ECU logistics
I saw a little info that's buried amongst a lot of smack in another thread about logistics, so starting a separate one here. Hopefully some Pirate fans can chime in here too.

Planning on bringing the family to ECU which surprisingly will be my/our first JMU road game.

Any tips on hotels and locations to avoid?

ECU Sports lists this for general parking:

LIMITED GENERAL PUBLIC PARKING
Parking for football fans without reserved parking passes will be available in the Carol Belk Building lot along Charles Boulevard ($20 per vehicle) and in the gravel lots along 14th Street ($20 per vehicle). Parking is limited and lots will open six hours prior to kick-off for weekend games (8:00 a.m. for kick-offs earlier than 2:00 p.m.), and 4:00 p.m. for weeknight games. Spaces will be first-come, first-served. Access to the lots along 14th Street will be shut down four (4) hours prior to kick-off.

Where are the good guys aiming to tailgate?

RE: ECU logistics
Subject to change, but hoping to pull 3 of us into the 14th St. lot shortly after noon.

Side note, wondering aloud if JMU fans should make a point to wear white to the game. One, it will distinguish/differentiate our section and fans spread out through the stadium from the "other" purple folks...two, even at a 6pm kickoff it will likely be a very hot day so light-colored clothing should help...three, I assume the Good Guys will be wearing white that game. Just a thought...

Side note #2...on September 2nd last year in Greenville NC, they had 10 inches of rain. Not 1. Not 2. Not 4 or 5. But, 10!!! Tropical Storm Hermine dumped a load of rain on the eastern coast around Labor Day weekend last year. Let's hope we don't get anything like that this year, but is always a risk that time of year.

This actually may be a bit better parking map FWIW...http://www.ecu.edu/cs-admin/news/upload/parkingmaplarge.pdf

The Hokies have been going down there for years for games (and I believe are scheduled again this season). I don't know if they have any suggestions/recommendations.

RE: ECU logistics
Just remember, Greenville, NC is not Harrisonburg. While the ECU campus is nice, Greenville not so much. There's sections of town you need to stay clear of.

RE: ECU logistics
Quick search shows not many hotel rooms left in Greenville anyway. If we can't work this into a beach trip, might need to look at Wilson or Washington for hotels.

And wearing white is my thought as well assuming ECU doesn't turn this into a white-out.

I wonder if a possible option for later arrivals if that Belk lot is full is there apparently is a lot from a closed K-Mart that looks to between the Belk Building and the Greenville Mall, right behind the Belk Building Zone 3 on the above map, just off the map. The ECU sports website now doesn't mention it, but from parking info for ECU's last home last season it was mentioned as one of several possibilities not run by ECU or the city where people could pay to park at. Google says Belk Building .7 mile walk to the stadium, K-mart lot .8 mile.
