Charger Parents :: Wayne State Tailgating Info

Hillsdale vs. Wayne State (home)
Saturday, November 5, 2005
Game time: 2:30 PM
Senior Day

Dear Charger Families,

Tailgating will begin around noon in the grass parking lot west of the athletic complex. Please bring your main dish, beverages, eating utensils and a small dish to pass. The tailgate tent, with tables, will be set up in the lot for the food. It would be great if we could have some extra grills going since there will be a big crowd for the last game of the season. I've asked Carly Crowley to come out to take a group picture of all the tailgaters! Please come over to the small hill under the trees by the far end of the parking lot at 1:00 PM. Everyone that is tailgating is welcome in the shot. Let's show that Charger spirit for the last time this season!

Senior parents: You need to report to the outside locker room doors (next to the home stands) at 2:00 to get situated for the pre-game festivities. Please don't be late.

Charger family bonfire: Immediately following the game head out to the Rumsey's for a bite to eat and bonfire. Download map/directions if you need them. Invitation was sent out on Monday by email. Contact me if you didn't read it or have any questions.

Banquet: 2005 Charger Football and Awards Banquet starts at 1:00 PM in the Jesse Phillips Sports Arena. Senior parents need to be there by 12:15 PM for pictures.

Salvation Army Canned Food Drive: Bring 2 canned goods to the game and receive a discount coupon for game tickets. $3.00/Adult $1.00 Student/Senior/Child Ticket

Apparel Orders: Please see me at the tailgate, I have a few orders that still need to be picked up. For those of you who just ordered last week, I may not get these in by game time. I will contact you and then mail them to your home when I receive them.

I would like to give a great big thank you to my friend Vonnie Sandner (the original tootsie roll lady) and her husband Mike. They were instrumental in turning Charger tailgating into the fun event that it is today! When we first came here four years ago there were 5 families eating sandwiches out of the back of their cars and getting to know each other in that grass parking lot. Now today, our little school rivals any of the bigger schools with spirit and fun. There are just bigger and better things on the horizon for us and for our Chargers! Vonnie & Mike will not be able to attend tomorrow's game as their HS quarterback son's (Tyler), Grand Rapid Catholic Central Cougars are in the playoffs. They play at 1:00 Saturday. But Vonnie & Mike will be at the bonfire and the banquet. They are true Charger Fans!

Finally, thank you to all of our departing senior parents. We have made so many great friends here in Hillsdale. You have made these past four years unforgettable and very special and I will miss you all very much. This is the last dance for your son as a Charger but I know that you will always be a true blue Charger fan in your heart. You will all be in mine. Good luck to your wonderful sons and to your beautiful families.

Now, are we ready for some football! YES!!! As fans, let's make the last game for our seniors LOUD, ROWDY and a GREAT MEMORY for them all!
