Fighting Hawks Fans,

We are pleased to have our team in the Frozen four for the third time in three years. We think this year’s destination is the best ever – Tampa, Florida. We have put together some ‘rules of the road’ to follow while you are in Tampa. Have a great time!

  • Pool water is not potable. Do not drink, cook with or bathe in pool water.
  • In Florida, it is against the law to hit a deer with your car – on purpose
  • Jean shorts are not swim trunks
  • Leave snowmobile suits and Carhartt gear at home
  • Staring at the sun can cause blindness
  • Seafood in Florida does not include walleye
  • If a strange person invites themselves to your room, they are a cop
  • Avoid local hotels with crime scene tape
  • If airport personnel ask you for ID, belt buckles do not count
  • Hertz reminds us that you cannot hunt from moving vehicles

Please follow these rules and have a great time in Tampa,

UND Athletics
