Class VI OIC – Army Navy Tailgate

Greetings Class of 87 Army/Navy Tailgaters!  This is your Class VI OIC, Lisa Steptoe

It is TIME TO GET THE PARTY STARTED! My experience over the past couple of UP YOUR GAME Tailgates is we are a thirsty group. VERY THIRSTY.  With that in mind, we are planning for 100 Mimosas and 100 Bloody Mary’s.

In an effort to ensure we have all the supplies we need, I have set up a SIGNUP GENIUS for everyone to sign up to and volunteer. Everything we need is on the sign up sheet and you can sign up for more than one item, if you so choose.

Please go to

I look forward to ensuring we make it to the game at steady state to have a great time and BEAT NAVY!


Dare to Dream,
Lisa Steptoe
