We are getting very close, less than a month now, to our opener against the Penguins of Youngstown State. So the smell of the grills and the whipping sound of flags flying remind us that our POV family will be tailgating at every home game during the 2017 season.
First I want to thank Fran Lokar (Lastrow), Bernie Blystaff (BigB), Ike Eicher (Ike) and Rich Tencza (Richman) for the hard work and great suggestions they have put into the tailgating brain trust.
Here is the basic info – Fran is graciously allowing us to share his tailgating spot in parking lot Red 5A. He’s had that spot for years and has opened his standing tailgate parties up to the POV’ers and our friends/families.
That lot is on situated on General Robinson Street between the Red 5 parking garage and the Renaissance Inn.
That is smack dab under the Light Rail Transit (LRT) North Side stop where you descend right into the Red 5A lot.
What you will look for is a 20′ flag pole flying both of these flags…
So there is no excuse saying you couldn’t find us.
We’ll have drinks, food and camaraderie to the nines then we’ll watch beat YSU (soundly let’s hope) and start partying again after the game.
I have ordered some nice POV apparel that I will be giving away on the honor system for donations. Sweatshirts, T-Shirts and am looking at Polo shirts also wityh the POV embroidered on the front.
Also- we’ll have some big ass car magnets for you to show your POV pride while driving to and from the games.
Here is the best I have seen yet from Richman…
…and he drives around it with his new best friend…
