I hate to break it to you, but if your pregame party requires an invitation or a ticket or a wrist band or a donation or anything else for entry, then you are not actually tailgating. You're just throwing a private pregame party.
Tailgating is a neighborhood without fences.
Thanks bpe3, it's been fun to build!
While I understand your point and agree wholeheartedly, Kimmy is right. This tailgate is brand new, hasn't even poured it first beverage yet and there's a lot of money that people of shelled out to get it started. As stated, our goal is to soon be a completely free tailgate, but the banks don't run fence-less, they want their money back, lol.
Now sure, if you want to stop by, have a beer, check out the scores and chat for a bit, by all means, PLEASE come say hi, stay and make friends, there's no charge for anything like that. However, if you want to join and be a member and become part of the team, well, then yes, there are fees to keep it running. There's just no way around that part. All the food, beverage, satellite for The Sunday Ticket, etc. has to be paid for and most of us are teachers with small children of our own.
In the end, this is all for the Texans and their fans, a way for everyone to come together because everyone is welcome....We are losing money, not making money. We are just trying to recoup enough to keep the party going. Hopefully soon, no one will have to dip into their own pocket.
If you're ever out in Yellow we'd love for you to stop by, have a beer, hang out a bit.....No fences, but we are a community with shaded windows on our tents to block out the sun
