Free BubbaKeg: Bubbakeg seeks World's Greatest Tailgaters
BUBBA KEG® seeks World’s Greatest Tailgaters
The Bubba U. Competitive Tailgating Series will pit 30 teams of tailgating pros against one another for the title “Masters of the Parking Lot”
Atlanta, GA, August 1, 2009: The folks behind the Bubba Keg® brand of insulated mugs, coolers, and the new Bubba Keg Convection Grill, have launched a search for the World’s best tailgaters. The Bubba Keg staff will be selecting 30 “professional” tailgate teams to compete in their Bubba U Competitive Tailgating Series (BCTS). One winning team will receive an all expenses paid trip to the National Championship Game in Pasadena, CA.
To start the season, each team will be outfitted with a complete Bubba Keg professional tailgaters’ package valued at over $1500, including:
• A Bubba Keg Convection Grill
• A Bubba Keg Professional Tailgater Pop-Up Tent (10’ x10’)
• A full selection of Bubba Keg mugs & coolers
• A Flip Digital Video Camera to document their exploits
• Official Bubba U Professional Tailgater shirts
Selection & Qualifications
The BCTS Selection Committee will be accepting applications from now through August 21st. Candidates should e-mail their qualifications to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Committee will select 30 teams based on the following:
• Describe in 100 words or less why you (or someone you know) is the ultimate tailgater for your school.
• Photos and videos of your tailgate or similar activities, while not required, are strongly encouraged.
• Open to tailgaters at any NCAA Division 1 school.
• Must tailgate at least once per month during the season.
Unlike other more controversial rankings, the BCTS ranking system is purely democratic. Each month during college football season, the 30 teams will be required to submit official BCTS tailgating reports. This will include photos, video, and any relevant documentation of their tailgating activities (recipes, newspaper articles, police reports, etc.). Each report will be posted to BubbaKeg.com and voted on by the Bubba Keg community. At the end of the season, the team with the most votes will be headed to Pasadena. It’s as simple as that.
