Charger Parents :: Northwood Tailgating Info

Sandy Balone
Hillsdale Parents Booster Club

Hillsdale at Northwood
Hantz Stadium
Saturday, October 1, 2005
Game time: 12:00 Noon

Hi Charger Fans,
Tailgating will begin at 10:00 AM in the parking lot off Naegle Rd. behind the DeVos Building on Northwood's campus. Go to: Look for building #13, it is the parking lot directly behind that. You can get directions to Northwood's campus by using The address is 4000 Whiting Dr., Midland, MI 48640. It is too early for the 3 B's, burgers, brats and beer so let's do a breakfast tailgate! We did this last year at Northwood and it was a big success. Some suggestions are muffins, bagels, donuts, fresh fruit, cheese & crackers, juice, get the drift. Be creative, it will be fun. I won't be attending this week's game because of a family wedding (who gets married during football season, anyways???) but Larry will be there. No grilling this week, continental breakfast only! Ticket prices are $5.00/Adult, $3.00 Children, no charge for parking.

Apparel orders: I will have the rest of the clothing with me at Oct. 8th game. Watch your email next week for further details. It is not too late to order additional clothing. Email me and I'll send you an order form as a download attachment.

Don't forget to call for your reservations for the Mercyhurst game. These rooms will only be held until Tues., Oct. 4, 2005. The following is a repeat from a previous email:

New hotel information for the Mercyhurst (Oct. 29, 1:30 PM) game:
OK, sorry that I blew it with our accommodations at the Ramada Inn. I'd like to thank all the parents that were so gracious about it. I'll have to admit, the rooms were pretty bad. Please call the Ramada Inn @ 1-800-832-9101 to cancel your reservations ASAP. I've already
contacted the Ramada Inn with our complaints, so they are expecting our cancellations.

I have blocked 20 rooms for Friday, October 28 (night before the game) and 10 rooms for Saturday, October 29 (night of the game). Most parents told me they were staying the night before and leaving after the game, but others wanted to stay after.

One more thing, I received a call from Hillsdale today, it seems that someone received an eye injury from a tootsie roll that was thrown at last Saturday's game. I feel terrible that this happened so we won't be throwing tootsie rolls anymore. But I'll tell you what, I'll still bring them and all the little ones (and the big Dads, too) that look forward to tootsie rolls can come and get a handful whenever they want. I like to sit by the 50 yard line so come over and grab a handful. Have a safe trip.

Let's Go Chargers!!!
