Because i was looking thru old FCD photos and saw a few from 24 hour tailgates.

It's never too early to start planning, even if we dont know the date (to my knowledge)

I totally agree with you however I think we should wait a little while like after the AGM and the new officers have a chance to talk to the powers that be within the FCD FO. Also should wait on some other legistice however I plan on this one being huge Maybe not 2005 huge but bigger and better than the past three.

As discussed in the newsletter, we're on for the 24-hour tailgate in our usual location. I believe members of Red Shamrock and FCDrunk will also be joining for the annual tailgate in front of Dr. Pink.

Now's the time to start getting this thing organized. Who's in?

I believe I can get a projector from work if we want a FIFA contest or something.

I am planning on being there with my RV. What can I do to help. I am not familiar with the location but I assume there is parking close by to set up the RV!

basschamp557, Dr Pink is the field next to the Adidas training field. It's the field with the turf that the schools use and has a private gated entrance off of the Gold parking lot.

This works out as a great tailgating spot and it's where we tailgated for a few years before being forced to move last year. There are bathrooms, running water, and electricity that we can plug into for the 24-hour tailgate.

There's also a grassy area so if anyone wants to bring a tent, you can pitch it and be able to spend the night at the tailgate. I'm an old lady so I usually stay until late and then go home to sleep in my bed before returning to the tailgate the next morning.

keylock25, I think we probably need to figure out what we're going to need for the tailgate. We should probably start thinking about that so we can make a list to get people to sign up for things. We also need to see what people want to do for entertainment. I can bring the projector from my office and we can hook up a PS3 or Wii to it for games. Is there anything specifically that we want to play?

Also, we'll need to see about what we want to do for drinky-drink. Do we want to get a keg? Can we see who wants to pitch in for one?

2 questions? 1, do we need to show some sort of ID to get in or is it just something we can walk up and join in on? The preseason game this Saturday will that cost any money to attend, I would love to meet some of you guys before I just show up March 10th.

1. For the 24-hour tailgate, just show up. You don't have to be an Inferno member to take part in the tailgate-athon.

2. The pre-season game will be free. Don't expect the Beer Garden to be open Wink

All the Inferno tailgates are open to the public as is the preseason scrimmage.

If you're interested in meeting some fellow Inferno members and are free on Wednesday, come to the Allen Wickers for the USMNT game against Panama. I'm pretty sure that Rex Kramer and I will be there and I'm sure there will be others as well.

Is it going to be in the stadium? Normally, the preseason games are held on one of the outdoor fields.

The projecter with the Wii or PS3 sounds like a great idea.

Maybe we can set up some soccer goals, cornhole, ladder ball, frisbee, and etc. I think for food we could keep it simple like hot dogs and hamburgers.

A keg sounds like a good idea. Choosing a beer, is going to be the hard part. I imagine if we all chip in a few bucks we can cut the cost of the beer and if everybody brings something we can make it work.

Nbc Sports network will be out there all weekend, let's show them how FCD does tailgating.

The friendly will be out on adidas field. My Beer Garden comment was meant to be a joke... Sleep

I would love to make it out on Wednesday but I'll be working, I think I might attend the game on Saturday, it sounds like a fun time I can't wait for March 11th, I've never been to an FC Dallas game before, last time I went to an MLS game the Burn played host to the Wizards at the Cotton Bowl and the players signed autographs after the game, I still have the ball somewhere that they gave out that day that I hand them sign. Anyway to those of you who will be there on Saturday depending on the weather I'll be the one wearing the Chelsea FC hoodie.

Well, I know that Rex and I will also be at the scrimmage on Saturday morning so we'll see you there. You'll recognize me because I look like my picture (minus the hat because someone stole it at a hockey game).

Warren, how long have you known me? Don't you know by now that I have no sense of humor?

Haha. OR, you could just add #snark to the end of your post and then I'd be "Oooooo, that's a joke and/or sarcastic."

Actually, it might be better if you just used #joke and #sarcasm instead.

Who is attending the WNT game on Feb 11th? (yeah I know there is probably another thread about this but I am a newbie on this forum and still figuring out how it all works!)

Also remember the RV has the satellite TV and the big screen which I can run all night if necessary. Two beds are available also for overnite folks to catch some ZZZZZ on!

Brenda, you mentioned the area as being fenced in. Can the RV be driven into this area? Is there a gate for vehicles?

Only the Dr. Pink field is fenced in. We tailgate in the grassy area of the parking lot (the Gold lot) in front and beside the Dr. Pink field so there's no problem with your RV. You will have PLENTY of room for your RV in the parking lot.

I will also be at the February 11th game. I think I'm in Section 118.

I am in the process of getting an official ok to park the RV right there in that front row of parking next to the gravel walkway. With that location there will be plenty of room for several canopies on the grass between the parking lot and the field fence. Sure wish we could get approval to setup there the entire season! That is an awesome location! Of course there is alot more room on the south edge of blue parking for kids to play and such!
