Official Extremeskins Tailgate - 12/08/13
WAS.png    VS    KC.png

The Extremeskins Tailgate has become an institution at Fedex Field, and it is because of all the members involved. The dedication, hard work and investments by folks year in and year out is second to none. This tailgate is getting bigger every year and is well respected because of our passion, our friendly welcoming environment and the charity we do. The Redskins organization has recognized our contributions and how we present ourselves and because of that, has recognized our tailgate as official Redskins Fan Captains. Lets continue to do our best as the best tailgate at Fedex Field!
Once again, the Extremeskins Tailgate will have containers available for the Extremeskins Charity Funds. 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 selected this year: Camp Fantastic (for kids with cancer) Please check the charity threads! Please donate what you can, there are needy folks out there that can use our help!

In addition, fans attending the game against the Kansas City Chiefs are encouraged to bring new, unwrapped toys to support the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation "Touchdown for Tots" toy drive benefiting the Toys for Tots Foundation. Local Marines will be stationed at all stadium gates and suites entrances on Sunday, Dec. 8 with collection bins for donated toys. Toys will be distributed to children in need at the Redskins annual Skins Santa Shoppe. Monetary donations will also be accepted. Fans can also visit any official Redskins store location for donation bins or go to RedskinsTeamStore.com to make a tax-deductible donation to the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation. All monetary donations collected from Dec. 1 to Dec. 17 will be donated to "Touchdown for Tots." Every $10 donated will put a new toy in the hands of deserving children in the D.C area.

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 something.
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 in numerous media broadcasts. 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?
December 8th. 9:00 am - 12:40 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 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 (featuring concrete & grass areas) 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 amenities.
Section E-43 in the Green Lot (see map below).
From 495

  • - Take exit 17B to merge onto MD-202 W/Landover Rd toward Bladensburg
  • - At the first light, turn left onto Brightseat Rd
  • - At the first light, keep straight onto Redskins Rd (stadium should be straight ahead of you) and start getting into the lanes on the left.
  • - When you get into the parking area surrounding the stadium, make the first available left
  • - Keep towards 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 yellow Redskins Fan Captain flag.

Who Can Come?

Absolutely everyone... the more the merrier! This tailgate originated as a tailgate for the ExtremeSkins board, but it has expanded to so much more 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, but keep it civil (treat those as you would be treated)! We do not 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    :)
When it comes down to it, we are all fans of a game and all want to have a good time. As the Hogettes always say: Hate the team (especially Dallas), not the fan!

What Can I Do?

We are a potluck style tailgate, so 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 group).
During the course of this tailgate's history, every year, we have had people step up and become core members that help with the organization, setup and supply of the tailgate, which has resulted in its success. If you would like to help out in this capacity, please let us know, we desperately could use the help!
If you are bringing a food, drink or supply item to the tailgate, please post a response in this thread with what you plan to bring !!

Who Do I Contact?

You can get almost every question answered by posting in this thread, but if you have any specific questions or concerns, please contact Huly or myself via PM or by 
emailing: pez@gwu.edu or skinshuly@gmail.com
We will try to get back to you in a timely manner.
Again... please try to post your question in this thread. Most of the members in this thread are ES Tailgate veterans!

Hard to say who is coming as my brother is trying to sell his tickets, but I will be there regardless:


Spicy Italian sausages


Bag of forks

Stack of plates

Roll of paper towels



...TBD (will bring flour tortillas, etc. if Pez/somebody makes something that could use them)


This will mark another Chiefs game with low demand for tickets (2001 and 2009 were particularly memorable).  I am glad they will not be here again until 2021 (and maybe we will get lucky and that game will be in London)........

As a reminder folks... Anyone who can bring a main dish is highly appreciated...

Huly and I won't be able to make anything fancy for this game, as we are driving around Sam Huff in a parade tomorrow.

We will try to do the best we can.

Weather update for FedExField (as of Saturday morning):

The low at dawn will be 31 degrees. 

The high Sunday will be 32 degrees. 

The temp will stay at 32 all day and only rise to 34 by midnight. 

Wind will be 6 mph all day. 

There is no chance of precip until about mid morning - around 9 or 10 am.  That's when the snow starts.  The chance of snow is 90% through mid afternoon when it changes to wintry mix.  Total accumulations 1-2 inches.   Wintry mix will continue until midnight when it changes to all rain.

As far as driving conditions, I personally don't think it'll be a problem because it's been so warm.  The pavement will retain heat (the high is 43 Saturday) and melt the snow as it falls, since 31 degrees isn't really cold enough to bring the pavement below freezing so quickly, which means the snow will melt as it falls on the pavement.  My humble opinion.


But as far as tailgating, obviously you'll want to have some cover...


If you're a noob at this, you'll want rain pants in the stands.  A simple rain coat or poncho won't cut it because the water will pool in your seat.  :)
