Come Tailgate With Us on Saturday

DSC_5452_med_grilled_stickiesGoing to the Michigan game this weekend? The Alumni Association staff is hosting a big indoor tailgate  before the game.

We do it every Homecoming weekend—we call it the Alumni Zone, and we invite all interested alumni. I’ll be there, and so will a lot of other Alumni Association staff, as well as several hundred Penn State alumni and their families who have already RSVPed to say they plan to attend.

I went to the A-Zone last year for the first time, and had a blast. There’s lots of food, lots of stuff for the kids to do, and lots of music—including the Alumni Blue Band. The Lion mascot is there, roaming around, happily posing for photos. There are celebrity guests too; this year they include former Penn State quarterback Michael Robinson ’04, ’06, Homecoming grand marshal John Amaechi ’94, former Lady Lion basketball standout Kelly Mazzante ’04, and coaches Patrick Chambers, Guy Gadowsky, Charlene Morett ’79, Mark Pavlik ’82, and Russ Rose.

The event runs from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Multi Sport Facility, below the stadium. Alumni Association members pay a discounted admission charge, but all alumni and friends are welcome. Hope to see you on Saturday.
