    For all those coming to the Air Force vs Army game this Saturday at Falcon Stadium, you are Cordially invited to "THUDGATE". Thudgate is the largest private tailgate west of the Mississippi. It is military retirees, active duty, cadets, parents, and all other supporters. We also invite the opposing team. Yes my Army Brothers, I am inviting you. It's huge. On the football field, we might be enemies; but on the battle field and in the service, we are brothers and sisters.

    If you're interested in coming, you are definitely invited. Bring anything you want, if it's convenient, but at least bring yourself. We have all the food and drink you could want. Including an open bar. And about an hour before kickoff, as we wind down the tailgate, we make a toast with some good old fashioned "Jeremiah Weed". We toast those who are serving, who have served, and those no longer with us.

    Thudgate was named after one of the founders of Thudgate. "Another Mike". His father was an F105 pilot (The F-105 was nicknamed the THUD). His father was on active duty when he lost his life in a plane. He was also INSTRUMENTAL in the Development of the Commanders in Chief's Trophy. Please come on out and lets have some fun. All are invited. If you find the really big WHITE TENT outside the stadium on the EAST SIDE.... "THAT'S NOT US" LOL!!! But we are right behind it. You'll know, because there will be a very large RV and a lot of people there. We're right where the dirt parking lot meets the asphalt handcapped parking. Can't miss it. See you there. Mike....
