Former Irish standouts Shane Walton, Tony Rice and Allen Pinkett will appear at The Notre Dame Experience this weekend and will be available to sign autographs for one hour.
For years, the Joyce Center has been the “pregame meeting place” for several thousand Notre Dame alumni. In an effort to add to this tradition, the Notre Dame athletics department is providing an interactive fan experience for each of the 2005 home football games in the Joyce Center Fieldhouse (north dome).
For the fourth consecutive season, the “Notre Dame Experience” will combine with the Notre Dame Alumni Association Hospitality Center with interactive inflatables, photo booths, autograph sessions, football trivia and stage activities. Gates open three hours prior to kickoff and admission is free. Autograph signing sessions schedule:
11:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon – Shane Walton
12:00 noon – 1:00 p.m. – Tony Rice, Allen Pinkett
Note: Shane Walton played eight games for the Calgary Stampeders in the CFL last season, proving he is fully recovered from an injury that kept him out of the NFL in 2005-06. He ended up with 24 tackles, one interception and four passes broken up for Calgary and has plans to return to the NFL next season.
