Painting the "A" behind Hughes Stadium
Jenny Harding, For TSM

My wife, Jenny, and I had a rare opportunity on Saturday. We helped paint the CSU "Aggie A" behind Hughes Stadium in Fort Collins. Usually freshman CSU students do the job, but they were busy with orientation over the weekend so members of the CSU Alumni Association were given 1st crack at it.

We took the morning shift. There were over 50 of us. They divided us into 5 teams of 10 or 11 people. We each got the opportunity to run the sprayer.  The tough part was painting the overgrown vegetation. It's almost impossible to get total coverage with the white paint.

My lovely wife took most of these pictures of our adventure.

This YouTube video shows one of the members of our team using the sprayer to paint the "A".
