    I keep thinking now that they have their parking garage, St. Thomas Aquinas should charge people to park there on the morning games since they would be gone by Mass time.

    Was this 2009? It rained all night and most of the morning. If it weren't for that rain i wouldn't own the tent I bought that morning. Wasnt going to let some rain ruin a bachelor party. We made it into the grass lot south of The Jack before it was closed.

    Park on campus. All of the reserved (red) and gen staff (yellow) lots are open on weekends. Metered spaces in those lots are 24/7 and you can't load up the meters, so if you park in those you'll get a ticket.

    North the lots weren't in too bad of shape yesterday as they didn't get a lot of use on Tuesday.
    Wow, I guess I got lucky, I usually park on the South side but for no particular reason I went North this year.

    I was always told by my father if there's grass on the field, play ball... If there's no grass, play in the mud..

    If G7 ends up closed, what happens? Do we just have to fend for ourselves?

    Re: JP tweet re:grass lots Sat

    G6 should be fine, technically gravel. G7 if closed I believe they usually take a portion of the public parking by Hilton and use that as the alternate G7 donor spaces. Not the same, but will keep you closer than where'd you be otherwise.

    Why couldn't they at the very least put G7 in Vet Med. Sure, its not near as close, but its something.

    Beacuse 'its not near as close' would be my guess. I could be wrong, but in the past I believe this is what happened.
