Panoramic Photo Scheduled for Stadium
Georgia Tech devotees have the opportunity to browse for Georgia Tech merchandise and show their spirit at a number of upcoming events.
Leading up to Georgia Tech's homecoming, Yellow Jacket fans will want to drop by the Avenue East Cobb location of Mori Luggage and Gifts. On October 17, from 6 - 8 p.m., refreshments and balloons will be available along with a 20 percent discount on Georgia Tech merchandise. Buzz will be on hand and there will be a chance to enter a drawing for two tickets to the Georgia Tech homecoming football game against Army on October 20.
Tech fans will also have the opportunity to join thousands of their fellow Georgia Tech supporters to take part in a unique moment in history when a panoramic portrait of Bobby Dodd Stadium at Historic Grant Field is made during the homecoming game. Everyone is encouraged to wear their gold and white to the game to enhance the impact of the shot.
"We targeted the Tech/Army game since our opponent's colors are gold and black and we have a higher probability to blanket the stadium in gold," said Georgia Tech Licensing Manager Aimee Anderson. "We encourage all Georgia Tech fans attending the game that day to wear gold and white so that we'll have an image blazing with our official colors."
Rob Arra and his associates, who specialize in panoramic sports stadium images, will be capturing this memorable photograph. The print should be available on the photographer's Web site at www.e-stadium.com a week following the game and eventually will be sold at the Barnes & Noble @ Georgia Tech Bookstore.
"With skyscrapers surrounding the area, Georgia Tech's football stadium is certainly located in one of the nation's most unique settings," said Arra. "We are so excited to have the opportunity to capture this treasure and the spirit of Georgia Tech's dedicated fans."
"We are making a concerted effort to grow our licensing program this year," said Katherine Bows, Georgia Tech's director of marketing communications. "We encourage our fans to have fun participating in these activities while also supporting the many student programs funded by our licensing program."
