    UNLV Pregame plans

    We're trying to decide what to do for pregame festivities at the UNLV game, especially since the deadline to register for the Cyclone Club/ISUAA tailgate is Monday.

    Vegas 2008 Football Tailgate

    That sounds like it could be a good time, but I'm wondering what everyone else is planning to do. Maybe a member of the mod squad could make this into a poll?

    I'm thinking the options are:

    NCC/ISUAA tailgate
    Renting/borrowing/stealing/winning a car and tailgating
    Taking a bus/cab and latching onto someone else's tailgate
    Gambling until the last minute and heading straight into the game

    Any other thoughts? Either way, I'm looking forward to having a great time with fellow Cyclone fanatics!

    Poll added.

    A couple of other members of the site and we have rented a car. We're planning on tailgating for a bit before the game, but it's going to be freakishly hot out there in the sun, so won't be out there for too long. I'll be getting my fill of the sun poolside the next day at a cabana.

    That's a good point about the heat... I think that's part of the reason kickoff isn't until 8:00 local time.

    You mean 6 p.m. Vegas and 8 p.m. in Iowa right?


    42-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    I guess so. For some reason I thought it was 8 pm Vegas but I just double checked the schedule and it's 8 pm Iowa. Boy would my face have been red walking into the stadium 2 hours late!

    Re: UNLV Pregame plans

    Just decided we're going the NCC/ISUAA tailgate. It will be easier than messing around with tailgating supplies (hopefully they don't run out of beer), and a good way to spend time with other Cyclones before the game. Now as to how we will get out there... doesn't sound like a cab is the best idea since it will be hard to get back afterwards. Someone posted the bus schedule in another thread, we may look into that.

    Re: UNLV Pregame plans

    Really looking forward to Vegas-that Allegiant flight out on Thursday afternoon is going to be an ISU pep rally in itself.

    Saturday we will hang at the Cyclone Club tailgate before the game.

    We're still trying to figure out how to get back to the strip after the game. Anybody have any secrets they want to share?

    Rental cars are actually pretty cheap over the weekend.

    Yeah, we got a Chrysler 300 for only about $60 or so (I don't remember the exact amount).
