    Tailgating Parking Strategy/ protocol

    So, I got my first donor lot parking pass this year. Are there any unwritten rules of parking in the paved lots? If i get there early in the day (1 pm on Thursday) do I have to be worried about making someone mad by parking in their "spot"?

    Whats the best place to park in the lots? Near the entrances? Along the ravines? In the middle of the lots?


    Thanks, Thursday can't get here soon enough.

    Re: Tailgating Parking Strategy/ protocol

    The paved lots are pretty civil...outside of the IA game and Husker game in which there seems to be a huge number of their fans that make it odd.

    Games like Thurs should be all Clone...but more than likely...late arriving. If you have a tent...it needs to be along the grass area's. You can be in the middle of the lot and put yours up.

    Access is great into the stadium...if you want to get out of the lot in good time, park near the exit...should be able to get right out, even in heavy traffic times.

    In our lot there are two groups that are always there when the lots open, we both park in the corners farthest from the entrance. Our group likes the corner because there is no parking to one side of us and that is where we set up the tent/games/coolers.

    Lots of people think they have their own spots, my group included. But I say if you get there first its yours. That's why we get there super early.

    Turn down your music.
    Park where you want but just take up one space.
    Don't leave a mess.
    Always have a spare 12pk.

    The only important rule is, don't park in my spot.

    Bring us a pitcher of beer every seven minutes until somebody passes out. And then bring one every ten minutes.
