From I-68, guests follow the signs to Frostburg State University. Stay on Braddock Road past the track and Cordts PE Center, and just past that on the left is an entrance to FSU with a big arched sign, which looks like an entrance. Turn to the left here and then immediately to the right, go past Pullen Hall on the left (and some parking spaces) to a big parking lot (the closest place to park) and PAC is the building straight ahead off the front of this lot.
What are you doing next Tuesday night?? Come out and see some great drum corps (including our own Phantom Regiment!) at University of Charleston’s Laidley Field, July 30th at 7:30pm.

You can park at the Convocation Center & walk to the stadium to pick up your tickets. Be sure to keep your parking receipt/ticket so that you don t have to pay if you leave and return later for the show.
PARKING NIU Parking Services controls the parking in and around the campus, including the stadium. They will be charging $5 per car and $10 for oversize vehicles. General spectator parking is at the Convocation Center off Lincoln Hwy (see map below). ADA parking is available for those with a placard or disabled plates. ADA parking is located on the West Grass (see map below). NIU parking fees still apply.
SEATING CHART For those that haven t been to Huskie Stadium before – the stadium is all ramps to the seats. Use the seating chart below to find the best gate to arrive at your seats. Your ticket has two gate numbers listed to help.
RE-ENTRY POLICY Concessions and souvenir booths will be outside the stadium. If you would like to visit these areas after you have entered the stadium you MUST receive a hand stamp upon exiting. You will only be allowed back into the stadium with this stamp. Your ticket stub alone will not get you back into the stadium.
Our 2013 Backyard Brawl fundraising competition between us and the Cavaliers comes to an end tonight. As of yesterday, we were still losing to them. But we all know about Regiment comebacks. Please donate today to help us beat the Cavaliers!
Robin Hartowicz, color guard 2002-2003, will be our representative for the announcement of the winner. The Cavaliers rep just so happens to be her dad, Chris. We don’t want to have her listen to her dad gloat for the next year!
Your tax-deductible donation helps to provide a life-changing experience to all of the young people who participate in our programs – drum corps, educational camps and our local music initiatives in our schools.
Please take a moment to donate today. The competition ends at 11:59pm CST tonight, Saturday July 13.
