Help us improve the tailgates next year....
I figured I'd start this thread now while the season is in full swing and everyone is still around. We're always trying to improve the tailgate and there are always challenges to overcome.
We've done something like 25 of these (with the bus) by now and we seem to have a pretty good formula that works but one of the biggest issues I think we have left is identifying everyone that comes to a tailgate. We've tried name tags but that just doesn't work. Not everyone makes one and wears it. I try my best to introduce people but we are often busy running around making sure the bus is operating ok, the grills are running hard, beer is iced down etc.
I can't tell you how many times omaners have missed one another at a tailgate. This is terrible! We spend all year on here and I know some of you only have the chance to get to one game a year and it would be so much easier if everyone could identify one another easier.
We've kicked the shirt and hat idea around here alot but the thing with that is you have different weather conditions and not everyone wants to wear the same hat.
I was thinking if we could find a company that could make Metal Pins with our online handles on them then people could put it on their hat or jersey? Something like this. http://www.qualitylapelpins.com/
What other ideas do you have for next year that would help? I know parking near the bus has been a concern from various Omaners and I'm constantly talking to the Broncos about more first come first serve parking. I have a plan in place to help with this next year.
Please any and all feedback would be appreciated.
