    The Ames Tribune has this article on thier website. There is a line in the article that says:

    "Tailgating before the game in parking lots around Jack Trice Stadium is restricted to beginning no sooner than six hours before game-time." Does this mean donor lots too?? I was planning on going at noon.

    I was planning on being in the lot at noon as well. That would be a bummer.

    Have they ever once inforced the hours of tailgating rules? For the Iowa game, people start lining up at 2am blocking the street and they just let them in.

    When do the parking lots open?
    Cyclone Club lots for cars open at 7 a.m. or 6 hours prior to kickoff, whichever is earlier, overnight parking is not permitted for cars. Cyclone Club lots for RVs open at 8 a.m. on the day before the game, and overnight parking is permitted. Public lots for cars and RVs open 6 hours prior to kickoff on gameday. Overnight parking is available for RVs only on a limited basis at Vet Med Lot 93, starting at 5:30pm the night before the game.

    Emailing Pollard is probably your best bet.

    I could see the 7am thing changes for "safety". Be interesting if this includes the donor lots. Thinking NO because nothing on Cyclones.com.

    Yeah, there's no way they dont open the public lots early for this game, unless they want to end up with a massive traffic line of those who will for sure show up earlier.

    With 50k+ attendance routine now, maybe its time to just have 7am\6 hours before be standard for all lots, not just the donor lots.

    So 1 PM it is for Cyclone Club members? I'm confused on the "whichever is earlier"

    6 hours before kickoff is 1pm. 7am is earlier than 1pm. Lots open at 7am.

    I believe the only time it isn't 7AM would be for a 11AM kickoff ie. lots open at 5AM

    Am I correct?

    What I figured they meant, had a brain fart. It will be interesting to see how many people show up early with the heat!

    So are we allowed to bring unopened water bottles into the game or is that just at Kinnick?

    Correct because 5 a.m. would be 6 hours before kickoff, which comes before 7 a.m., hence the policy stating 7 a.m. or 6 hours prior to kickoff, whichever is earlier.

    You've always been allowed to bring in unopened water bottles.
