Columbus-Bound for Orange & Brown Scrimmage!

Posted on August 18th, by Shannon Ebert in Tackling the Job. No Comments

shannonebertStaying in a hotel overlooking the city and walking on the Buckeyes’ home field were just a few highlights of this trip. After a lively day of training camp in Berea, we packed everything we needed to host training camp, and hauled it straight to Columbus for the Orange and Brown Scrimmage. As you might imagine, this entailed some serious coordination! Fortunately, the Cleveland Browns has a top notch special events staff ready and willing to make this happen efficiently, and I was lucky to be part of the whole thing.

Here’s everything we needed to put in place for all those eager Browns fans ready to watch their favorite team in action. Would you be surprised if this was only one of about thirty pages we needed to study for the Orange and Brown Scrimmage?
