Clear your calendar for Saturday, August 24th, because it’s time again to say the ultimate goodbye to summer and hello to football season, SEC style! Last year was the biggest SEC Picnic ever, with more than 700 SEC fans (and 40 LSU Fans) in attendance. Let’s try to top that this year.
Due to the addition of Texas A&M and Mizzou to our conference, this year we will be located again at Mamie D. Eisenhower Park, located at the intersection of Colorado Blvd. and Dartmouth Ave. (If you were in attendance last year, this is that same park.)
The fun will start at noon on Saturday, August 24th. Food service will be from 12:30PM-2:30PM.
Again this year our caterer will be Jim N’ Nick’s BBQ. Your ticket gets you pork and chicken BBQ, three sides, bread dessert, and tea or water. If you’re of legal drinking age, you also get all the complimentary beer you like. Kids ages 10 and under are free, but we have to have an accurate head count for them.
How to buy your tickets:
In order to partake in the BBQ and complimentary beer, there is a small cost involved. This year, it’s $15 per adult. As I said before, kids ages 10 and under are free, though we need to have an accurate count. (Your $15 gets your BBQ plate and unlimited beer, but also helps pay for our park permits, tables and chairs, rental of “facilities”, and a small amount to the Ole Miss Colorado Club to help out with materials and events for the year.)
You can pay two ways:
- Now you can simply purchase your ticket through the LSU Denver Alumni through this link: http://lsudenver.com/event/sec-picnic/. Please make sure to indicate how many adults and children you’re RSVPing for in the “Note to seller” box in the check-out page.
- Please make checks payable to LSU Denver, Inc. and indicate how many adults and children you are paying for in the notes of the check. The check needs to be mailed to Colette Gagnet, 707 17th Street ste. 3200, Denver, CO 80202
We MUST have your RSVP and payment by 9PM, Wednesday, August 7th, if you will be partaking of the BBQ and the complimentary beverages. Because of our numbers and our permits, there will be a very limited amount of walk up tickets that will be sold using a first come first serve basis.
Ticket Pick Up:
You will be able to pick up the tickets starting at 11:30am on August 24th at the park. Please remember to bring a valid ID if you will be drinking the complimentary beer.
