2015 TVMA/Midwest Veterinary Supply Tailgate
Are you ready for some Aggie football? You don’t want to miss the Fighting Aggies face the Mississippi State Bulldogs at the first-ever TVMA/Midwest Veterinary Supply Tailgate, on Saturday, October 3, at the north corner of Simpson Drill Field next to Kyle Field at Texas A&M University (refer to the areas A, B and C on the map below for exact location). TVMA members, third- and fourth-year veterinary students and guests are asked to RSVP no later than September 30 on the TVMA website. Click HERE to RSVP now.
Because TV networks wait until closer to the date to schedule college football games, we are unable to publish the exact time the game will start as of yet. However, you can count on the tailgate beginning at least two hours prior to the game regardless of the official start time.
No need to worry about parking; parking lot 38 is located at the College of Veterinary Medicine at the corner of Agronomy Road and Raymond Stotzer Parkway and is a little over a mile away from Kyle Field. Free Game Day Transit Service will pick up and drop off fans at that corner. The parking fee for lot 38 is $20. A link to prepay for parking in the Central Campus Garage, Southside Garage, Northside Garage, Fan Field Parking Lots or Finfeather can be found HERE and runs from $25 to $30 per day.
Our tailgate promises to be memorable and chock-full of fun games, awesome prizes, tasty tailgate fare and cool drinks. Don’t have a ticket to the game? No problem! We’ll have three large-screen televisions connected to satellite so you won’t miss a single play.

HOTEL ROOMS AT A PREMIUM IN COLLEGE STATION
Although the TVMA conference room block deadline is not until Thursday, February 6, we have been informed our conference hotels, the Hilton and the Homestead Suites in College Station, are completely sold out of rooms for Friday, February 28, and Saturday, March 1.
Due to an SEC Indoor Track and Field Meet, TAMU basketball games and the A&M Softball Invitational against UConn, most hotels in the area are sold out. If you plan to attend the TVMA Annual Conference and have NOT secured a hotel room, there is only one way to find availability in Bryan/College Station without calling every hotel in town. On the Bryan/College Station Convention and Visitors Bureau website (www.visitaggieland.com), there is a special feature entitled “Book a Room.” When you enter your arrival and departure dates, it searches the entire area for available hotel rooms. This feature is updated daily.
If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact Ellen Forsythe, CMP, at 512/452-4224 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
