Tips for Tailgating: Enjoying Football Season the Right Way

Tips for Tailgating
Tips for Tailgating

Football season has started, which means more and more drivers will be tailgating before the games begin. There’s nothing more enjoyable than firing up the grill, having some drinks, playing games, and hanging out with other diehard sports fans. That’s why we’ve put together these tips for tailgating that’ll help you make this year’s tailgating season more enjoyable than ever.

First, according to ABC, one of the most important things to do is mark your territory. In other words, get to the stadium early to find a great parking spot and be sure to mark your perimeter. You can attach balloons to your mirrors or lay down rugs to show others where you’re going to be located.

If you have the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, you’ll have plenty of space for supplies. Nevertheless, you may have trouble keeping hot food warm without wasting your battery on an accessory. You can get past this issue by turning an ordinary cooler into a food warmer. Simply wrap four bricks in foil and put them in an oven heated to 450 degrees. After lining the bottom of a cooler with towels and putting on oven mitts, you can put the heated bricks in the cooler for an impromptu oven.

Finally, bring supplies to celebrate your dedication to your team. Bring extra shirts or jerseys for friends who leave theirs at home, and be sure to bring some games. Corn hole or ladder ball are popular, and a football is a must for any tailgating adventure.

Family Reunion at the Army/Navy Game Receives Bonus from Chevrolet

During the Army/Navy football game every year, Chevrolet and Wish for Our Heroes come together to hold a military family reunion during half time. This year, as the family of US Army Sgt. Jonathon Preston Thompson reunited, they received a bit of surprise—a brand-new 2015 Chevrolet Colorado.

“As we’ve seen with the Thompsons and millions of others, military families make huge sacrifices for our country, and it feels good to celebrate Sgt. Thompson’s homecoming with a brand-new truck,” said Dan Akerson, former General Motors Chairman and CEO and a graduate of the US Naval Academy.

We at Stalker Chevrolet were thrilled to see the Colorado join the family reunion at the Army/Navy game.

Sergeant Thompson served our country in two deployments. The family recently lost their house at Fort Riley in Kansas to a fire, which they are still recovering from. Hopefully, the Chevrolet Colorado will help them do just that. The Colorado was recently named Motor Trend magazine’s 2015 Truck of the Year, showing that its capabilities and perfect size will make sure the Thompsons have a dependable vehicle.

Reuniting Families at Army/Navy Game
The Army/Navy game is not only a time for heroes to collide on the football field, but to also welcome home heroes from the battlefield.

Fall Means Football, School, and Hot Air Balloon Days

Fall is for football. Simple enough, but lots of other events take place in autumn.

For just about every school-aged child in Iowa, fall means friends and foes. Friends that they may not have seen for three months as they enjoyed their summer vacation away from their foes, teachers (we kid, we love teachers).

Hawkeye football fans were on the edge of their seats a bit more than we would have appreciated in a week one opener against UNI. But a win is a win, and now it’s on to Ball State.

NFL and fantasy football fans everywhere are rejoicing, as the NFL kicks off with matchup between to NFC championship contenders; Green Bay at Seattle.  The last time the two faced off at CenturyLink Field we were treated to 12-14 game that ended in controversy. Thankfully that controversy lead to the return of the regular officials.+

In Creston, fall bring Hot Air Balloon Days. Three days of entertainment, food, community involvement, and balloon races.
Whatever fall means for you, we hope you enjoy it. A season where the heat of summer cools and crisp air fills the night sky.

Fall Means Football

As the days start to get a little shorter and the weather begins to cool off (a little bit anyway) our thoughts turn to fall. And when our thoughts turn to fall, we begin to think about football season.  The Panthers are already 1-0 after an impressive win at Chariton and both the Hawkeyes and Cyclones fell in college football’s opening weekend.

While we certainly hope Creston/OM can continue to play well, now you have a choice to make between Iowa and Iowa State.

With football season brings rivalry and health competition, so we’ve decided to get in on the spirit during the WHO TV-RV TV tailgate Monday September 9th at the Creston Depot. During the event we will be collecting non-perishable food items for the Creston Food Pantry in “Victory Trucks”. Our truck will be collecting for the Iowa Hawkeyes, the truck from M&M Motors will be collecting for the Iowa State Cyclones, and Creston Automotive will be collecting for those who wish to remain neutral, but still want to have a good time. The final weigh-in will be around 10 P.M. to decide the winner.

Iowa vs. Iowa State

The tailgating fun starts at 4 P.M. with music, food, games, and WHO TV getting some fan insight from the folks of Creston. Live telecast will be shown at 5, 6 and 10 P.M.

Make sure you wear all you Hawkeyes or Cyclone gear for the Best Dressed/Most Supportive Hawk & Cyclone Supporter contest that will be shown during the live telecast at 5 P.M. Signups will be at the Depot and you must register before 5.

Hawkeyes, Cyclones. Football season is here everyone! We hope to see you out at the Depot on Monday!
