The TTU Athletics Caravans have evolved over time to become one of the most popular summer traditions enjoyed by Golden Eagle fans across the region. Donning several different monikers over the years, typically to represent the theme of the athletics department, the 2018 edition has been labeled as the Wings Up Caravans.
What exactly are the Wings Up Caravans? Each summer, Tech Athletics hits the road to spread excitement and information for the upcoming seasons for all 14 of the department’s programs, making several stops all over the region. In 2018, the Wings Up Caravans will visit 10 different locations. The events span the months of July and August this season.
The caravan will be at the Sparta Walmart, 5-6:38 p.m. on July 26. The caravan will bring members of the football team and the men’s basketball team to the event.
Sponsored by 98.5 KISS FM, Pepsi, and TTUsports.com, every caravan will run from 5 p.m. to 6:38 p.m. Each event features a tailgate atmosphere, with free hot dogs and soft drinks. Prizes and giveaways will also be held at each event, including registration for a grand prize drawing at the end of the caravan slate.
The grand prize registration will be conducted by 98.5 KISS FM – the broadcast home of Golden Eagle football – and the winner will be announced at the final caravan stop, on Aug. 28, at the Algood Walmart.
