     HAMMOND Southeastern Louisiana University tailgaters are being invited to let their decorating flair “roar” at Homecoming, Oct. 18.

     There is no charge for tailgating groups in Friendship Circle to enter the “Decorate Your Tailgate” contest. Participants can give a “Lion twist” to this year’s Homecoming theme, “Southeastern Sitcoms,” or create decorations inspired by the university’s green and gold colors.

     Judging will take place from noon until the 2 p.m. Homecoming parade. A Sweepstakes Winner and prize for Most Creative Décor will be announced during the 6 p.m. Lions vs. Northwestern State football game in Strawberry Stadium.

     For more information, call 985-549-5861. A complete schedule of Homecoming 2008 events, reunions and contests is available at
