University of Wyoming President Robert Sternberg is cancelling the invite-only President’s Tailgate party, traditionally held before University of Wyoming games.

UW spokesperson Chad Baldwin says that Dr. Sternberg will instead be bringing his family to tailgate park, to celebrate with the students.  “President Sternberg has opted to spend his time with his family in tailgate park with all of the public,” Baldwin says.  “The resources that had been expended for those exclusive parties is now going to the students for their tailgate gathering before games.”

The university president traditionally has hosted an invitation-only tailgate party outside War Memorial Stadium, but Sternberg has decided to discontinue that practice.  “So that my family and I can be more involved in the pregame experience in Tailgate Park, I won’t be hosting an exclusive president’s tailgate event this year,” Sternberg says. “You’ll find the Sternbergs in Tailgate Park on football Saturdays this year, and I look forward to seeing you there.”

The first Wild Bunch Tailgate for UW students is scheduled from noon to 1:45 p.m. Saturday near Gate 3 of War Memorial Stadium in the grassy area south of the venue. The event will feature Pepsi products, a pig roast, live music by Chancey Williams and the Younger Brothers Band, games, activities and giveaways, all free of charge. The game begins at 2 p.m.

The Wild Bunch is an athletic-support group composed of UW students.

Meanwhile, the regular public pregame activities will take place in Tailgate Park, at the southwest end of the stadium.
