Stampede will charge up football fans

Aug. 26, 2002

KALAMAZOO -- A new student tailgate that also is open to the general public will be harnessing WMU spirit before 2002 home football games.

Called Bronco Stampede, the tailgate will take place in the plaza between the Student Recreation Center and Read Fieldhouse and feature food, music and entertainment. The alcohol-free event will premier from 5 to 7:15 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 29, before the 7:30 p.m. CommUniverCity Night game against Indiana State.

Those attending Bronco Stampede can corral hot food from the grill as well as kick up their heels playing novelty games that have a football twist. The games will allow tailgaters to kick field goals in the Equalizer challenge, test their throwing arms in Quarter Back Challenge, and check their quickness in the Bungee Run.

Admission is free, but food costs $5 (except for Bronco Days participants). For more information, contact Amy Seth in University Recreation at (269) 387-3759 or <amy.seth@wmich.edu>.
