Statewide Secular Tailgate

Are other tailgates religious? Probably not, but join your secular friends at a tailgate for the Iowa State v Iowa game this Saturday. RSVP at the Facebook event, and invite your friends! Bring some canned goods to show team spirit and help those in need (see after the map for details). IAF will have a grill set up, but you need to bring your own food and beverages.

Due to the nature of tailgating, we don’t have an exact location. So, you’ll just have to head to the red-shaded area on the map below and look for the AAS and IAF banners. I’ll have my blue Toyota Matrix there, and we’ll set up a big white tent. There will be no parking in the tailgate area so you’ll have to park in the Orange lot (just north of the stadium, north of 4th street) and walk or take the shuttle over.

    For those attending the Statewide Secular ISU/UI tailgate, stay posted for details. We will be in a different lot/lawn than we thought. It’s crazy out here!

    location of the tailgate: from University Blvd turn towards Vet Med on 16th, then 1st right, then 1st left

    We’re set up about 100 yrds in from the road, in the 2nd row of cars from the south.
