First!?!

86Cane

We will be joined by Mary Clark from the Palm Beach Canes Club shortly for a LIVE chat!

JCane

I guess I go the tie in the time but I'm only 1a. Bummer! :)

Apparently Clements liked the visit today per Rivals:

That's probably a good thing for the Canes: Clements says Michigan holds a slight edge over Miami right now, and Georgia rounds out his top three.

Streeter is looking better and better. The WR competition is going to be more fun daily. Hopefully everyone will stay healthy.

Palm Beach 'Canes Club

Hi everyone, this is Mary

86Cane

Mary tell us about the Palm Beach Canes club? What's happening in the 561?

Palm Beach 'Canes Club

Thanks for having me here, tonight. I am a huge fan of 'Canespace!

canezilla

mary what is going on at the ale house?

Palm Beach 'Canes Club

The Palm Beach ‘Canes Club was founded in May, 2008. We are the alumni organization for Palm Beach county, but almost all of our events are also open to UM fans/supporters. There are around 7,000 alumni in Palm Beach county, but there are even more fans. We are still in the process of trying to get the word out to everyone that we exist.

Palm Beach 'Canes Club

We have 61 paid members, but we have approximately 300 people who are actively involved in the Palm Beach 'Canes Club. Membership dues are $25/year. Members receive discounted admission at some events. You can become a member at www.561canes.com.

What's up fellas

Palm Beach 'Canes Club

Although many of our events in the fall involve football in some way, we also do networking lunches and happy hours, a summer send-off event for kids from Palm Beach county attending the []_[]. There are over 70 entering freshman from Palm Beach county heading to the []_[] this year. We also have philanthropic events such as the Walk for Animals and Habitat for Humanity. This fall we will have a holiday party before the bowl game watch and we have a Habitat build in February, 2010.

86Cane

Tell us about your BIG event with Steve Walsh and LT#36?

canezilla

mary,any other former players that are going to be there?

Palm Beach 'Canes Club

Our second-annual 2009 Football Season Kickoff Event is on Wednesday, August 19th at 7pm at Miller’s Ale House in East Boca, at 1200 Yamato Road. It was a great event last year with Steve Walsh and we have expanded it this year to include Lamar Thomas and Don Bailey Jr. will be emceeing.

Hey Mary, I think I was in your Latin class a few years ago, small world!

86Cane

Mary...Love the community involvement projects. Good idea to give back to the community when U can. Represent The U!

SlingBlade

is there any type of fee to go to the ale house that night...

Palm Beach 'Canes Club

Definitely a small world! haha

We have had several former players in the 561 stop by our mixers. You never know who could show up, but the ones that will be featured are Steve, Don, and Lamar. Steve and Lamar will be answering questions regarding their predictions for the upcoming year, analysis of 2009 and 2010 recruits, and who they expect to be breakout players this fall.



canezilla

my wife and i will be there

Palm Beach 'Canes Club

We will be raffling off a FSWho game day package for 2 including 2 game tickets and UMAA pre-game tickets, plus ‘Canes memorabilia signed by Lamar and Steve.

86Cane

Mary did I tell U that DBJ selected Jacory Harris and Javaris James and Eric Moncur and Sam Shields as his Canespace Legends of the Fall picks for 2009.

DBJ is special and he got 2 picks on offense and 2 on defense. But U only get one! Who do U think will have a breakout season for UM in 2009. It can be a freshman or a senior, doesn't matter.

Palm Beach 'Canes Club

No charge for the event. We will be selling raffle tickets and t-shirts, though, and the Ale House will have specials.

Palm Beach 'Canes Club

Okay, I might have put too much thought into this, or perhaps I have too many favorite players:

For newer players:

O: Mike James. I just like him and I hope he makes Baby J and Coop get better because they can feel him nipping at their heels.

D: Tie for me between Vaughn Telemaque, Marcus Forston and Marcus Robinson.

For older players:

O: I really want Baby J to have a good year. He has trimmed down and he looked good last Saturday. He just needs to stay healthy. I wish the same for Hankerson. I’m hoping the practice with Duper paid off. I thought he looked better on Saturday too. He held on to some passes.

D: Colin McCarthy. I want him to shut down Jonathan Dwyer and make him cry. Ditto for Eric Moncur. I also hope Christian Ponder is having nightmares about Sean Spence.

Clearly, I have big expectations for our D!

86Cane

Mary...I am a UM alumni and will be at the FSU UMAA pre-game party and then the game. Are U going to? We have five Canespacers going so far.

canezilla

25$ a year what does that include?

canechic

Sounds Fun, I will be in Miami getting Nicole settled in at UM, otherwise I would be there.

Palm Beach 'Canes Club

I will probably not be at the UMAA pre-party but my tailgate will be right next to it in the municipal parking lot. We are starting at 11am and will be grilling all day long and indulging in orange and green jello shots. All are welcome to stop by!

Canes.Fan.In.California

Yeah! Vaughn Telemaque is my LOF pick n D!! I have to help represent California!!!

Palm Beach 'Canes Club

The $25/year includes discounted admission to the events for which we charge. For example, a couple of weeks ago we had a networking luncheon at Bogarts in Boca and members received $10 off their lunch. It also covers programming costs, such as game watches.

86Cane

D: Colin McCarthy. I want him to shut down Jonathan Dwyer and make him cry. Ditto for Eric Moncur. I also hope Christian Ponder is having nightmares about Sean Spence.

Mary...I don't mean to get personal (respect) but are U married? Because if U are NOT and U keep talking like that around here U will have at least five proposals before we are through here at 8:30!

I guarantee it!!!

Palm Beach 'Canes Club

Speaking of game watches - I also coordinate all of those. They are our biggest events, and personally, the reason I wanted to start an alumni club in Palm Beach county. I think watching games alone is very bad luck and I didn’t know anyone when I moved up here to watch them with. So, as the director of all athletic-related programming, I try to make our game watches as fun as possible – like the more fun we are having, the more likely the ‘Canes will win. Towards the end of the season last year (GA Tech and Emerald Bowl) we had 100+ at the game watches. We do raffles of ‘Canes memorabilia, there are drink and food specials, pom poms, and several Sebastian the Ibis-eque C-A-N-E-S CANES cheers. Millers’ Ale House is a great venue for game watches and we are really excited for the 2009 season!

Palm Beach 'Canes Club

Just to clarify the location - it is Millers' Ale House in East Boca on Yamato right off I-95

canezilla

sounds good..

Palm Beach 'Canes Club

Lol. I'm single.

Palm Beach 'Canes Club

Yeah, Canes in California, I agree, Telemaque is awesome. Ed Reed is my favorite 'Canes player of all time so if Coach Shannon thinks he is at all like Ed Reed, I am behind him! I also like the reason he picked UM - that Coach Shannon let Telemaque's mom cut his hair.

86Cane

Mary...I picked Mike "Smiley" James also for my offensive LOF. That kid just seems like he will be special!

U mentioned high expectations for the Defense and the team this year. OK, now it's time to put U on the spot:

What is your honest and sincere season record prediction for the Canes this year?

canezilla

ooooooooooooooooooooooooh c.a.n.e.s

Aces & Canes

U never have to watch a game alone as long as canespace is around.

canezilla

anybody watch college football live today?pretty good piece on the canes kirk h.has us going 8-4

Palm Beach 'Canes Club

I drink the orange and green kool-aid more than anyone I know, so here is my spin on reality:

Optimistic: 12-1

Realistic: 10-3

Take it for what it’s worth. My philosophy is that if you love the ‘Canes enough, they will come back.

86Cane

Mary...I will be there at the event on Wednesday 8/19 in Boca and have some Canespace T-shirts for U and Ben Leis the club President and maybe even some to give out as prizes to the crowd.

I AM ENCORAGING ALL CANESPACERS FROM THE 305 TO THE 561 TO SHOW UP, HAVE A GOOD TIME AND HAVE YOUR CANESPACE GEAR ON!

Palm Beach 'Canes Club

I saw it at the gym today, Canezila. I like that Kirk is more optimistic for us than others despite his luckeye roots.

miamimike01

Me and RandyCane can't wait for Tally!!!

FSN FL just gave us some love, too! John Bunting (who could never get it together at UNC) gave JT12 some love.

86, what's the guest list look like for Tally?

PBCC, will you marry me? LOL

canezilla

it seems like every year he likes us huh?

Palm Beach 'Canes Club

Thanks so much for helping us promote this event, 86Cane. Looking forward to seeing you next week at the event and hope to see you in Trailerhassee for the Criminole beatdown!

LET'S GO 'CANES!!!!

86Cane

PBCC, will you marry me? LOL

Posted by: miamimike01 | August 10, 2009 at 08:30 PM

I told U so! LMAO

Aces & Canes

Kirk is always on our side, maybe its cause he's guilt stricken for that travesty the luckeyes put on us in the NC

canezilla

hurricane warning just issued for tally.board up the windows,hise the kids...

Palm Beach 'Canes Club

Miamimike01, I will have to reserve judgment until I can see how many orange and green jello shots you can handle in Tally! ;-)

and yes, Canezilla I think Kirk is really a 'Canes fan. Remember when he voted us the best college football team EVER back in 2005 when up against the 2004 USC Trojans?

86Cane

Mary...Roger that! Thanks for stopping by to get U some Canespace tonight. We love the LIVE chats and will do this again sometime. U are welcome to stay as long as U like, but I know U are busy too.

U are ALWAYS welcome around here. We have 5 women who blog here fairly regularly and we want MORE! Spread the word and...

GO CANES!!!
