Chrissi briefly discussed Phase 2 of the athletic facility upgrades, to include updating Delaware Fieldhouse and make it the football “home”. We expect a more formal announcement later this year.
Coach Rocco reported on the depth of talent at each position, and the experience of having everybody back from the successful and unique spring season.
Coach Ambrose reviewed the QB position and the solid competition behind Nolan Henderson. Nolan is an elite QB that complted over 70% of passes. He further commented on the entire squad’s excitement when Anthony Paoletti comes in for a play.
A question was asked from our group about the new electronic ticketing process. Deputy A.D. Jordan Skolnick responded that if the process proves difficult, fans can call the ticket office and they will print the tickets for you.
The next meeting will again be at the Newark Country Club on 9/10/2021, prior to the St. Francis U. contest.
Our first meeting is Friday August 27th at the NEWARK COUNTRY CLUB, 300 W. Main Street in Newark.
Our speaker is Head Coach, Danny Rocco. As usual, doors open at 11:00, food is served at 11:15, program starts at nnon.
This change, for at least the first four meetings, is due to the inability of having food served to us at the BOB. We will hope to return to campus as soon as we can. However, the staff at the country club has been extremely accommodative to us on short notice, and for this, we thank them.
We expect there to be the availability of a cash bar during the meeting. Depending upon any changes from the CDC and the State of Delaware, facemasks will be optional for those that are fully vaccinated.
Also, due to rising prices everywhere, the cost of entry is now $25 for members and $30 for guests. This may be temporary, dependent upon circumstances when we return to the BOB.
Also note a change in date of our Rutgers week meeting to Wednesday, September 15th.
