Carolina Panthers Fan Fest information

15 posts in this topic

Fan Fest is Saturday at Bank of America Stadium. Although the practice is not until 4, there are things happening on the field before then. At 3:30 they usually play a really nice highlight video from the previous season. Then the topcats take the field with a routine or two before the players make their way down.

Here are some tips:

- Although Fan Fest is free, you will still need to have cash on hand to pay for parking. The garages are usually cheapest. 3 Wells Fargo garage next to The Green is a short walk and pretty cheap/clean/safe. Get to it off of College St.

- If you want autographs, get there early and sit on the home side of the stadium (south). Seems like more things get signed there than anywhere else. It helps if you have a specific player in mind and have a sign or something made up for him to get his attention. It also helps to have a 9 year old next to you.

- Shade will be at a premium. Again, get there early if you want a shaded seat. Aside from the autograph seats, they are the most coveted.

- Bring a Camera! Pictures from fan fest are eligible in our training camp photo contest. Topcat pictures can be entered and may be a easy way to win that sucker.

- This will be the best action from camp. Something happens when those players are in the stadium in front of fans. They go at full speed and have a bit more contact.

Please feel free to add your own tips or experiences here...

On the autographs...would a 16 month old girl in a panther cheerleader outfit work as well as a 9 yr old?

Damnit, I am fresh out of 9 year olds.

They might be making it rain with footballs in the end zone seats like the last time they were at BOA.

This is actually my first fan fest but most importantly its my Japanese girlfriends first introduction to football. (Apparently the NFL isn't big in Tokyo) I don't know how she is going to handle football season between the Hokies and the Panthers we've only been dating 6 months so we will see....

But since she saw the Pink Newton jersey/shirt combo with rhinestones and glitter she is at least excited about dressing for the event.

Personal note I wouldn't mind getting Olsen to sign my 88 Dexter jersey.

there was one a couple of years ago where i think the earth was closer than normal to the sun and EVERYBODY sat in the shady section of the stadium.

so yes. get there early or risk being rotisseried.

Happened to me at the open practice. Any and all exposed skin was french fried.

    • Destiny really fuged me in terms of me playing other games. I have a week off this summer and maybe I will be able to dive back in, but I'd really like to finish Breath of the Wild too.  Witcher is so much fun, but iirc I'm kind of at a point where all my quests are a much higher level than me (like 30s and I'm a 15 or something). I probably need to back track and pick up a bunch of side quests that are manageable to boost my level some.    I like the Witcher's lore better than Skyrim, but I still think Skyrim is a more appealing game to me just because you can casually pick it up and start dominating. Witcher is more rewarding but takes more time. 
    • No way would I consider CAP a lock to make the roster. In fact, I think he may be on the outside looking in at the moment. But, the stats bear out that he was roughly equal to Stew in effectiveness last year. Stew averaged 3.78ypc and a TD once every 24 carries. CAP averaged 4ypc and a TD once every 18 carries. Hell, it may be generous saying that Stew was equal to CAP in effectiveness last year. I think a lot of Panthers fans suffer from nostalgia when looking at Stew. I still think he's a decent RB, but to hear some Panthers fans talk you'd think that the guy was a future HOFer. I feel like most of us (myself and the front office and coaching staff included) have perpetually overvalued Jonathan Stewart.
