    Trade G7 for paved lot parking pass(season)

    Got our parking pass with our tickets and would like to get onto the pavement if possible.(toddler) We have usually been getting C4 but must have been outdonated this year. I'll consider any option.

    I have the same issue... I donated $250 (recent graduate) and my 3 options were c3, b3, and another (same choices as my father who donated the minimum and I get thrown out in g7 and one of the reasons for donating that much was for better seating and paved parking. How does someone who donates less gets parking in c3...gonna call ticket office tomorrow

    Pretty sure $500 is the minimum if you want to guarantee paved parking. Doesn't mean you can't get in for less...just that it is a crap shoot and if you are donating less and a first time donor/season ticket holder you are likely headed to G7.

    That's how I understand it. G7 is the $100/$250 donor lot.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Do they factor in how many years you have had season tickets, as well as what level of giving you are?

    We have had this discussion with the Cyclone Club before. Do not call the ticket office, parking is not there thing, call the National Cyclone Club office they handle parking. Anyway we were told that if you request to get a lot with a group of family, friends other people that your whole group gets placed according to the lowest season ticket holder. So say you have the points to make it to the paved lots, but someone else in your group does not, you all get the lower lot. Just the way they do it. Good luck, but looks like parking passes are at a true premium this year, we all got made that they charged for them, knowwe have folks willing to pay more than they are worth for the passes. Amazing how things work out isn't it. High parking pass demand will make for bigger, louder and better crowds.

    Go Clones.

    Yes you get points based on # of tickets, and years getting them, total lifetime donations, etc.

    Now I am really hoping I got the same lot last year. We are cardinal and did the give 110%. I guess I will find out tomorrow.

    Until they close it due to rain like the last few years.

    Re: Trade G7 for paved lot parking pass(season)

    my guess is they assign parking passes based on lifetime points, so you may be a first time $250 donor, but your dad is a longtime $100 donor, therefore, he has more lifetime points than you and still gets in C3... i know it is frustrating, but it does reward people that have been supporting the clones for a long time...
