Sorry this is late, but I wanted to thank everyone for coming to this. Despite the outcome of the game, I had a great time. Hopefully everyone else did as well. We had 50 this year on relatively short notice.
The winds were so bad. We got there and were in the lot by 8:02am (lot opens at 8). Parked in our normal spot and the RV was rocking. Not the don't come a knocking type of rocking lol. More like the winds are insane right now kind. We had it all planned out, setting up the TV for the game in Europe, music, several tables and snacks were set up before anyone else got there.
Then the wind didn't let up. We knew we couldn't put out the awning on the RV or any of the pop up canopies \ tents. What we weren't counting on was that anything under 10lbs would blow away. People in the lot came up to us and said they weren't even going to try and tailgate. After a little while it was obvious that our current setup would not work. So we moved everything in front of the RV so we had a little break from the wind. Not much but it helped, the grills finally stayed lit. We had full trays of food on the sternos lift up and blow away.
I really want to thank everyone for showing up. It was great meeting you all. Sorry I didn't have more time to talk and hang out. Well, more like you are welcome you got a break from me. We were able to have a mod meeting with Dan and Crusher in the house. Baby Crusher should be playing for the Jets. Such a nice kid but I wouldn't get in his way on the football field!
If anyone has photos they want to add to the gallery you can email them to me or just post them in this thread and I will upload them. Here is the photo gallery and enjoy the picture of Crusher and I holding a cake. There is a more private cake photo available for premium members.
I would like to do this again next year, and plan it well in advance. Let's get 150+ there. That would be pretty cool. Maybe the second home game of the year, in September. We have time to plan all that out.
I don't have everyone's usernames. I have real life names for some people and I don't want to post them here. And I don't know where everyone else was for the group picture. I know I am leaving some people out, sorry! But thank you to:
