TEMPE, Ariz. – There are 41 days until the Arizona State University football team kicks off the 2014 season against Weber State on Aug. 28 at Sun Devil Stadium, but the team’s annual trip to Camp Tontozona in Payson, Ariz., is just over three weeks away.
Immerse yourself in the history and tradition of Sun Devil Football in Payson, Ariz., with the Sun Devil Club’s third annual Camp Tontozona Experience on Friday, Aug. 15. Activities include two golf tournaments and a steak dinner at The Rim Club, as well as sponsorship options and an opportunity to watch the Sun Devils’ final practice at Camp Tontozona on Aug. 16.
“Camp Tontozona is an important tradition and a staple of our community, not only for Sun Devil Athletics, but Arizona State University as a whole,” Sun Devil Club Board Member Thomas Gardner said. “As Chairman of these events, I am honored to also assist in deepening the long standing relationship ASU has shared with the City of Payson over the course of many, many years. We all view this week as an opportunity to burnish these traditions with such historical significance. Please make it a part of your future!"
Serious golfers can sign up for the 2014 Tontozona Invitational at The Rim Club, which includes golf, lunch, a steak dinner and more. Winners will be recognized on the field prior to the ASU vs. UCLA football game on Thursday, Sept. 25.
A secondary tournament at the Payson Golf Course is available for causal golfers and includes golf, drink tickets and a t-shirt.
The experience will be capped off with a steak dinner and wine at The Rim Club, and the evening will include an awards ceremony for the top three teams and individuals from the Tontozona Invitational, as well as speeches from head coach Todd Graham and other notable ASU football coaches, student-athletes and administrators. Dinner is included for Tontozona Invitational participants.
Join more than 5,000 fellow members of Sun Devil Nation at the team’s final practice at Camp Tontozona on Aug. 16. Practice is set to begin at 10 a.m., and Sun Devil Athletics marketing, and sales and service staff will be on hand with schedule posters and other promotional material. Sparky’s Stadium Shop will also be open.
Fans who are unable to make it to Payson can still show their support by becoming a sponsor of Camp Tontozona and Sun Devil Football.
