Due to the forecast of heavy rain and the likelihood of lightning across eastern North Carolina, East Carolina postponed its annual “Meet The Pirates” event scheduled for Saturday night at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.
The popular preseason fanfest is now set for Aug. 26 — one week prior to ECU's season opener against James Madison — and will be conducted from 5-7 p.m. at its normal location on Bagwell Field inside Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.
After receiving complimentary posters and schedule cards, Pirate fans can obtain autographs from second-year head coach Scottie Montgomery and the Pirate football team during the event before having an opportunity to support ECU's volleyball squad via free admission to its 7 p.m. non-conference match against Rutgers in Minges Coliseum.
