I know this is posted in another thread, but needed to have this posted on top:
All SA members are invited to the Draft Day Tailgate. Same as most tailgates, BYOB. I will also be deep frying another turkey in the lot. It seems like it has became a tradition. Bring some burgers to fry on the grill if ya want. Call me for any other info you need. We will be parking in Gold Lot 1. Any more questions post them here, or call me at: 724-651-9626. Tailgate starts at 9am. Everybody needs to take down my cell number. Cause Lot #2 is opening at 9am. I prefer to get in to lot #1 though.
