Drink and food specials will be available with a DJ providing music during time outs and for the after party. There is plenty of room and TV’s for our family atmosphere, kids are always welcome, as we watch a very important Raiders “dress rehearsal preseason game” in Canada. We know this is a very early start time for a meeting/game day watch party, BUT we hope you can join us as we gather as One Nation, One Family, 2nd To No One, in Porterville. GO RAIDERS!


Our 29th year as a recognized Booster Club of the Oakland Raiders kicked off at our July 11th meeting. We thank everyone who came out and signed up for membership. Even though we are keeping our shirt inventory low this year, we are glad to say that almost everybody walked away with their shirts. We have reloaded with a second shirt order so we will be ready at our August 8th meeting. Please remember that all ladies may request a Ladies cut shirt instead of a regular shirt with their membership. Thank You for your support Heartland Of Raider Nation, GO RAIDERS!
