    Tornado Siren... Again..

    Ok, a thread that never dies... I was looking at old veishea videos on youtube and I was watching this one for the Mike Jones concert.

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZccEebfwnmg]YouTube - Mike Jones @ VEISHEA '07[/ame]

    If you listen to the first 7 seconds you will notice there is a storm warning siren played over the loud speakers. Why is it ok in this respect (2:30 AM on central campus) but not allowed over the Jack Trice loudspeakers?

    Re: Tornado Siren... Again..

    I think we REALLY need to get them to play those over the JTS speakers...I mean do people really think widespread panic is gonna come from this? This is just another small thing that a city that really cares about its sports teams would be fine with. I really think if Ames and its community can't get something done with the tornado siren when A LOT of football fans want to see it implemented for only 6 or 7 saturdays a fall, it just kinda shows how little people care OVERALL about having a winning football team. Don't you think some upper-echelon team would have something like this IF they really wanted to in order to help create an awesome football environment. It's my firm belief that people will just have to be forewarned about it be played on home game days and they will get used to it in time. And if they don't catch on to a tornado siren going off 6 or 7 saturdays during the fall semester - than they are just dumb. And that is definitely a great point about it being played at Mike Jones at 2:30 in the A.M. Correct me if I am wrong, but I was there and don't remember a single thing about there being a cyclone or tornado warning or anything in the area.

    I've been a long time supporter/ wisher for having a good siren like that go off before a game at JTS.
    I'm sure if the weather was truly crappy out we could call it off. But for the rest of the games I think that would be amazing to have the team come out to.

    i just realized something...its probably the meteorology faculty that are preventing this. they are probably worried about the seperation of storm and state.

    i agree. and even then the only people within hearing distance of the siren would be those who care about cyclone football and are near the stadium. you cant tell me that the old folks on 12th street are even able to hear the speakers at the stadium on game day.

    I would like to add this to my list of most hated threads.

    Just play some AC/DC and get on with the game. Who gives a rip about the damn intro.
