The FWRC board of directors announced a new venue for the club’s annual tailgate hamfest, scheduled for August 20. Rather than the traditional location on the parking lot of Good Shepherd United Methodist Church, this year’s event will be in a parking structure on the campus of Purdue Fort Wayne (PFW).
The club has reserved the second level of parking structure number three, in the northern part of the PFW campus, near Rhinehart Music Center. This location offers advantages including:
- Protection from rain
- Fewer mosquitos and other insects
- Access to rest rooms
The easiest way to get to the parking structure is to use the “St. Joe Entrance” to enter campus on Dean Drive from St. Joe Road, just north of Stellhorn Road. Follow Dean Drive to the parking structure.
Set up will begin at 5:30 p.m. and the hamfest will begin at 6 p.m. There are no fees.
