At periodic intervals I will be posting info about opportunities for us readers and commenters to get together and meet each other face to face, have a drink or two, and wax poetic on detailed and serious Pitt Football issues.
Coming up in 2017’s Winter/Spring months so far we have two events:
First off – The Pitt recruiting class of 2017’s Pitt National Letter Of Intent Day (NLOI) that will held be at Heinz Field with free parking in the Gold Lot. (You can RSVP through the link above).
I will be hosting a cocktail hour before the official start of the event. Meet myself and other POV’ers at Jerome Bettis’ Grille 36 between 4:00 – 5:00 pm. Possibly earlier depending how long my drive from MD takes.
At 5 o’clock we’ll mosey over to the North club at Heinz Field to do the football coaching staff ‘meet and greet’ that Pitt puts on before the more formal 6:00 pm talks and PowerPoint shows by the position coaches talking about the kids from the 2o17 recruiting class they will have under their care. That lasts about an hour or so then… if we feel like it we can have another back at Bettis’ Grille.
Leave your wallets at home! This day’s on me as a small way to say thank you all for what you all have done in helping this blog get off the ground over the past six months. I truly mean that.
Secondly – and if my ciphering is correct – we’ll meet up again during, or around, Pitt’s Spring Game day to host a Pitt POV golf tournament.
Again – this is a preliminary golf outing date but will be a blast when it happens – there will be prizes for the golfers who partake in the day regardless if you suck at golf like I do. Because the official Spring Game day hasn’t been announced I think we will target the 3rd Saturday in April as that is the constant date that has been used in the past.
This year that would be on April 15th… but again that hasn’t been confirmed by Pitt yet so keep a ‘save the date‘ for that but be flexible please.
Of course and in addition I’ll be driving up to the Southside a few times over March and April to attend some spring practices and will let you guys know when I do that is so we can have lunch, drinks, etc…
Depending on how these events go we’ll plan more – already I’ve committed to Pitt POV Tailgates (thanks Big B again for the POV flag!!) at the home games and we’ll have other events, such as away game trips, as time rolls on.
