Beavs fans’ cutouts will save trees
Oregon State is the latest in sports to join the cutout parade, but the school is adding a twist to those wanting a visual presence in Reser Stadium this season.
Fans can purchase a cutout for display at OSU’s home football games this season. Through a partnership with local car dealers and One Tree Planted, a tree will be planted for each cutout in the Diamond Lake Ranger District, which sustained heavy damage during the 2017 Umpqua North Complex fire.
The school began to sell cutouts Thursday, and will continue to take orders well into November. Cutouts purchased by Nov. 2 will be on display at the Beavers’ season opener Nov. 7 against Washington State.
The price is $30 for students, $40 to season ticket holders and $50 to the general public. For $150, Oregon State will have the cutout signed by coach Jonathan Smith and delivered to the fan’s home.
Fans can purchase cutouts on the osubeavers.com website.
The school will communicate with fans as to where their cutout is located.
Oregon State is encouraging fans to wear Beavers gear in their photos but it is not mandatory.
Oregon State also plans to sell about 30 lifesize cutouts for placement on the Reser Stadium sidelines. The cost is $1,000 for the general public, and $900 to season ticket holders.
The school will ship cutouts after the season for $25.
