    EZ Up Tailgate Tent???

    With the parking lot opening at 7:00AM and Kick-off at 6:00PM I thought this week would be a good opportunity to invest in a cyclone tailgate tent. I'm looking for suggestions as to where I might pick one up at a good price. Thanks for the help

    Be careful, depending on where you are tailgating they can get a little testy about having the big tents up.

    Yep. Bought mine 2 years ago at this time. I got a red tent 10x10 for around $60. Well worth it for shade and rain!

    I've been looking into this as well. I've found 10x10's (red) with four walls on ebay for around a hundred bucks (and they're EZ I'm pretty sure).

    Although you wouldn't necessarily need walls for each game we actually used walls last year for the Texas Tech game and I was REALLY glad we had them with the icy wind.

    So how do you think these walled tents would do for bball tailgating? We want to start a new tradition and tailgate for a couple games this year. We figured during the nicer weather early on, and then for a good story we would try to do one in a blizzard. Any thoughts?

    Re: EZ Up Tailgate Tent???

    We bought one recently through the University Bookstore in the Memorial Union. We wanted to have a Cyclone tent, not some generic one that can be puchased elsewhere.

    They also have cardinal or gold side panels for inclement weather.

    We tried it out at the Kent State game, muy bueno.

    I always wanted to try this on a decent weekend when I was in college but never did get around to doing it!

    I think it'll still cost more than my friends and I can afford right now but....

    Do the side walls come with the tent, or do you have to buy those seperatly?

    Sam's Club has white ones..they fold up nice, but have some weight to them. That makes em sturdy.

    You buy the side panels separately. They will come in handy for windy and/or cold tailgates.
