LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – It’s almost time for football fans to grab their stadium seats and head to campus for Eastern Oregon University’s first home game of the season Saturday, Sept. 8.
But before the Mountaineers face the Montana State University-Northern Lights, the celebration will have already started in a nearby parking lot.
Festivities in the John J. Howard & Associates Tailgate Zone will accompany every home football game this season, and Howard’s naming sponsorship continues through the next five years. Located in the 6th St. and H Ave. parking lot by the tennis courts, the tailgating area opens at 10:30 a.m. and closes at 1 p.m. in time for kick-off at Community Stadium.
Reserved spaces provide ample room for private vehicles and for staging barbecues or picnics. Advance reservations are being accepted now, or spaces may be requested the day of the game.
The cost to reserve a space for all five home games is $100; $60 for three games; or $25 per game, payable at the gate. Visit www.eou.edu/alumni/tailgate or call 541-962-3740.
