More than 200 former University of Arkansas athletes are expected to return to Fayetteville this week as the Razorback “A” Club will host its reunion. Events are scheduled for Friday and Saturday with Razorbacks traveling from as far as Seattle and Atlanta to attend. “I can remember when this event started and it has grown every year,” said Razorback Foundation President and Executive Director Harold Horton. “The one thing about athletics is there is a bond and there is a close one between a lot of our teams. This event is a way for people to come back and see friends they may not have seen in years. We have had several groups come back from year to year and enjoy it. The event does nothing but great things for the University of Arkansas.” Activities start with a Friday morning golf outing and a fish fry is scheduled for Friday evening that all former letterwinners are invited to attend. Saturday will include a breakfast beginning at 8:30 a.m. that is scheduled to be attended by University of Arkansas Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long and Arkansas head football coach Bobby Petrino. The A Club is open to all former Razorback student-athletes and includes a variety of benefits including ticket priority, access to the A Club rooms at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium and War Memorial Stadium, invitations to special events and participation in the voting process for the University of Arkansas Sports Hall of Honor. A Club dues are $50 annually. For more information or to join the A Club contact the Razorback Foundation at 479-443-9000.
