    Re: Fan Fest

    question...does it cost? and what all goes on? I can't really find anything information besides the fact that it is happening


    Hilton Coliseum was specifically built to hold in sound with a solid concrete structure, steel doors, and a crowd that sits just a few feet from the court. With a fan base that frequently ranks among the nations largest crowds, players from opposing teams, as well as Iowa State, have said that the floor has shaken due to the loudness of the crowd

    I thought about it, but I heard it was a total zoo last year, and I am not looking forward to that.

    No cost. But there's some stuff you can buy, if you choose. It's worth checking out, especially if you'd like to interact with some players and coaches and get some autographs. I like to act like the town drunk in "Hoosiers" and see if the coaching staff gives me a job, but it hasn't worked so far.

    The equipment sale is mainly shoes, socks, shirts, sweats, warm-ups/windbreakers. There are usually some duffel bags and the occasional heavy coat.

    Game-worn gear is rare. The players usually get first crack to buy their own stuff. Then staff members pick through. What's left goes out to the general public, with NCC members being able to get a slight head start.

    Being I am recovering from a shattered heel and the hot humid conditions, probably not. Don't want to wait in line while I am on crutches. I'll take my doctors advice and stay someplace where it is cool, at home on the couch with remote in hand!

    Actually no one got at it before the fans. There were a few players there and a few players parents too. Some real solid deals. Brand new nike golf pants and shorts for a dollar. I grabbed a pair of turf shoes for coaching for ten and grey shirt that says iowa state athletics. It was mostly all old logo stuff.

    Some pretty decent deals out there, tons of people there. Nothing too spectacular but some good tailgating clothes.

    Pretty hot and crowded, but didn't go for myself. Daughter had a great time. It was pretty cool to see players interact. Kelsie Bolt (sp?) offered to hold our 3 year old for a picture. She was a class act.
