San Francisco, CA Earlier this year 415 Chapter president Leroy Bermudez decided to experience watching a home game being played at Candlestick Park from across the country in New York. He contacted NYC Chapter president Miguel Ramirez and let him know he was coming to town. Just before leaving for New York, Leroy saw a flyer being passed around by the New York Chapter welcoming the 415 Chapter to New York.
Leroy said that upon arrival Miguel and his chapter members none of whom he had ever met before welcomed him with open arms and took good care of him during his visit. He was amazed to see the amount of 49er fans sporting their niner gear on game day. He said even local NY Giants fans came up to him and commented on how they had never seen so many 49er fans in one place in New York.
While watching the game at Off The Wagon other 49er fans(non chapter members) who had come in to watch the game joined in. It was a good time and they confirmed they will be back to watch with the NYC Chapter.
Miguel and his NYC Chapter made his trip a memorable one and now Leroy is looking forward seeing a few of them who will be traveling to San Francisco for upcoming games. He said he will be sure to show them how we do it here in San Francisco.
