Who will be playing?

Can I bring guests who are not Loyola students to this event?
Yes. Students are welcome to bring guests to this event. Please make sure each guest has bought their own ticket for the event. 

If I did not register online, can I still attend this event?
The event is a ticketed event, so you will need to purchase a ticket to attend. 

Can I bring my own food, alcohol, or sporting equipment?
You may not bring in alcohol other than Boordy wines and only food purchased at Boordy is permitted in the Barn, Tasting Room, and Wine cellar. There are no ball games or sporting equipment allowed at Boordy. 

Can I purchase food there?
Yes, if you want something heavier than cheese and crackers, delicious food from Lib's Grill and ice cream from Keyes Creamery will be available for purchase.

What if it rains?
This event is rain or shine. Boordy states they do not give refunds for inclement weather.

Where can I find the group upon my arrival?
We will gather near the entrance of the vineyard shortly before Noon. One of the GSO members will be holding a balloon. Please look for them to check in. By 12:15pm we will make our way to the picnic area.

Can I arrive late to this event?
Yes, you can. That being said, we will be arriving a little before Noon to try get a great seat at the picnic tables, so it is best to plan on arriving by then. If you are not able to attend at Noon, please feel free to join us when you get there! While the event goes until 5p.m., we will be there until at least 2p.m.

What should I bring with me?
Dress comfortably, as you will be outdoors in a rural area.  Although Boordy has picnic tables, they fill up quickly.  It would be a good idea to bring a folding chair or blanket.  Of course, remember to bring your ticket.

Please email the GSO if you have any additional questions at gso@loyola.edu.
