New year, new chance to do some Duhawkin'
Wed, Aug. 15, 2012 - [Loras]

The Loras College Department of Athletics is happy to announce a new policy to be implemented prior home football games this fall.


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


The full policy is available HERE.


"We're looking to bring together our fan base 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 kickoff. It is a chance for alums, families, and current students to get together and share in the game day atmosphere in one place."
