Navy opens their season this Friday with an away game vs
Florida Atlantic. The Dixons sent out an invitation for a
"tailgater" at their home. Please contact Chuck or Deb asap
if you plan to attend.
Home Football Games- Starts Saturday, September 9th
Our tailgate area remains the same for this season. We are
located in spot #3 on the Gold Side near the Courthouse.
Kick-off for all home games is set for 3:30pm. We usually
start setting up for the class tailgater around 11am.
We are in need for tents to be set up for the food area.
Our tent was damaged at the last home game and Santa didn't
send a replacement. If you have one, please bring it. We
could use 4 tents.
If you have a table, please bring it with you as well. We
usually have 3-4 tables for food (some times we need more)
and any extras can be used back on the walking path for
dining. Fred will be bringing the generator for crock pots
and warming trays.
Please bring at least one dish (appetizer, main entree, side
or dessert) to the tailgater share. Also, bring your own
drinks and chairs. We will be hosting some midshipmen after
the game so extra chips and dip or desserts to put out after
the game would be terrific too.
Remember that you don't have to stay with the theme. It
only serves as a guideline. As an example, Chuck's
Amaretto Cake goes with all themes and is mandatory at every
tailgater. Any dish, dessert and/or shot is welcome!
Here are the much anticipated themes for the 2017 Tailgater

The Kruegers will again be hosting the halftime tailgater in
the Admiral's Row parking area on the gold side. A halftime
cooler will be at the class tailgater site for you to place
your halftime spirits in. Cooler will be labeled. For the
first game, only what you put in the cooler should be taken
by you at halftime. The Kruegers will mark any left over
beverages for the following game that are fair game for all.
Cooler will be available at class pre-game tailgater all
