The annual "Stuff Party" was its typical business meeting paired with food, fun, and cold cocktails. This year....just for a change of pace......the BATTers decided to embrace their philanthropic side and participate in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Not only do our members know how to pass a good time, but they are generous! When charity comes with soaking krewe members....that's just a BONUS! Geaux Tigers! Donate to: www.alsa.org or www.teamgleason.org
Okay guys....I'm filling for Ms. Heather while she is at "the happiest place in the world".
So bear with me on this blog posting. I may just stink at it.
Saturday the weather started out just misting at times....well the bottom fell out of the sky just before "kick off". What a mess! Everyone who stuck around to help load the van and put stuff away, many thanks. To those who didn't, well, I'm telling Santa!!

I think we all wanted to see the Aggie quarterback (name?) run around our defense. THAT DID NOT HAPPEN!! What a thrill seeing the Tigers step it up and beat those toy soldiers 34-10!
Well that's all for now.....have a fantastic week and a blessed Thanksgiving.
The sky was blue, the weather was fantastic, and a few fabulous BATTers were living it up at the tailgate. Not even the disappointing loss the week before could daunt the excitement of our group. What started as a smaller group than normal, grew into an AWESOME tailgate!
