I hope this email finds all of you doing well and hopefully excited about a Navy team that is 2-0 as they face the Cincinnati Bearcats this Saturday at 3:30 pm at NMCS. As we did last home game against Tulane, we are rolling out the USNA ’85 tailgate machine. For this weekend, Charlie Smith has asked me to put this out to everyone:

Navy is off to a great start this season with wins over Florida Atlantic and Tulane.  The new tent was a hit and this week we will break out the new grill.  It should be a beautiful day for football on Saturday – come out early and enjoy the day.  The theme this week is Chili & Brats.  I’ve already heard from a couple of people who want to show the Cincinnati fans what real Chili tastes like and who doesn’t like a good brat to go with their pre-game beer.  We’re going to try out an online sign up this week but feel free to bring your favorite tailgate dishes. Beverages will include beer on tap, wine, sodas and water.
Here’s the link for the tailgate signup:
Here’s an outline for the remainder of the tailgating season: Fried Chicken (including wings) for AF, Homecoming against UCF will be catered and BBQ/Grilled food for the SMU game.
Please help us out and go to the link Charlie has provided and sign up to bring some food to share. This gives us a head count and makes sure we have enough and variety of food. As always, we will have beer on tap from the Chesapeake Brewing Company, red and white wine that we have purchased and people have donated. We will have the class donation box out and your donations that go to cover the overall cost of our tailgate equipment, the draft beer and other supplies purchased to offer you the best tailgate experience each game. Please remember to bring your folding tailgate chairs as well. I am also adding a portable restroom that will be at all ’85 tailgates for use by our classmates and guests and add some sanity to the lack of bathrooms at NMCS parking lot. So, Go Navy and PLEASE sign up today if you are attending and can bring something on Charlie’s list. I will be back for the Air Force and Homecoming games and look forward to seeing everyone then. Thanks as always to Charlie and Kathleen for being our tailgate hosts. Please email Charlie if you can help either set up or clean up this week, any and all help is appreciated! Tailgate set up starts at 11:30 and we usually tear down about an hour after Navy Blue and Gold. Beat the Bearcats and go to 3-0!
