HOTFAA Hits the 106th Big Game

HOTFAA is looking for a lot of beers and a lot of points from the Bears as we gather together for the 106th Big Game, Saturday, November 22, 2003 down on the farm (click here for a pre game analysis).

The tailgate party will be at the usual spot, Arboretum Blvd, 1.5 blocks south of the mall, east side of the road. Once again, we turn to Bear Notes editor T. Hough who provides the following details.

Anyone interested in pre-game festivities is welcome to join your fellow Bear Noters Saturday morning at Stanford.  There will be a BBQ if you want to bring something to cook.

We'll be off Arboretum Rd, approximately where the "b" in "Arboretum" is on this map, starting around 9:30.

My advice is take 280, take the Sand Hill exit and go east, down the hill toward Palo Alto and the Stanford mall, turn right on Arboretum. Look for a blue, T-bird convertible with script "Cal" painted on the doors.

Go Bears and cold beers!

Here is another map to the tailgate
