Four years ago, Sharon Schiller Fusco, Allison Miller, and Lew Keathley were looking to do another event for Marching Mizzou alumni who might not be able to attend Homecoming in the fall. The first year, they started out with just grilling hot dogs near Mizzou Arena. The following year, working in tandem with former director, Dr. Brad Snow, it was decided to incorporate that tailgate with Marching Mizzou. Marching Mizzou holds their drum major tryouts before and during the spring football game.
The Marching Mizzou Alumni Band would like to extend an invitation to all former members to attend the Black & Gold game tailgate. It will be held this year on Saturday, April 15, at 10:00 a.m. The tailgate will again be held at the current (new) Marching Mizzou practice field. M2AB will provide a lunch of sandwiches, chips, cookies, and bottled water. Lunch will be served at 11:00 a.m.
This is a free event. Even parking, yes, parking is free!! Guests can park their car right at the practice field. Everyone is encouraged to bring a lawn chair and join us. The whole family is welcome.
