I know that I'm probably being paranoid here but I think that would be a bad idea to have scheduled meetings of an internet community. If word got out that we were doing this we could attract the wrong kind of people. And, god forbid, if something like that did happen, no matter how remote the possibility is, i dont think Jeremy would want to deal with the terrible publicity and the site would probably be closed. Now ask yourselves, Is it worth it?
I'm not doing this to be a party-pooper, and i would enjoy a CF Tailgate as much as the next guy but i dont think we should put ourselves in that position. Just one guys honest opinion.
Yeah, I'm confused just as others are why this could be a bad idea. I'm working (or will be soon) with Chris @ CN to plan one, why not this site too.
Better yet, get as many members from the three big message boards all together - have one big ISU message board junkie tailgate. Put faces with the handles and have some brews! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif[/img]
You guys are more than welcome to stop by. We will have plenty of beverages. I'll be done with class at 9:30, so should be in line by 10 or 10:30.
everyone is more than welcome to hit up the Team Wop tailgate. We named ourselves after our fav drink, wop, which is beer, lemonade concetrate, and vodka. It sounds disgusting, but its quite tasty, and it will "wop" you right onto your a$$. We tend to get pretty generous when we make large batches. We have a beer pong table, and co-ordinated t-shirts that proclaim "the rules of tailgating". Chances are we will all skip class on thursday and be in line about 6AM. If you see a guy in an Ennis Haywood jersey thats too small, thats probably me. Our vehicle will probably be a little 2wd Ford Ranger. If were out of food and drink, we're always up for shooting the **** with other fanatics, so if you notice us, stop on by. August 31st cant come soon enough. Go Clones!
