Who's going to the game? If it's your first time at a Clemson home football game, check out this nifty, online guide, "The Tiger Fan's Guide to Clemson Football Game Days", created by IPTAY and the Clemson Athletic Department. It has useful tips even for experienced Clemson fans. Also make sure you read up on some new Death Valley policies for game days. No backpacks folks.
If you make it into Clemson early on Friday, make sure you check out the First Friday Parade - starts at 6pm. The theme this year is, "History WILL Repeat Itself".
Looks like the weather will be nice for the weekend, but hot (as it usually is the first game). I guess we should be glad it's not a Noon game, but 3:30 PM games can be just as hot. I need to remember to get batteries for my gameday lap fan (best purchase ever!). :) And pack sunscreen!
Besides tailgating on Clemson gamedays, we also love seeing everyone's gameday fashion! We try to capture as many photos of you in your gameday best as we can, so don't be surprised if someone approaches you and wants to take your picture for ClemsonGirl.com. :)
Speaking of photos - we always try to take as many photos around Clemson on gameday as we can, but it's hard to get everywhere, so we're looking for volunteers again this year to help capture Clemson's gamedays. All we ask is that you take at least 75 unique photos throughout the day (tailgating fun, gameday outfits, inside the stadium, etc.) and then email them to us on Sunday by midnight EST. All volunteer photographers get a $25 gift certificate to a sponsor of their choice (businesses on the right side of this blog -->). If you're interested, send us an email (email@example.com)!
Don't forget to wear orange on Friday for Solid Orange Fridays! Why not wear your Clemson Girl t-shirt? I'm sure it's totally work appropriate, right? :)
And on a completely unrelated note - we must take care of some unfinished business from last week. We never heard from the winner of The Sassy Palmetto giveaway, so we drew a new winner. Congrats to Lauren B. from Summerville, SC! Lauren, please email us to claim your tiger paw sculpture prize (firstname.lastname@example.org). You have until Thursday at Noon EST!
See everyone at the game this weekend! Who's ready for another great season!?! Go Tigers!!
