In the second video of Exmark’s 2019 Game Day Tips series, Home Field
Sights and Sounds
, Stinchcomb offers two cost-effective options for
presenting an authentic home field feel at your next game day gathering.

“Once you’ve determined where your game day gathering spot is going to
be, it’s time to focus on why everyone is coming over – to watch the
game.”

Stinchcomb says that while elaborate, hard-wired outdoor audio/visual
systems top many sports fans’ wish lists, the reality is such systems
often come with a number of inherent challenges. Hefty price tags,
weather resistance shortcomings and labor-intensive installations are
issues many owners face.

“And once they’re in place, they’re anything but easy to relocate,” he
adds.

The first alternative Stinchcomb recommends is a projector and screen
setup using an inflatable or retractable projection screen.

“Budget-friendly projector and screen combos can be purchased or rented
for far less than a traditional exterior entertainment setup. And, just
as important, they can be positioned in a back yard area to best suit
the specific viewing party type and size.”

Setup of a projector and screen is quick and easy. First, position the
screen in the desired area, preferably on the outer perimeter of the
gathering space to maximize viewing sidelines.

Next, position the projector at the proper distance from the screen,
which Stinchcomb says is generally calculated by multiplying the screen
width in inches by the projector’s throw rate.

“Be sure the projector placement doesn’t impede foot traffic, and tape
down all electrical cords to eliminate trip hazards. Finally, enable the
projector by running a cable line in, or by connecting a laptop and
streaming the game through your cable or satellite provider’s app,” he
advises.

The second option Stinchcomb offers for creating a memorable game day
experience is even easier and less expensive to execute than a projector
and screen setup.

“Take an existing in-home television outdoors, with a wireless
connection to your cable or satellite provider…and let the games begin.”

For a limited time, when fans purchase select Exmark Radius or Lazer Z
zero-turn mowers they have the opportunity to purchase an upgrade to one
of 30+ limited edition, full-suspension collegiate seats. Not only does
the seat show fandom, the full suspension system offers a dramatic
improvement in comfort compared to non-suspension designs.
