USNA 89 Beat Army Tailgater 

We're back! Join us in the Meadowlands as we reboot our Beat Army tailgater! Join about 200 of your closest friends as we get ready to cheer Navy on to a new winning streak!

200 registered so far (as of 1054 EST, 12/8/21)

Most details are below, but here's the really important stuff:


You can donate any amount you think is fair - we suggest $25 per adult and $5 for everyone under 21. Note that we're providing PLENTY of food, beer, wine, spirits, coffee, and hot chocolate, so there's no need for you to bring stuff and drag it across the parking lot. You can donate online or just donate some cash when you get there. We're not going to shake you down for money at the tailgater, so please drop it in one of the donation boxes you'll see around the tailgate area (or just give it to either Andy Caufileld or me).

Remember that this is all volunteer driven - donations allow us to buy the food and drink, maintain equipment, pay fees, etc. It's impossible for us to do with without your donations!


We have prepaid trailer parking in LOT L. I can't be sure exactly where we'll be setting up, but according to the website we will be directed to park along one of the curbs (which is an awesome situation for us).Either way, we'll be in Lot L

Landmarks. We'll have the trailer and - at a minimum - our USNA 89 flag. If the weather allows, the '89 Goat will be up and doing his thing!

Stuff happens. In 2015, one of our trailer tires blew out, delaying our arrival by an hour. Parking lot attendants can sometimes not know their own rules. Bottom line - flexibility is the key in a new location like this. We're going to have to set things up and adapt if we get push back from attendents. I've showed pictures of our typical crowds to the folks at MetLife and they didn't flinch, so we should be good to go, but just please be flexible with us!

Check your phone if we had some change - for whatever reason. If you don't hear from me, we're in Lot L - just look for the trailer and our landmarks. If somethiing is different, I'll post it on Twitter (@usna89) and on Facebook - and I'll try to push an e-mail to registrants if I have good access to the system. REMEMBER - if you hear nothing from me, WE ARE IN LOT L. I won't push out location information if we're in Lot L and the trailer is parked - just look for the Goat or the Flag.

Tailgater Registration Options:

  1. Register and donate online using our suggested donation amounts.
  2. Register and select "pay at the door," and then just donate whatever you feel like when you get there.

WHO CAN COME: Everyone and anyone! The more the merrier! Invite co-workers, clients, whoops, grads from other classes, it doesn't matter!

HOW IT WORKS: We'll bring everything. Food, adult beverages, softdrinks, tables, chairs, treats for the kids, music -- everything. You just need to bring yourself and make a donation to help us pay for everything.

OTHER QUESTIONS: Call me/Text me at  443-744-1059 or e-mail me at  During game day, it can be very difficult for me to hear / feel the phone ringing, but keep trying! It's tough to hear/feel texts come in, so calling normally is the best way to get a hold of me.

WANT TO HELP OUT?  Please let me know at, or just roll up your sleeves when you get there! We usually can use the help with cooking and moving food around!
