    Game time

    I admit I have not been to a game in Hilton for many years. The local radio station gave away a pair of tickets to the Iowa game today and I won. My question is, how early do I need to show up for a 7 pm tip? How early do they let you in Hilton? Outside of at Hilton, where else could I park? Thanks in advance.


    Friends don't let friends wear black & gold. Build a man a fire, you keep him warm for a day. Set a man on fire, you keep him warm for the rest of his life. Set a hawkeye fan on fire, you make Iowa a better place to live.

    If you have reserved seating, just show up before tip off. They let you in an hour before Tip, and why not just park at Hilton? There is plenty of room & it's free.

    Just park in the free parking by hilton.

    If you pull into Ames 20 minutes before game time you should be golden.

    There is free parking in the lots kind of close to the Jack. There will be a ton of signs directing you to the free parking. Also I'd say about 6:30 so you won't miss any of the cool pre-game stuff.

    Re: Game time

    Thanks all. I show up very early for football games and was wondering for the BB. My wife will run late, so I am going to tell her we need to be an hour early. lol

    Re: Game time

    park in the mwl lot. it's much closer to hilton than the free lots. also you won't have to deal with any traffic.

    Why not just park right in front of Stephens? That's free and closer yet.

    Ohhh there... I thought you were talking about parking on the North side of Stephens in what appears to be Lot B1. You get no traffic when leaving mwl lots. As I recall it gets a little congested over by A1 after games.

    The parking authority has somewhat caught on to people parking and walking over to Hilton. Just forewarning you guys, I have a friend who works for them and that they'll be out tonight handing out tickets if you park in MWL and walk over.

    Besides, you might get hit by a truck.
