So Shaggy and I have an idea for Feb 5th.
Yes I know, Shaggy and I coming up with an idea is scary. Why is it in the uhwarrie forum? Why is it for Feb 5th, isn't that the day the 2017 Superbowl will be held? Have you guys lost your minds? The answers are it has to be, yes and maybe.
So the idea is "why not hold a Superbowl party at Arrowhead Campground?" Sure the trails will be closed, but the campground and the range
will be open.
TV reception won't be problem. At my last trip to Fort Federick
, I actually watched the MNF game on NFL Mobile with my iPhone. I had a 4g signal at Arrowhead during the Hallowharrie run and can connect my iPhone to a LED projector with AppleTV. So we will be able to see the game like an old fashion drive-in.
We can keep the food simple, standard tailgating fare (e.g., chips and dip, wings, dogs and sausage) cooked over a fire.
The average temps
in Feb are just 8 degrees colder than in November, so that shouldn't be much of an issue especially if we keep a good fire going. Precipitation could be an issue if for no other reason than it could block the TV projection onto the screen, but we can deal with that if we have enough shelters.
The biggest issue that we see is that some will have to go to work the following day, so we will be limited to NC locals and those who are either retired or have some flexibility in their work schedules.
So what does everyone think? Have Shaggy and I lost our minds or is this a viable concept?
