Dear Friends of Cornell Football,
WELCOME TO THE CFA BIG RED FOOTBALL ALUMNI!
As you know by now, the University does not allow us to use the name “Cornell”. Simply stated, The CFA Board of Directors is disappointed in the actions, and tactics, of the University Administrators.
Remember, we graduated from Cornell. We played football for Cornell. We are Cornell. The University Administrators cannot take that from us.
The Cornell Football Association was formed 25 years ago with the mission of keeping the football alumni connected. The mission of the CFA Big Red Football Alumni is to keep the football alumni connected.
To that end, our organization will conduct three major initiatives in the coming year.
- CFA tailgate parties at all home games
- Annual CFA Awards Day ceremony (October 26th, Ithaca Country Club)
- Annual CFA Golf Outing on Saturday, August 1st.
Now is the time to pull together and support the CFA Big Red Football Alumni. We can best show our strength, by sticking together as a large and vibrant membership group with solidarity in purpose and resolve. Specifically, we are asking for a major turnout on Saturday October 26th for our CFA Awards Day. Join us for the CFA tailgate event on Kite Hill prior to the the Brown game at Schoellkopf Field, followed by our CFA awards Day reception at Ithaca Country Club.
Regarding membership, dues will be $100 per calendar year. These funds will support our administrative costs and CFA tailgates. All other events will be priced at break-even numbers. For those of you that have already paid dues for 2019, please be advised that we are in the process of verifying if the University will be supplying season tickets to CFA members for home games as they have in the past. The CFA will honor our commitment irrespective of the universities position and we will send a CFA membership notice out soon.
Last, the CFA Big Red Football Alumni is not about money. We are about friendship, Camaraderie, and a common experience. If you want to be part of “us”, please join as a member, and join us at our CFA functions.
We hope to see you all on October 26th!
The CFA Board of Directors
Go Big Red!
