Tailgating before Niner Men’s basketball games is now more convenient ---- in Lot 7 Upper Bay, next to Belk Gym. It’s a perfect spot to char some meat and gather with friends. Available 2-1/2 hours before tip-off.
As a student of the University of Charlotte, I would to simply ask why the office of student activities would be encouraging people to not attend a women’s basketball game? The Lady Niners are a very excellent team and deserve as much recognition (if not more, considering their success this season) as any other team on campus. It is a complete and total shame that an organization that is supposed to support student life, activities, and athletics would hold an event in conflict with a basketball game.
The Lady Niners have enough trouble pulling support from the student body as is, they do not need organizations of the school pulling even more potential fans away. Especially considering the 31st is a doubleheader and meant to draw a large crowd for BOTH teams. I do love the tailgating and always have fun and try to attend each one.
I am sorry if this e-mail has come across as insulting or angry. However, I hope you understand my concern.
