    Parking question

    Once I enter the "donation lots", can I leave and come back? Traffic aside. I may have to pick someone up a little after I want to start tailgating. Wondering if I should park somewhere else before picking them up and then go into my parking spot.

    Re: Parking question

    Nope. Says on the parking pass info that there's no leave/re-entry.

    I did see that this year's passes don't have the tear off tab on the bottom like last year. No bar code to scan either, so I don't know how they keep track of how often a pass is used in one game. OH, I guess there IS a tear-off tab. Never mind.

    If you need to get someone fairly early (before 3?) you shouldn't have a problem finding a decent space when you do enter the lots.

    No. You are stuck.

    3:30 for today's game should be just fine for that lot. Don't blame me if I'm wrong tho. Just an educated guess from previous years.

    Oh you'll be getting all the blame. (first time i think i have used that maybe second) Class just gets in the way of everything, what teacher gives out homework and takes attendance during gameday?

    Re: Parking question

    We were able to leave the "S" lot last year and come back once or twice when we forgot something. It was within an hour after the lots opened so that may have made a difference.

    Best thing to do is ask the parking attendant before you enter. Be sure to get their name if they do say yes.

    Re: Parking question

    Thanks all. I think I'll just wait and get there a little later than I hoped.

    Agree with this. We showed up at the student lots for SDSU at around Noon last year and got right in. The crowd at the front started showing up around 1:00 or 2:00 but there was still plenty of space let south of the creek at 3:00.

    Which lot is your parking pass in? Maybe some of us could take a few things and camp out 'til you get there. Of course, there would be an administrative fee to be worked out. And you'd have to prove who you are.

    Thanks but we don't tailgate where we park anyway. We go to the RV lots so not real worried about getting a good spot.
