I have the contacts at the association. We had planned to host active duty members at the Fine Mess last year but S.U. arranged a mass tailgate / pre-game party for all of those coming down from Drum. We did have a rep, Jim Swords, and his son at the game. Jim spoke with the group and drew the 50-50 winner. If Cuse is planning on a pregame event again, the attendees would most likely rather stay with their brothers but we can check into it.
The senior guys might be interested in the official thing...a bunch of the Sgts and Pvts would probably enjoy our tailgate. We could also just host them for like an hour and they could head over to the quad...
Bees and Reed, just go through the link and buy them in your name. We already hit the threshold for SU to get recognized. Another option is to throw your donation to the Fine Mess...we are hoping to host some troops to a tailgate on that day.
Just sent you payment via paypal. I'll let our tailgate commanders chime in, but if we end up hosting more than a handful we probably will need to consider the financial impact. 50-50 funds the donation to the Association so we want to leave that intact.
Put the check in the mail last night after work. I just wanted to warn you, it literally took almost 2 weeks for my mother (Vero Beach) to get the mothers day card I sent her from Chattanooga but its on its way.
