The fightin’ Texas Aggies, the Aggie yell leaders and The Association of Former Students are all headed east to BTHO Ole Miss.
There are events with local A&M Clubs on the way there and during the festivities, as part of the Coast to Coast A&M Clubs tour. Read on for how to get to these events, or to watch the game with fellow Aggies!
For every out-of-town Aggie football game, the The Association of Former Students and local A&M Clubs partner to arrange and host away-game Midnight Yell Practices and All-Aggie Tailgates.
On Friday, Nov. 17, we're taking over Silky O'Sullivan's at 183 Beale St. in Memphis.
Midnight Yell Practice
Midnight Yell will be Friday night at Handy Park in Memphis with the Mid-South A&M Club. If you can't join us, catch the live stream at facebook.com/AggieNetwork (Midnight in Memphis is also midnight in Aggieland.)
On Saturday, the free All-Aggie Tailgate will be 3-6 p.m. at a spot just north of the Ole Miss baseball stadium in Oxford, Miss., with the Mid-South A&M Club and Aggieland Outfitters (map at left, and here is a Google map link: tx.ag/Nov182017tailgate). We'll have free food and drinks thanks to sponsors, plus beer and swag from Aggieland Outfitters! Look for The Association's Gig 'Em Rig and the Aggieland Outfitters RV.
From Pasadena to Gainesville, across the U.S.!
Association staffers always visit as many Clubs as we can in person each year, and this fall, the A&M football schedule is really helping us out with that goal. We'll be logging 18,347 miles and meeting the Aggies of 50 A&M Clubs on the Coast to Coast tour, spanning from California to Florida. To follow along as the maroon pickup and the Gig ‘Em Rig cross the country, visit tx.ag/ClubsCoasttoCoast.
On our way to Mississippi, we'll be stopping for events in Linden, Texas: Texarkana; and Hope, Ark.; RSVP for any event, start at tx.ag/ClubsCoasttoCoast and click the link for the specific event).
The Coast to Coast tour has recently visited dozens of other clubs across the country. See photos and updates from those visits at tx.ag/CoasttoCoastPosts.
