The Oklahoma State Athletic Department is seeking input from its fans on the naming of a new tailgate area north of Boone Pickens Stadium.
As part of the future Athletic Village site, this spacious green area features plenty of grass space as well as prominent shade trees for fans to enjoy during pregame festivities. The tailgate site is located just north of the Cowgirl Softball Stadium off McElroy Road, between Bellis and West Street (see map).
While the tailgate space will be available to all fans, limited parking is available in the area for qualifying POSSE members ($1000+ donors to Athletics) with an applicable game day parking permit.
The area will be available beginning with the 2011 Cowboy football season until further construction projects take effect. Fans must follow all tailgating guidelines, which can be viewed under ‘tailgating” on the “Boone Pickens Stadium A-Z Guide” on www.okstate.com.
Fans are encouraged to submit ideas for the name of the area to POSSE by email (POSSE@okstate.edu) or mail (102 Athletic Center, Stillwater, OK 74078) no later than Aug. 19, with the winning entry to be announced by Aug. 26.
The winner of the contest will receive four club level tickets to the 2011 home opener against Louisiana.
All submissions must include the entrant’s name, email address and phone number to qualify. The winner will be contacted by Athletics once a decision has been made.
The name will become the official name of the area and be placed on game day parking maps, online maps, signage and other promotional materials.
