The West Lot Warriors Consortium (WLW) was founded in the fall of 2012 when its four Founding Fathers decided that they were not only able, but obligated to take tailgating to the next level in the West Lot of Ryan Field in Evanston, IL. Founded by Andrew Day, Nicholas “Roger” Rankin, Dr. Michael R. Roche, and Trenten “Gregory T. Baggins” Stafford, the consortium has already begun spreading its ideals among fellow #B1GCats fans.
With the help of Eugene, who was found on craigslist.org, the WLW were able to bring the ‘Cats straight to their tailgate via DirecTV. But the consortium doesn’t just stop at next level equipment, as breakfast burritos, kabobs, and bacon-wrapped bratwursts have all been found on the grill at their tailgates this year. The West Lot Warriors are always looking for new and innovative ways to take their tailgates to the next level.
