  1. I agree completely about tailgating. It’s an event that lures everyone at the perfect time in the midst of a having an awesome team! Any home game besides the homecoming game would be successful.

    • I also like the tailgating idea. If it were on Parents Weekend, it would give them something different to do! Plus if they haven’t already been to the Saturday lunches on Mom or Dad’s weekend, they could at least see the interaction of all the SCC’s!

  2. Let’s tailgate! It’s convenient for everyone since it will be on a Saturday afternoon and will be the easiest way for everyone to mingle.
