The First Annual FCG Consulting Alumni Tailgate took place on October 17, 2015 during Homecomings weekend, and was a tremendous success.
After spending the day picking up Canes Chicken, ice, champagne and way too much orange juice, we arrived on the East Range and set up shop.
At first the turnout felt slightly muted, but as the day went on alumni and present members turned out in droves. It was a great opportunity to talk about our current projects with each other and network with alumni.
The weather was classic Charlottesville, switching from sweltering hot to bone cold at the drop of a hat. As such, people turned out in a mismash of sun dresses and heavy coats.
After the game was over, we all headed out to Scott Stadium to watch the Cavaliers battle the Orange. And what a game it was. The Hoos pulled out the win in triple overtime. It was the perfect end to a spectacular day.
We were glad to see everyone out for the 1st Tailgate and look forward to seeing you all next year for the 2nd Annual Alumni Tailgate!
