2015 Banquet in Seattle/Renton
Every year, Seahawker Booster Chapters from all over the planet, gather for a banquet in the Seattle area.
Members of the Spokane Valley Seahawkers Booster Club traveled to Seattle to attend the banquet being held on Saturday, May 30th. The group stayed in the Hilton Garden Inn in Renton just minutes away from the Renton Pavilion where the banquet was held.

Getting pictures taken with the Conference Trophy, Sea Gals and Marshawn, Russel and Richard!
Sea Gals were selling raffel tickets for all kinds of Seahawk prices!
We munched down on some great food and watched highlights from the 2014 season.
After our meal was complete, a spokesman from the Seahawks introduced Ryan Murphy. Ryan spoke to the boosters describing the call he received to play with the Seahawks.
A little info about Ryan: With their eighth and final pick of the 2015 NFL Draft, the Seahawks selected 6-foot, 214-pound Oregon State safety in the seventh round.
Here are three things to know about the Seahawks' newest defensive back:
1. He's Close Cousins with Marshawn Lynch
2. He Started 39 Games at Oregon State
3. He Had Just Put His Son To Sleep When He Got the Call
To close out the banquet, raffel prizes where handed out. One of our very own members brought home one of the prizes!
A GOOD TIME WAS HAD BY ALL!
Is It September Yet?
