Per the Tailgating Coordinator...
Penn Staters and friends,
While we wait to cheer our boys on at the Orange Bowl, I would like to pass on some tailgating info for 2006 football season. While I would have liked to poll everyone like last year, the planners and I had a unanimous vote. The following tailgates were selected based on time of year, quality of opponent and special event weekends:
April 22nd, 2006 Blue-White Weekend (tentative date)
Sept 30th, 2006 Northwestern (Oktoberfest tailgate)
Oct 21st, 2006 Illinois (Homecoming)
I'm passing this along now so that you can be prepared to make hotel reservations. Hotel reservations for the regular season need to be made and PAID FOR IN FULL by the end of January (~$350/weekend/room). I would like to coordinate the effort, but cannot afford to front the cash for more than 1 room for the season. Please let me know if you'd be interested in helping out. I will be sending out a reminder in January.
As always, Madeline and Suzanne will be there for most homegames, if you happen to be in town for other weekends. Full 2006 schedule
Below are some interesting videos that I thought you'd get a kick out of.
