Homecoming to feature Tailgate ‘08
By : Lauren Smith
This year’s Homecoming weekend will include what should be the largest outdoor barbecue in University history. Tailgate ’08 will take place from 4 to 7 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 18, in Parking Lot F, outside the Events Center.
The Office of Alumni and Parent Relations and Alumni Association encourage faculty, staff, students and members of the community to bring their own grills for this first-ever Homecoming tailgate. Food, beer and wine also will be available for purchase from Sodexo.
Tailgate ’08 will lead into the men’s soccer game against the University of Vermont Catamounts. Fans will get a free “rally rag” and are encouraged to “white out” the Bearcats Sports Complex. Time Warner Sports will televise the game throughout central New York. A fireworks display will follow the game.
Alumni can reserve spaces for Tailgate ’08 and purchase discounted soccer game tickets through http://homecoming.binghamton.edu, or by calling the Alumni Office at 777-2431. Staff, students and community members must call the Alumni Office to reserve a spot. Attendees are encouraged to view the tailgate regulations at the Homecoming website.
Tailgate ’08 is sponsored by Liberty Mutual – provider of the Alumni Association’s Group Savings Program; the Press & Sun-Bulletin; Fox 40; NewsChannel 34; University Plaza Apartments; Clintwood Healthy U; University Bookstore; Sodexo; TeamWorld; and Late Nite Binghamton.
