Stampede tailgate offers students great deals, great fun

Oct. 8, 2002

KALAMAZOO -- Bronco Stampede, a new student tailgate that also is open to the general public, begins at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12, and ends just before the 3:30 p.m. kick off for Bronco football versus Central Florida.

Bronco Stampede tailgates take place outside the Student Recreation Center prior to each home football game in 2002 and feature food, music and entertainment. The location for the Oct. 12 Stampede has been moved to the plaza at the West Michigan Avenue entrance to the center.

Admission is free, but meal tickets are $5 per person. Students on the WMU meal plan eat for free. For the homecoming football contest, students can reserve a tent, which includes 10 meal tickets, for only $30. Call 387-3759 to reserve a tent. Stampede grill menu options include hamburgers, hot dogs, garden burgers, chips, veggies, cookies and a choice of beverages.

Music will be provided by a D.J. from Sound Trax, the WXSP Extreme Team will be on hand and those attending will receive free Krispy Kreme Doughnuts just for stopping by.

Alcoholic beverages are prohibited in the Bronco Stampede tailgate area.
