Tailgating 101
Tue, Sep. 17, 2013 - [Loras]

The Loras College Department of Athletics will once again offer fans a chance to tailgate ahead of home events in 2013-14.


Tailgating will be allowed in the Athletics and Wellness Center parking lot three hours prior to kickoff of home football games and in the Hennessy lot prior to home soccer matches. The space will be available only until kickoff. Guests may bring propane grills and alcohol consumption is permitted by those of legal drinking age.

"We're always trying to bring our fan base together in a fun and family-friendly environment," Director of Athletics Bob Quinn said on Wednesday. "We want all of our fans to socialize together and to do so in a respectful way. We fully expect a safe, clean, and exciting setting with our Duhawk supporters leading up to kickoffs. It is a chance for alums, families, and current students to get together and share in the game day atmosphere in one place."
