2018 Tailgates: At Pittsburgh BWW planning info
Tailgating Newsletter Volume XV Issue X
Blue White Weekend (BWW) 1804-21-2018
Official quote:The first tailgate weekend of the season started with more RVs than normal. This was the first year that overnight RV parking for BWW also required a parking pass or cost more than prior years.
We had a 4 RV convoy for the first time since 2013 homecoming . We got to State college and met at the old Eat N Park by the North Atherton WalMart at 7:45 PM. It was Rob and Alaina, Larry and Tina, Matt and Kori, Rich and Nell.
From there, we caravanned to RV lot. The lot attendants were very friendly and helped us through the new process. Dispite my best efforts, I didn't have the correct pass with me and the lot attendants asked me multiple times until I finally gave the correct answer of “Yes, we left the pass at home."
We parked all together in a "H" on RV west 6th. Once we got set up, the group made an italian dinner and ate in Rich and Nell’s camper.
We had drinks and finished a bottle of Fireball less than an hour.
Rich and Matt join the car convoy in the morning. Once setup was complete, they came back to the RV and we all made our way over to the tailgate.
The group got parked in spot 1552...in the second row away from the pressbox. The 10x20 canopy went up with some work.
Breakfast was bacon and eggs with Guava mimosas. Maddy made the “big drink” for the day which was a pan galactic gargle blaster for our “hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy theme.”
Jeremy and Jason both stopped by. We sang Happy Birthday to Jason.
The day started cool, but warmed up quickly and many ended up with sunburns from the cloudless sky. Hard to believe that the week started with 2 days of snow! What a weird winter that it’s been.
Chalupa hung out with Cari and Paul most of the day. Shawn and Shari brought their girls and their new puppy, Dakota. Chalupa, as usual, doesn’t like puppies.
For food throughout the day, the group sampled:
The young boys were set up with a large variety of monster trucks at the lower end of the tailgate. Rich, Matt and Shawn keep residence on the tailgate.
There were many activities going on during the day. A group of us walked over to see Velveeta playing on the stage near the all-sports museum.
While we were there, we also spotted Keegan Michael Key who was taking photos with the Nittany Lion. Alaina and I waited in line to get our picture. I was trying to think of something cleaver to say to when we finally met. “you done messed up A-A-Ron” was the best that I could think of. He told that, "It was so exciting to be back."
We played pigs at the end of the night, before the tailgate broke up and I walked back to the RV lot
The RVers played cards in the RV lot and went to bed.
SundayIt was another beautiful day.
We visited Shawn and Shari's new place, stopped at walmart for some flair and then stopped at Suz’s to see the basement remodel.
