What a game vs. the Ravens last week!! Let’s keep the undefeated streak at home going with a win against the San Diego Chargers.
Plus Browns Backers, this week is our “QB Jersey Sunday”! So dig through your closets and find your “best” Browns QB jersey from 1988-2018 to wear to one of our viewing sites. It’s the one day of the year when you can show off your Spergon Wynn or Ty Detmer jersey with pride!
Also, we are excited to announce that we will be placing a second order of our club 30th Anniversary t-shirts. So you’ve got one last chance to get one of this year’s limited edition shirts (technically, each season they’re all limited edition, but it sounds cooler this way). Payment is required in advance and we do not plan on ordering any extras, so act now, get a couple for yourself and finish your Christmas shopping early!
Short-sleeve shirts are only $20 and $23 for long sleeve. The last day to place your order will be Sunday, October 21st. So please see your site coordinator to order your shirt! Second order shirts should be available for pickup in early November. Don’t miss out!!
There is an electronic option to order your t-shirt. Just send your name, email, shirt size and sleeve type (long or short) to WDCABBC@gmail.com and pay in advance via Venmo or PayPal as a friend.
That was a tough loss last week, but it’s time to help our Browns bounce back vs. the Baltimore Ravens. Let’s keep the Browns undefeated at home with a Sunday win!!! Show your Cleveland Pride by watching the game at one of our 3 viewing sites.

2018 is a huge year for our club and the Browns. The Washington DC Area Browns Backers Club turns 30 this year and your leadership team has planned several ways to commemorate this milestone.
Dan Irwin, site coordinator at Blackfinn, has created our awesome 30 Year logo which we used on our T-shirts and membership gift. Click here to check our new merchandise.
Our VP Kristen McIntyre has created a 30th Anniversary page where we will be posting special announcements throughout the season. So please visit the page often for Trivia hints, theme Sundays, the Browns fight song (yes, we have a fight song!) and so much more!
The Cleveland Browns have made a lot of moves this off-season, and so has our club! This year we have three NEW viewing sites for fans to meet up and cheer on our team.
