Gameday Mini Program Rough Draft

Submitted by Lanyard Program on September 19th, 2011 at 2:24 PM

so, this developed out of trying to solve a few problems common to attending a game at the stadium (or watching at home) and grew into a sort of cheat sheet / mini program. i am looking for input about this, such as layout, content, info, ways to improve it, etc. i am willing to put these up each week if there is interest.

problem 1: in response to the larger, non-wallet friendly, ticket sizes, i have taken to using a clear press pass envelope on a lanyard to carry tickets into the game. sometimes these comes with ticket packages or bowl tickets(?). you can wear it around your neck, i choose to tie it around my belt loop and put it in my pocket.

problem 2: university programs are expensive, hard to handle in a tight stadium and get ruined laying on the ground, therefore, especially early in the season, i am often lacking some piece of information that would be really important just then; jersey number, eligibility, opponent info, etc. they used to give out those free ones, but i don't see them anymore.

solution: all vital info about michigan football printed on one sheet that can be folded to fit into the clear press pass or back pocket that is free.

I like it. I have two comments: (1) It might be nice to have the players numbers listed next to their name on the two-deep (I realize you can cross-reference to the roster, but adding #s to the two-deep should be pretty easy and I think might make it a tad easier to use); and (2) maybe put the start time after the date in the future games section.

Either way. I'm not complaining. Thanks again.

Opposing player data would be welcome.  Year, height, weight, h.s. achievements, time at position, injuries, stats this season, etc.  This blog should post an online kiosk that allows you to download and print opposing player data cards in a format that can be carried around the neck else in a pocket.
