Bill Hamid is Ready for Buzzard Point - Are You?
Fans all over the region are ready to celebrate the exciting news of big additions and numbers to the team.
Not only do we have a new defender with a difficult last name to spell, but we welcome back a true homegrown hero to Audi Field!
So come on down on Sunday afternoon to the Earth Conservation Corps' Matthew Henson Center to enjoy the camaraderie as we toast the return of Bill Hamid.
We suspect there may be a few "You Can't Hold Us Back" scarves on display over the coming weeks at 2000 Half Street SW (just two blocks from Audi Field).
A quick note from our volunteers - we are trying to process the deluge of new members as quickly as possible, but it is helpful to sign up online in advance as it helps speed up the line at the tailgate entry.
Beverages are free for current SE members. One-day memberships can be purchased online (bring an electronic or paper proof of purchase) or at the door.
Tailgating Tip: A fashionably late arrival is not your best bet - the beer line closes at 6:45 pm to give our volunteers time to get to Audi Field before kickoff!
Sunday 8/12: 4 pm - 7 pm
Wednesday 8/15: 5:30 pm - 7 pm

DC SCORES and More
If you were wondering who was serving those succulent ribs and wings at the tailgate, you have a fantastic local program to thank!
KBEC Group is a community based organization that offers a wide range of educational, job training and social services for the youth of our city.
The ECC has been gracious to offer this enterprise the opportunity to put their job skills in culinary arts to the test at our tailgates!
Our hope is that we can help in some small way to be the stepping stone in the careers of these young chefs and caterers. In the future you might even see them creating and serving delicious dishes at Audi Field.

Something else to sink your talons into while at the tailgate - join in the discussion on how to help the ECC build a state-of-the-art Eagle Aviary!
The aviary will be able to house up to three bald eagles, is fully customizable and allows for the eagles to retrain their wings to be able to fly.Of course our club would be on-board supporting this project!
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
The Good: Nothing beats hearing how the summer programs of our favorite charity brings smiles to kids!
How about six weeks of Summer SCORES packed with fun while building a family of campers and counselors?
Or how a D.C. legend Keith Tucker levels the playing field for kids?
We are absolutely thrilled to be able to help these poet-athletes experience the atmosphere of Audi Field as part of the Supporters' Development Academy - so please welcome the groups in Section 138!

The Bad: We only have two nearby away games left in the season. Fortunately our road trip director has made it easy to jump on another epic trek to New Jersey with multiple pick-up locations!
Ticket and Bus Package
$40 members - $50 non-members
If you have never experienced a rivalry romp like this one - hop on board. All are Welcome!

The Ugly: Gallows humor abounds with the hot mess that will befall Metro over the next few weeks. The combination of track work and a toxic stew of demonstrators coming to town creating road closures make Sunday's travel particularly challenging.
Bottom line - give yourself plenty of extra time to make it to the tailgate that begins at 4pm!!
Dive right into a veritable cornucopia of matches in the coming days! Membership comes with plenty of benefits (including a new jersey), so consider signing up!
There are also a variety of ways to volunteer with us this season, whether with our tailgate crew, with the tifo team, or in leading drumming and cheers. Interested? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
