Instructions From Stadium Security (Enter NW Field Gate)

Entering the stadium

When arriving at the stadium from the rehearsal, enter through the Player-Gate like the Redcoats and walk through the stadium and exit to the Dawg Walk.  After the Dawg Walk, Alumni members can enter the stadium through any gate with their ticket.

Enter the field

At 7:00 pm, the Alumni Band can begin to access the field.  (Kickoff is actually 7:39 PM.)  The Alumni Band should enter the field at the NW gate.  The Alumni should stay on the North/Visitor sideline from the 25-yard lines to the endzones. Please have them stay out of the team bench area where the field tarp is on the ground. After the teams leave the field Alumni can access the two endzone areas.

Exit the field

Alumni can use any of the four field exits to get off the field.  As soon as the last song is finished Alumni should leave as quickly as possible so that we can have the field ready for play before the clock hits 0:00.
