    Parking Passes

    Just wondering if most people got the same Parking Lot assignments as last year. Or if they got moved. Son-in-law has been a $250 Level donor for the last 5 years. Has been in the black top lots. Last year he was in Lot B4. And is now being moved to G-7 for some reason. Not a Happy Camper.

    Some also posted yesterday that they had been moved from paved lots to G7. So your son-in-law is not alone.

    Looks like he'll be parking where he's supposed to be according to his donation level.

    Re: Parking Passes

    $500 is the guarantee for paved lots. Folks that take a chance by not donating at that level....well...they take a chance to not get what they want.

    Re: Parking Passes

    Tell your son in-law to donate more. Just another $250 will get him a spot.

    Also the 4 paved lots to the north are the $250 level as well. Just seems strange to go from Lot B4 which was a $500 Level to Lot G-7 which is $100 level along with $250 level.

    Does the AD consider number of years at a given level (e.g., other donors have been donating $250 longer than your son-in-law, so they get the paved $250 lots)?

    Hopefully that just means they actually had enough people at the $500 level buying parking passes this year.

    Was he in A1, B3, C3, or D1 before last year? How did he end up in B4? By chance or by special request?

    Yes. You get priority points according to season tickets and donation level and also consecutive years. So unless a LOT of people started donating $500 then it is hard to comprehend getting bumped to Lot G-7 from Lot B4. We actually like the paved lots all the way to the North. But G-7 I don't really like. I would rather just park in the public lots to the south of the stadium.

    NO. Evidently they didn't have enough $500 level donors to fill those lots. We were actually happy with the paved lots that you listed. Now getting bumped to Lot G-7 is like a kick in the groin after being placed in a lot higher than we paid for last year. We only make about half the games anyway. End up giving the other half to other people.

    So you were in the paved North lots up until last year, then got bumped to B4 without requesting, and then got bumped back all the way to G7 this year? Is that right?

    It might be at least worth a shot at calling the ticket office and explaining the situation, though the paved lots are likely already all full. Could maybe at least start pleading your case for next year.

    Yep. That is right. 5 years in a row of $250 Level donation with 4 season tickets every years gets you a spot in Lot G-7. He is NOT happy.

    Like I said, we make half the games. Lot of money for 3 or 4 games a year, tops. Especially being stuck in Lot G-7.

    Re: Parking Passes

    My guess is that the fact that you were in B-4 means that you were getting bumped there because they weren't filling up the $500 dollar lot, otherwise you would have been in G-7.

    If you were high enough on the point priority list you would have been in one of the $250 dollar hard surface lots(A1, B3, C3, D1), but they were full with higher point $250 donors. Since they had room in the $500 lots you were getting placed there instead of G7. They must have filled up the $500 lots this year, so you were bumped out.

    But why wouldn't they put someone with more priority points in the B-4 lot in the first place? I mean if that's the reason they went all the way to G-7.
