With the group outing just over a week away, it's probably time we start putting together a plan for the tailgate.
We have 18 people sitting with the group this year, but the tailgate is open to anyone. If you aren't sitting with the group and plan on attending the tailgate, please mention it in the comments below so we have an idea of how many people to plan for.
I plan on parking in the same location as last year unless there are any objections or better ideas (Woodward between Henry and Sibley). There is plently of safe parking in the area for $20 and there are a couple $5 and $10 lots if you are daring and don't really care too much about your car's well being. I know the last time I went, the parking attendant asked me if I needed to save any parking spaces next to me for others in my group...I'm not going to try to get them to save a ton of spots, but it would be nice to have 1 or 2 other vehicles next to me so we have a little more room to spread out. I will be getting there at 9:30am. Are there any volunteers to get there that early to get those parking spots?
I will bring a grill, a couple tables and a big pot of chili. I know Enforcer is bringing some food...I think burgers and brats. We need people to bring plates, bowls, plastic ware, condiments, buns, chips, cups, beverages, and anything else you can think of. Please don't offer to bring something and then show up at noon!
Tickets will be handed out at the tailgate. If you don't know if you can make it, email me your address at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send them to you.
Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
