Sat22Oct201610:00 am-NoonParking Lot A Brown Stadium
The Big Red is UNDEFEATED going into this weekend, following thrilling wins over Bucknell, Yale, and Colgate. For those of us who can't get enough of Big Red football, or who can't go to the Harvard game this weekend, we have another opportunity to see them play in New England -- on Saturday, October 22, at Brown.
My wife Gail and I have recently moved back to New England (Bristol, RI, to be precise) after several years in California. We're planning to tailgate at the Brown game, and we'd be delighted if you could join us! We'll be in Parking Lot A, adjacent to the Brown stadium, and we'll have adequate space for a good-sized group. We'll provide the basics, but please feel free to bring your beverages of choice and perhaps something for the table. More details will follow once we know who's coming. If you'd like to join us, please respond to me at the email address below.
