alleviate high traffic areas and movement within the Mount Nittany Club, as well as creating more sanitary, safer dining conditions.

We hope everyone understands that we are making these changes out of an abundance of caution, and in an effort to have our events continue safely throughout the season. None of us wants to go back to virtual meetings if they can be avoided. And, if during the season conditions warrant it, we can always pivot and return to our normal guest policy and buffet dining.

As you know from our earlier communication, the Quarterback Club will be following all Penn State University indoor policies and procedures regarding Covid-19. Of course, these are subject to change throughout the season. At this time, Penn State’s COVID-19 guidance includes basic health, safety, and sanitation measures (staying home when sick, washing/sanitizing hands often, etc.) in addition to:

EVERYONE ATTENDING A WEEKLY EVENT AND/OR THE FOOTBALL BANQUET REGARDLESS OF VACCINATION STATUS IS REQUIRED TO WEAR A MASK AT ALL TIMES WHILE INSIDE THE MOUNT NITTANY CLUB, THE ALL SPORTS MUSEUM AND/OR THE PENN STATER HOTEL AND CONFERENCE CENTER EXCEPT WHILE YOU ARE ACTIVELY EATING OR DRINKING.

ALL ATTENDEES MUST BRING THEIR OWN MASK.

In addition, do not attend a weekly event or the Football Banquet if you are awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test or if, within 14 days prior, you: (i) have been diagnosed with COVID-19; (ii) have experienced any symptom of illness which may be associated with COVID-19; or (iii) have been in close contact with anyone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, is awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test, or has exhibited any symptom of illness which may be associated with COVID-19.

YOUR PRESENCE AT THE WEEKLY QUARTERBACK CLUB EVENTS HELD AT THE MOUNT NITTANY CLUB IN BEAVER STADIUM, AND THE FOOTBALL BANQUET HELD AT THE PENN STATER HOTEL AND CONFERENCE CENTER, INDICATES YOUR AGREEMENT THAT:

(1)  YOU WILL ADHERE TO ALL PENN STATE UNIVERSITY POLICIES, INCLUDING HEALTH AND SAFETY POLICIES SUCH AS MASKING IF APPLICABLE, THAT HAVE BEEN ISSUED AT THE TIME OF THE EVENT AND YOUR ACKNOWLEDGMENT THAT YOU ARE VOLUNTARILY PARTICIPATING IN THESE ACTIVITIES,
(2)  YOU WILL ADHERE TO ALL LOCAL AND STATE LAWS AND GUIDANCE FROM THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL REGARDING COVID-19 THAT ARE IN EFFECT AT THE TIME OF THE EVENT,
(3)  YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THE CONTAGIOUS NATURE OF COVID-19, THAT THERE IS A RISK YOU MAY BECOME EXPOSED TO AND/OR CONTRACT COVID-19 EVEN WITH ADHERENCE TO ALL PREVENTIVE MEASURES SINCE THE QUARTERBACK CLUB CANNOT PREVENT YOU FROM CONTRACTING COVID-19,
(4)  YOU ASSUME ANY AND ALL RISK OF EXPOSURE TO OR INFECTION BY IT OR ANY VARIANT THEREOF, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, PERSONAL INJURY, ILLNESS, SEVERE COMPLICATIONS, PERMANENT DISABILITY, AND/OR DEATH, AND
(5)  YOU FOREVER RELEASE AND WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO BRING SUIT AGAINST THE QUARTERBACK CLUB AND ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, AGENTS, OWNERS, EMPLOYEES, AFFILIATES OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVES IN CONNECTION WITH EXPOSURE, INFECTION, AND/OR SPREAD OF COVID-19 RELATED TO YOUR PARTICIPATION IN THE WEEKLY EVENTS AND/OR THE FOOTBALL BANQUET.

Finally, it is unknown what effect COVID-19 may have on the ability of the Quarterback Club to conduct in-person events. Depending on how circumstances change over time, or how Penn State’s policies and procedures change, or how local or state laws change, it may become necessary to switch from in-person events to holding our events in a virtual format as we did in 2020. Regardless of whether the Quarterback Club holds the weekly events in-person or virtually, the funds from your membership fees will be used by the Quarterback Club as they always have to make a contribution to the Football Program to support the Program and the players who bring us such joy and excitement throughout the season.

Thank you again for your support and we look forward to seeing you at the first weekly event in the Mount Nittany Club on September 1st. Until then……..Wisconsin, Wisconsin, Wisconsin!!

We are thrilled to tell you the State College Quarterback Club (the “Quarterback Club”) will be returning to in-person weekly Wednesday events this Fall. Once again, we will be able to join and socialize with our fellow Quarterback Club members in the Mount Nittany Club. We missed everyone and cannot wait to get back together again. To those who joined and participated in our virtual weekly events last year, thank you for your support during a difficult time for everyone.

The Quarterback Club is very excited to see the 2021 Nittany Lions in action this season. Please join us to hear insights from Head Coach James Franklin, the players, and others.</div>

As the official Penn State Football booster club, we invite you to join/renew your membership to the Quarterback Club to help continue our support of Penn State Football. Then join us throughout the season at our Wednesday weekly events. Your membership linchpins our financial support to the players, coaches, and staff.

The 2021 season will kick-off at noon against the Wisconsin Badgers at Camp Randall Stadium on Saturday, September 4

Our first weekly event will be held Wednesday, September 1<sup>st</sup> in the Mount Nittany Club of Beaver Stadium. Doors open at 11:00 am with access via Stadium Gate B, and for individuals who are handicapped, access will be available through the All Sports Museum entrance. BJC catering will again provide the buffet style lunches. Our weekly program begins at approximately 11:50 am, moderated by Steve Jones.  The event will be held each Wednesday (except October 13th due to the bye week) with the last event scheduled for November 24<sup>th</sup>. However, should we win the Big 10 East and play in the BIG 10 Championship Game, we will add an additional weekly event for December 1<sup>st</sup>. Please click the link below to read the document which describes the procedures to be followed when attending each weekly event.

SCQB Club 2021 Event Procedures

Depending on availability, two football players will join Steve Jones on stage for a discussion to gain insight into the upcoming football game from the players’ perspective. Following a photograph with the week’s corporate sponsor, Coach Franklin will take to the stage for an exclusive interview with Steve Jones for lively analysis of the upcoming game. Plus, you will have the opportunity to ask both the players and Coach Franklin questions. Other special guests and staff may join us as well.

Regarding the Covid-19 virus, the Quarterback Club will follow the mask wearing protocol for indoor activities established by the Centers for Disease Control and followed by Penn State University. Therefore, anyone attending a weekly event who has not been fully vaccinated is required to wear a mask when inside the Mount Nittany Club or the All Sports Museum.

The Quarterback Club membership levels and dues will remain the same as they were in 2019 and are as follows:

$100.00 – for Individual Membership – may apply for one Football Banquet ticket
$150.00 – for a Household Couple – may apply for two Football Banquet tickets
$175.00 – to join the “Coaches Circle” as an individual – may apply for two Football Banquet tickets
$200.00 – to join the “Coaches Circle” as a household couple – may apply for three Football Banquet tickets

In addition to the Football Banquet ticket options, “Coaches Circle” membership level includes prominent name recognition in the Penn State Football Banquet Program.

All membership levels include a parking pass for the weekly events.

Weekly event prices also will remain unchanged for the 2021 season. The weekly cost is $25 per member, and $30 per guest including children of all ages. Please remember, guests may only attend one weekly event per year as a non-member, and must accompany a Quarterback Club member. Due to the anticipated large turn-out of members, however, guests may not attend the first weekly event on September 1st.

We would like to thank the Penn State Athletic Department for covering the weekly parking and some facility rental costs. We appreciate the support of the Quarterback Club by Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics Sandy Barbour and the entire Athletic Department office and staff.
