The time has finally arrived.

I won’t be able to make it since I live in the Seattle area and I am not arriving in Spokane for the spring game until Friday night, but if you live in the Spokane area, I highly encourage you to stop by the Davenport this afternoon/evening and connect with Cougar-owned and/or Cougar-run businesses.
As noted in the tweet, WSU president Kirk Schulz will be delivering a keynote at 3 p.m., with the trade show starting at 4 p.m. It’s free to attend, and you can show up anytime up until 8 p.m.
Having been to the Seattle version, I can tell you these events are very cool. It’s informal, and you ‘ll get a chance to connect with other Cougs who could provide a service for you, meet some Coug luminaries, and maybe even make a friend or two in the process, like I did!
A sampling of what you’ll find:
