NCAA NESCAC Tailgate

Postby purpleandwhite » Wed Feb 27, 2019 8:27 pm

New thread. Now that the official pysch sheets are up (subject to diving selections) parents from several NESCAC teams have floated the idea of a Conference tailgate for parent and alums. The GAC has a section of the parking lot reserved for RVs and the tailgating parties for Y Nationals, while not as good as Arrowhead Stadium or Alabama, are pretty good.

Please post if you plan to drive to the meet and also let us, I'm acting on behalf of parents from 3 teams right now but hope get the fourth involved soon , know if you are interested.

We are in the final stages of organizing the tailgate. Going over the rules of engagement with facility/organizers (wine/beer only no kegs, no hard alcohol, etc). We are probably going to schedule it Thursday afternoon but stay tune for more information.

Looks like we have

Amherst
Bowdoin
Wesleyan

We are reaching out now to:

Conn
Tufts
Williams

We need contact at Bates.

We now have Amherst, Bowdoin, Conn, Tufts and Wesleyan confirmed interest. Still waiting to hear from Bates and Williams.

We've created a Facebook Page.

Tell us your NESCAC team, and the NESCAC athlete(s) you are supporting .

Date is Thursday March 21st. In the coming day we'll post location (we are reserving section of the parking lot so need a headcount) and the rules of engagement (no kegs, hard liquor, etc).

Thanks to all that participate in the NESCAC tailgate. We had more than 100 people and representatives from all teams. (Even some interlopers from Denison showed up to check out the action). One observation from the deck is that there is much more "conference support" for individual teams and athletes from NESCAC than NCAC (its the Hatfield versus McCoy thing) or UAA (hard to build much conference identify across two time zones).
Today's is hump day. Good luck to all
