    I want to be sure and invite all of our friends here at BoltTalk to our Home Opener Tailgate party on Monday September 9th. What we want to know is a couple of things. If you are planning on attending our shindig at parking lot area M-4, please let us know how many in your group are showing up. We are taking ideas for the food, whether you would like for Ivan (Eat My Boltage) the grillmaster to bring either some "Carne of the gods" or tri-tip or if you have any other ideas such as the taco cart, pot luck, etc. All attendees are asked to contribute to the food fund so that we can continue the tradition of a great little tailgate area where several Chargers websites meet and greet before the game. There is always some kind of entertainment, and if you know of a DJ, or have a bean bag game or beer pong table, you are most welcome.
    We will also have our list and our private porta potty unit available, and donations or contributions for our bathroom fund are certainly appreciated. I can give you more details on this if you PM me for information. A lot of our members pay 20 bucks for a spot on the "Honor Roll" for the bathroom fund. Single game contributions are also welcomed.
    If you have any questions, ideas, or suggestions, please feel free to post them here. Oh, and don't forget to bring your favorite beverage...
    On a slightly different note, there will be a special moment to remember and honor some of our friends like Dennis (boltfanatik) and if you know of any other Charger fans that have passed it will be a moment for them too.
    Go Bolts!

    Mom and I will be there :) Hopefully just after the lot opens for non permit holders.

    Carne of the Gods always gets my vote! Happy to contribute to the food and the funds - maybe some chips and dips and veggies? Just let me know what you guys need when we get a little closer :)

    I just got approval to move my time off up a couple of weeks and may attend this game. If so, I'll try my best to drop in . it would be great to meet some of my fellow bolttalkers in person. If the wife and I make it, we'll bring some snacks to share for sure.

    Will be there in spirit!
    Still remember the MNF tailgate in October last year like it was yesterday! Highlight of the trip!
    Will have to try and get back there maybe next season for a football trip since I'm doing a hockey trip in January.

    Enjoy, my friends, and have a few goodies for me, too. I'll be there in spirit, even though my physical being is in Oregon along with the rest of my life. LOL

    Okay, we have a week and a half to get ready for this thing in earnest. What we need to know is, who is coming, how many people are you bringing with you, and are you bringing a food item to our little get-together? This information is very important to us as it helps us plan what we need to buy in terms of the entree items. Thanks for all of your help.

    Other things possibly needed, keep in mind that we are playing a team from Texas:

    Water or sodas
    Salad

    If you can bring one of these items, please put your name on the list and the food item. This way we don't get 3 or 4 people bringing the same thing.

    Thanks Mike! Who else is in? Any newbies showing up? Come on, stand up and be counted. Actually, we need to know if anyone of our veteran members are showing up too. We have already had a Turtle sighting...

    Hello all, I am a little late getting on the site as usual but I will be there for the opener and prob all home games this season, I ended up buying my season ticket back, just in a different section. I will be staying overnight so I will be taking the trolley in. I can bring a potato salad if that is still needed, it should fit in the cooler. Let me know if there is anything else. I will see you all on Monday. Go Bolts
