Official Extremeskins Tailgate - 8/25/12
Welcome RG3 to Fedex Field!
The insanity has begun! The hype over RG3 over these past months has
escalated into an absolute frenzy. Due to this, we anticipate that this may
be one of the most attended preseason games we have seen in decades.
I can only imagine the roar as he runs out of the tunnel onto the field. We
don't know what our primary charity will be this year yet, but we will have
the Ronald McDonald Pop Tabs container out there like normal. I hope to
see a lot of fans at the stadium and at the tailgate!
This year the Extremeskins Tailgate will have containers available for the
first year of the Extremeskins Charity Fund. There will be two containers.
One container will be for pop tabs (the little tabs on the top of aluminum
beer and soda cans)... this is to benefit the Ronald McDonald House. If
you drink a beer or coke, don't forget to take off the tab and put it in the
container before throwing away!!! The other container will be for monetary
donations, and will be for the the charity selected slected this year: TBD -
Please check the charity threads! Please donate what you can!
Our tailgates last year were absolutely fantastic and I want to thank
every single one of you guys, because people have been stepping up
more and more with lots of great food, drinks and much needed supplies.
This tailgate is getting bigger and better year after year, and the reason
is because each and every one of you does such an awesome job. Don't
think this goes unnoticed either... The Redskins organization knows who
we are and likes how we present ourselves as fans and as responsible
tailgaters. Lets continue to do our best as the best tailgate at Fedex Field!
I am sure most of you are familiar with our tailgate threads, but I like to
emphasize that we try to be as organized as we possibly can. At the
bottom of this post you will see 4 sections (Food, Drinks, Supplies and
Needed Items). We ask that if you plan on attending, and if you can donate
items to the tailgate, that you check what we have and what we need and
post what you can bring. I will keep the lists updated as frequently as I can.
We understand that in some situations, that folks cannot bring something,
but we do ask that people who regularly attend the tailgate try to chip in
PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! Remember:
Food/Drinks/Supplies are appreciated over monetary donations
What is it:
We are a gathering of die hard Washington Redskins fans who love to
come together and have a good time out in the lots before and after the
game. Our tailgate has become a very popular point at Fedex Field, and
we have been featured on numerous news and television shows. If you like
to eat great food and enjoy tasty beverages while playing games, listening
to tunes and chatting about the brugundy and gold with fellow die hard fans,
then this is the place for you!
When is it:
August 25th. 12:00 pm - 3:45 pm. Post game tailgate times vary (but yes
there is a post game tailgate!). The tailgate always starts the moment the
parking lot opens (4 hours before game time) and we start packing up around
30-45 minutes before game time. Many of us arrive even earlier to do a bit of
pre-tailgating on Redskins Road before the lot is opened... you can usually
find a bunch of us at the very front of the line
Where is it:
We have found a nice spot in the Fedex Field parking lot that offers us a ton
of room and protection from cars running all over the place as well as other
Section E-43 in the Green Lot (see map below).
- Take exit 17B to merge onto MD-202 W/Landover Rd toward Bladensburg W
- At the first light, turn left onto Brightseat Rd
- At the first light, go straight onto Redskins Rd (stadium should be straight ahead of you)
- When you get into the parking area surrounding the stadium, make the first available left
- Go to the back of the lot (tree line)
- Follow till you see the signs on the poles for E-42 & E-43 (we are smack in between)
- We are against the treeline. You should see a flagpole with a black ExtremeSkins flag and redskins flag.

Who can come:
Absolutely everyone... the more the merrier! This tailgate originated as a
tailgate for the ExtremeSkins and RedskinRoadtrips boards, but it has
expanded and has brought in not only folks from other fan sites, but it has
become a haven for all Redskins fans, their friends and their families. We
accept fans of all sorts, even of other teams. We ask if you come to the
tailgate, that you remember one thing... treat others as you would want to
be treated! We appreciate the razzing of opponents fans, as a matter of
fact, we encourage it! We do not however, tolerate any physical violence,
threats, property damage, etc...
Fans of all ages are welcome (We have non-alcoholic items as well). We
have lots of kids at our tailgate
What can I do?
We prefer that folks bring food/drinks/supplies rather than money. While
we do not solicit any contributions to the tailgate, they are welcome.
Many of us who help run the tailgate spend alot of money on the supplies
that we provide at every tailgate. Anything you can do to help is highly
desired and appreciated, such as bringing food, drinks, supplies or even
donating monetarily (which is distributed among the core members of the
