      Do the Hall of Fame inductees get honored at half time of the game? That is the only reason I would go to the game instead of the meet. What is the concensus here. Also, is there going to be an alumni meet?

      I’m pretty sure the inductees are not honored at half time during the game (not that I have ever really paid attention to a game before)… that’s saved for the Homecoming King and Queen. If you remember, I was Homecoming King all four years. 8)

      Last I have read, the alumni meet is at 6:00 PM and induction at 7:30 (I just thought, I am going to be starving by the end of this). It blows there is a swim meet scheduled right at the football game. I would like to see the meet, but I will have wife and two-year old in tow and it would be far nicer to let my kid run around outside than in a stuffy high school natatorium. Couple that with the ability to drink beer, eat brauts, talk as loud as I want and see old chums… I am pretty certain I will be going to the game.

      I’d rather go to the meet. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to see the team swim again this year, so it would provide a good opportunity in a nice pool. If we had a good cheering section it would be pretty cool. We could always grill in the parking lot beforehand. Plus, they’ve been cracking down on tailgating at the football game the past couple of years, so who knows how that would go.

      They’ll be in Wheaton sometime in January, I’d assume you could make the 5 mile (approx) drive to see them there.

      I am very undecided where I would rather be, but will most likely follow the crowd of other K swimmers.

      i’d probably like to go to the relay meet, but i still have a brother on the team who i’d like to see race (as well as the new froshies). the football game is fun…..maybe mr. kurtz’s roommate can come back and drive a bus to jenison so we can all get drunk at the meet

      This weekend, the football team makes a trip down to Texas for its opening game. I fully expect that they will return with half the roster injured, especially considering that nearly that many are carrying injuries as we speak. As homecoming approaches and more games pass, you may want to keep your eye on that. It may impact your decision. Of course, I have noticed that the football game does not seem to be a priority when attending the football game.

      We could go to the relay meet (Jenison, right?) and tailgate in their parking lot. I don’t see why that’d be any less fun than the football game. πŸ™‚

      The only problem would be that it is in fact a high school, and I am not sure of the laws for having alcohol on a high school’s grounds are, but I would guess they are strict. Vic and I had discussed that though, because it could be a lot of fun.

      I too, would rather go to the relay meet. Robbins is really screwing up this weekend. Can he just skip the half time festivities?

      Also, where is said relay meet. Is it close enough that both can be attended?

      P fau- you can tailgate without alcohol, you drunk. πŸ˜‰

      Cheadle – the relay meet is at Jenison H.S. which is about 45 minutes north of Kzoo. It’s a nice pool (they had MIAAs there last year).

      No you can’t.

      Yeah, seriously, not possible… maybe things change when you have a child, but before that, alcohol rules still apply.

      BTW: No to the alumni meet on Sunday.

      Friday at 6 is much better

      I think it will end up that younger alumni (a few years out) want it on Sunday and the rest will want it on Friday.

      Sunday works better for me (despite the hangover) because I don’t know exactly when I’ll be arriving (if I can even come this year).

      But, if I CAN be there Friday, I suppose 6pm would be cool. What’s the argument against it?
