    HEAT ADVISORY: Due to Saturday's forecast for extreme heat conditions in Atlanta, Georgia Tech athletics, in collaboration with the Institute's Office of Emergency Preparedness, has adjusted its athletics facilities policy to allow each fan to bring (1) sealed, clear bottle of water (up to 20 oz.) into Bobby Dodd Stadium for Saturday's game. Going forward, Georgia Tech will announce at least 24 hours ahead of a game if fans will be permitted to bring one (1) sealed, clear bottle of water (up to 20 oz.) into the stadium due to a forecast of extreme heat. Extreme heat is defined by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as a long period of heat and humidity with temperatures above 90 degrees.

    Why is the department of Homeland security defining what extreme heat is?

    For those that like drinking vodka or gemclear during the extreme heat, you can use these to seal your bottle full of liquor.


    Search ShowJade reseal caps on Amazon, I tried to paste a link, but for the life of me I couldn't get it to work lol.

    Wait, so our need for "security" is now defined by our ability to remain hydrated?

    That’s like 1/100 of the amount of water I’ll need to bake in that sun.

    Proper hydration occurs BEFORE you exert yourself, not during. By then it is too late. If you drink 100 oz of water a day or more you will have nothing to worry about.

    I play 3 sets of singles routinely in 90+F weather only only drink about 20 to 30 oz of water during the match. You snowflakes need to toughen up!

    They are the ones that determine what liquids and what devices can be brought into a Stadium or facility with large numbers of ppl that could potentially be a soft target for terrorists, zealots and others that want to cause mass harm or mass destruction

    Yes, but that's not what they're doing here. They're simply saying, "Hey, guys. It's really hot.'
