In the middle of Autzen Stadium...

What luck we had yesterday!


My friends are visiting from El Cerrito, CA, checking out colleges for their youngest daughter. They drove down to U of O yesterday for a tour and my daughter and I drove down later to meet them for dinner!

After dinner, I suggested we drive by the stadium, since Becky is a band-geek...and is specifically searching for a college with a marching band. (By the way, she'll probably end up in Oregon!). Anyway, we parked in the lot and walked up to the gate, just to peak inside. A workman appeared and opened the gate to leave. I said, "Howdy, " and he smiled. We explained our situaiton...and he said, "Well, come on in! Have a look around!"
We walked right out onto the astroturf...right into the middle of the stadium. My daughter and Becky proceeded to march out, band-style, while Wendy and I took photos!
Can you believe our luck??!!

I was a band geek in high school... Autzen was one of my favorite venues. :)

We went on a tour of UO with my son's school last year and it was really fun to play with the kids on that field. Good luck with her search!
