Central Ohio Section Members Enjoy a Great Evening with the Columbus Crew!
The Central Ohio Section of ACerS, ASM, and other members of Columbus Technical Society gathered on Saturday, August 31, 2019 to enjoy music and promotional attractions inside the entrance to Mapfre Stadium. The Upper 90 Lounge created an open atmosphere for everyone to linger and socialize making connections across the groups. There was plenty of space to sit down to relax and there were plenty of hot dogs, brats and even chicken wraps to go around. The view from the lounge was the spot to catch the team warm ups and absorb the atmosphere of the stadium. It was a fair match with the Crew in the lead at halftime. Those that waited til the 4th minute of stoppage time at the end of the game got to witness the tie breaking goal from Chicago Fire. Attendees are looking forward to the event again next year!
