West Valley Watch Location
AZ1 has been doing some checking around this off-season for possible new and better locations to gather at and watch the games. Though we are still narrowing down the East valley we believe we have found the West Valleys home. Starting this season we will be gathering at the brand new, and a appropriately named, Cowboys Saloon located at 9824 W Northern Ave in Glendale, AZ. its across from where our old home the Sandbar used to be. WE ARE GOING HOME!
Cowboys Saloon has put together the best menu we have ever had featuring $6 Burgers $5 Apps and Kids Menu. Including club special drinks The Salty Cowboy or Margarita for $6 and domestic buckets for $15. We have a private room with its own bar and restroom that seats 50 but have been given the right to spill out into the whole place. We hope you are all as excited as we are to calling the Cowboys Saloon home for many seasons to come.
We will be there for all the regular season games excluding holidays but the opening game of the season is our BIG ONE. We will be there in large numbers and will have a free raffle item. Everyone that attends will get one raffle ticket which will take place immediately after the game. Lets start this season right TOGETHER! We will see you there September 11th @ 1:30pm as we open the season at home against the Giants.

Mickey Spagnola interview with Dallas Martinez Jr. at the Road Trippin 2015 party at Coach & Willies in Chandler
A Message from the President
I would first like to introduce myself, I’m Dallas Martinez, President of this fantastic club. I am a proud father loyal family man and die hard DALLAS COWBOYS FAN!!!! There are many new changes you, as members, may not be aware of. We have had a change of leadership and administration and are currently starting a new chapter in AZ1. With almost six thousand members,we are growing everyday and expanding back into familiar territory. With that I wanted to let you all know where it is I see this going and the vision I have for Arizona’s #1.
First thing was to secure the locations that fit us best! We looked around extensively, touring each place, looking at the size of the venue, number of TV’s, priority sound, menu and family friendliness. I believe the Administration has accomplished this and we will release the new locations shortly. We are working closely with each location to make sure they are prepared and ready to accommodate the growing number of members we have. This includes menu items and adequate servers. Who doesn’t love good food with a great team?! “Patience is a virtue” is a button I can’t put on Facebook but am requesting lol. I want to thank each and every Admin who graciously took their time through this process… Thank you all!!
My second step with our club is to act upon on a phrase we say often… “We are a family oriented club”. We have been and always will be this. But we want to be more than just a Sunday game and more than just a club. With that, we will be involved and encouraging everyone to join in charitable events. As we are a “Family Oriented Club” we can do more than just for our own club family, like expanding to the families in our communities through interactive charity events. This will strengthen us and benefit those who are in our #1 state. We currently are set to start a softball league in which various fan clubs of different teams play each other in a friendly tournament to promote the “Fans Against Violence” movement. We also work with the Salvation Army Christmas Angel Tree, and a Cancer Awareness fund raiser for Banner Medical Centers, an ALS benefit as well as assisting veterans who served our country in various ways through out the year. Proceeds to benefit these organizations will not only improve the quality of life for others but bring us together in ways we have not done yet. I Feel it’s time we show Arizona that even though we wear a different logo, AZ1 still takes care of home.
Furthermore, raffles will be held occasionally and not weekly, as well as having silent auctions and live auctions of autographed items. This is yet another more exciting way to have the chance of winning all autographed items… just ask any of the winners. I wish I could have gotten a picture of the guy who won the Bob Lilly jersey, he was so overcome as a Dallas fan he was in tears. That’s what we love most about this club. Its the same reason I wanted to be apart of it. Bringing joy, players and unforgettable memories to you the member and seeing that in your faces. My whole life has been as Cowboys fan but until this group and its leaders, I had never met a single player. Never watched a game on a TV with hundreds of die hard’s. Now, 34 years later, because of it I have. Now I can give these things to my own kids, you can give it to your kids and to you!
The foundation that was laid before me was solid and truly has blessed us all. I’m now looking to set up skyscrapers on that. Reaching for the stars, with you all beside us as we make our community that much better, is what will bind us as a club. I hope that you all share the same sense of giving as much as receiving and build with us!!! Together we can make this club be more than we ever imagined. Here’s to you and yours but most importantly… US. Lets change the game, the starting line is right here_______
THERE’S ONLY ONE….
