Tailgate Party Moved to Thursday, Oct. 29: Lab Staff & Users Invited, Volunteers Still Needed

The Jefferson Lab Activities Group Tailgate Party has been moved to Thursday, Oct. 29, due to inclement weather predicted for Tuesday and Wednesday. All volunteer registrations have been moved to Thursday. Volunteers who aren’t available on Thursday, are ask to un-register.

Jefferson Lab employees and users are invited to the JAG Tailgate scheduled for Thursday, from 3-6 p.m. Due to wet weather in the forecast, a significant portion of the event will be held on the Residence Facility parking lot.

The Tailgate will feature Brunswick stew, chili, nachos, pulled pork BBQ, and beverages. Wear your favorite team's colors (whatever the sport) and sturdy shoes, and dress for potentially cool evening temperatures. There is still time to sign up your team for the cornhole tournament, or bring your shinguards for the pick-up soccer game.

In order to make this event a success, the JAG committee needs volunteers. More than a dozen one-hour volunteer shifts are open in the areas of food service, food runner, food clean up, nacho/popcorn server, trash maintenance and tear down.

If you are coming out for the event, please volunteer just one hour and help make this event a big success! Sign up today at: https://mis.jlab.org/ul/apps/volunteer/form.cfm?id=84

Parking: Park your vehicle in the CEBAF Center parking lot and cross Hadron Drive at the crosswalk. Parking won’t be permitted in the Residence Facility lot nor along Rattley Road or Hadron Drive.

During the Tailgate, the winning tickets will be drawn for the lab's United Way fundraising campaign raffle. Tickets are $1 each and are available for purchase from noon-1 p.m. through Thursday in the CEBAF Center lobby. Tickets will also be available for purchase at the Tailgate. All raffle ticket proceeds go to the United Way to support community services like after school programs. Winning tickets will be drawn for an Apple Watch, Apple iPad Mini, and a Fitbit! You need not be present to win.

-- Tailgate information, planned activities and access to the volunteer signup is available on the JAG webpage. http://www.jlab.org/intralab/committees/jag/

The JAG committee looks forward to seeing you there!
