    Tailgating???

    Ok I am sure that some where questions like these have been answered I just don't have time to look for them.
    What time is everyone going to get in line for the Student lots this weekend? My friends are bringing down a party bus (all fanatcs welcome) what time do you think they need to get in line to get a bus in the lot? Lastly, the grass are still business as usual and opening 6 hours before kickoff correct?

    Re: Tailgating???

    two years ago they said it would open 6 hours ahead of time but after hundreds of cars started blocking S 16th St (from the grass lots across from vet med where they made everyone wait) they let us in at about 3 AM. There were girls already drunk as we were setting up the RV.

    Re: Tailgating???

    In the past, meaning the past 3-4 Iowa vs ISU games in Ames, they have opened the lots around 3am. Cars started to line up in the lots as early as 5pm on Friday night. However, one thing that is different is this years game is at 5pm compared to 11am starts for all other ISU vs IA games.

    Also, all non-donor lots open at 7am. Unless you park up top in Vet Med.

    I thought the policy was donor lots opening up at 7am and non-donor lots opening up at 11am. Do you have different information from ISU?

    We're not about to show up at 2 AM to get in line. We'll probably be in line by 8 AM or so.

    We are in G6 ... also planning on getting there at 8. I doubt the donor lots will fill up right away. I'm assuming 10 am will be a different story tho..

    Re: Tailgating???

    We're considering pulling up around 9 or 10 Friday night, haven't decided yet. If we don't do that I imagine we'll be there by 6 or 7 am to start the party.

    Re: Tailgating???

    It may have changed,but it used to be 7 am or 6 hours before kick. Whichever is earliest. I know that was the case a few seasons ago.

    Re: Tailgating???

    I believe the OP is speaking about the non-donor/student lots. Eeesh. 8AM? I'm guessing us trying to roll in at 10:30 isn't going to cut it to be able to park there.

    RV Donor lots open at 8AM Friday until midnight and then 7AM the next day. Donor car lots open at 7AM or 6 hours prior to kickoff whichever is earlier. Public lots open 6 hours before kickoff.

    Re: Tailgating???

    It will be interesting to see how they handle it this year with the 5pm kickoff. In the past they line everyone up in G4 and G5 the night before and start filling the lot around 3 or 4am so they don't have to fight the early morning traffic when they move everyone. People start lining up for that as early as Friday afternoon and by 9pm it is pretty impressive how many are in line. I can't imagine they will wait till the last minute to start filling up the student lot with all the additional traffic coming into town. I think if you roll in Saturday morning you will be getting into the student lot, you'll likely be in one of the other grass lots or Vet Med at that point.

    Re: Tailgating???

    I guess my understanding is that all lots open 6hrs before kick off or 8am. Which ever is earlier. I may be wrong though. I will be heading up Friday night.

    Sorry I meant to type 7am, but my fat fingers on a phone doesn't work the best.

    Make sense that this is only donor lots.
