2014 Tailgate Season is Here!

Welcome Southeast Pennsylvania Parents Association Members!

Navy-Marine Corps Memorial StadiumThis Saturday, November 15, Navy plays their last home game of the season against Georgia Southern at  Navy – Marine Corps Stadium.!!!  Game Time is 3:30 PM, but if you are an alumni or any other SPPA member who would like to help set up for the tailgate, please arrive around 10:00 AM.   With all hands on deck, we should be set up by 11:00.  If you’re not able to make it to the game, at least send down some home-made desserts for our midshipmen. 

If you are bringing food, please don’t forget to go fill out the Tailgate spreadsheet (see below) and please let us know what you are bringing so we can plan appropriately.

Each home game we will feature a class to be that week’s TAILGATE CAPTAINS. Tailgate Captains have the privilege of leading the rest of our Pennsylvania parents in showing up with the most personnel, setting up, bringing or sending desserts, serving our MIDs after the game, and/or tearing down and cleaning up after the tailgate. The class with the most volunteers all season will get their year and names added to the brand new ”Wall of Fame” to be installed on the SPPA trailer this year! Cool huh!

Class Captains this week are the CLASS OF 2018!

USNA Tailgating Tips for First-Timers

This info applies to all home games:

If you are bringing food, please don’t forget to visit the Tailgate spreadsheet  to note what you will be bringing.

When the spreadsheet opens up, click on the tab at the bottom of the page which corresponds to the specific game, and please let us know what type of dessert, in the dessert column, you are bringing so we can plan appropriately.  (When it looks like we may not have enough desserts for the mids, we will go out and purchase more.  So, to avoid the last minute anxiety and logistical nightmare of running to BJ’s please  “register” your dessert.)

Drop-off can be accommodated along Farragut Road by calling 215.205.9318 or 267.467.1536 (my number) and we can meet you roadside for a drop-off.

Please pass this information long to your son or daughter and have them tell everyone about it. All MIDS are invited!

And remember, we will not be coming in off of Farragut Road any more.  Rather, we will be entering Gate #5 off of Taylor Avenue and Cedar Park Road.

You can e-mail or call me with any questions.
