Great Tailgating News; Let's Meet The Dutta Corporation; Who Do We Benefit?
NEW FOR 2015 - TAILGATE COMPETITION! FHI is hosting our first ever Tailgate Competition! The theme this October 17th is "Road to Rio." Use your Tailgating spirit to help cheer on our competitors as they look to qualify for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janero, Brazil.
There will be two categories for judging: 1) Best decorations/presentation (Brazilian and/or Olympic theme) 2) The best Caipirinha cocktail
Grand prize for Presentation is half off the price of your tailgate spot in 2016! We will have other great prizes, too.
Our guest panel of judges will be around to judge tailgate sites from 9:30 -11:30 am. If your guests insist on eating before the judges arrive, take pictures of your spread. Participation is optional, of course, although we highly recommend learning to make the Brazilian national drink! Remember no flying flapping flags that will scare our equine competitors. And, unfortunately, no flaming fire to cook Brazilian beef.
Can't wait to see your Olympic spirit! Share your photos on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook and be sure to use the hashtag #DuttaFHI so we can see how great you all look!
Our friends from The Equiery will be tailgating again with us this year. Bring us your best Olympic spirit, guys!
