On Saturday, October 10, 2009, the West Point Chapter of the Field Artillery Association hosted their Annual Tailgate Party for the Army football game against Vanderbilt University at West Point. It was a beautiful fall day at the historic West Point campus on the Hudson River. The Army Black Knights football team and tailgating ruled the day! The Black Knights raised their record to 3-3 with a stirring overtime victory on a 42 yard field goal to win the game 16-13. Pre-game and post-game, the Field Artillery Association hosted their annual tailgate which was supported by Yuengling and Tailgate Haven! Members of the FA Association, their families, and friends enjoyed a tailgate featuring Yuengling Lager and delicious Bubba Burgers, courtesy of Tailgate Haven. Master of Ceremonies, Field Artillery Branch Rep., Major Dan Blackmon was the host and BBQ chef for the day. Attendees took home some fun gifts and giveaways courtesy of Yuengling and Tailgate Haven to remember the day by.

Thank you Tailgate Haven for your tremendous support of our uniformed men and women and their families! This was a great event which allowed us to celebrate with and show support for our Military Personnel with a first class tailgate and a victory for the home team - GO ARMY!!!

Don't forget, the Army/Navy football game is in Philly this year on Saturday, December 12, see you there!
