Big changes to the 2011 TKE Tent!

This past Friday, our beloved Pac-10 added two new teams and has now become The Pac-12 Conference. USC has officially become a member of The Pac-12 South, along with five other schools – The Arizonas, Colorado, Utah and FUCLA. With the aroma of change still percolating, the TKE Tent will also be moving… to a new location.

The TKE Tent Planning Committee is excited to announce that the new, bigger and greener home of the 2011 TKE Tent will be located at Expo Grass East!! We are all really excited about this new location and the additional space, shade and accessibility that it will gain us. This new location is only steps away from campus (in front of the Rose Garden) while still adjacent to the Coliseum. It will allow us to better utilize our space on game days, where we will be joined by the active chapter and when we expect more guests. It will also give you, your friends and your family more room to spread out and have fun. We’ll still have the same great beer (with seasonal and early-bird specials), expanded catering and plenty of TVs playing plenty of NCAA games from around the country. In addition to the major upgraded move, we are incorporating a lot of the member suggestions we received during the offseason, which includes more tables and seating, additional keg locations and more toilets available on high volume game days.

The time has come for you to make sure all of the USC Football Home Games have been put in your calendar, and that you are all signed up for the 2011 TKE Tent. As you all know, we are blessed with SEVEN home games this upcoming season (first time since 2000). Despite the NCAA’s decisions, USC Football is getting fired up for the 2011 season and so are we!  Beer orders are being made and vendors are in need of deposit checks, so we need you to SIGN UP TODAY!

The earlier you sign up, the easer it makes it to facilitate all of this year’s improvements. For those of you who don’t have USC Season Tickets, there are always tickets floating around the tent, and for those of you interested in becoming a USC Football Season Seat Holder, please let Alex Allper ( know as soon as possible. There ARE season tickets still available and IF enough people are interested, Alex will work on a group discount for new season seat holders.

Even though we have an additional home game this season, it is important that we continue to keep costs as affordable as they have been in the past. That being said, we are proud to announce that we will NOT be increasing prices this season. Check out all of the different options at

Our goal is to continue to make this great tradition viable and to ensure the TKE Tent will continuously stand tall game after game, season after season. With your participation in attending the Tent, you are ensuring, that not only will you have a comfortable place to tailgate with your friends and family, but you will also be helping us continue the amazing and unique tradition that we, as TKEs, are so lucky to be a part of.
