Now try and put several tents together touching each other and then try to park cars in those spaces. It's just not happening. That's why a lot of us just paid te 45 extra to park out of the way.

We had to fight to get tailgate spaces because our AD believed we should tailgate where we park in much smaller spaces. When we had someone convince him we needed a separate tailgate area so groups could tailgate together, they made the spaces too small and he had to be convinced the spaces needed to be larger.

Then he mandated that The tailgate spots would go on the priority point system instead of the way they were done before. He was again told that the whole reason we wanted a separate tailgate area it was so groups could tailgate together and the point system made it more difficult to put people together. He did not care and that is the way it was going to be done. Thankfully we still have some in the athletic department look out for us and was able to put many of us together

We had to use some leverage for our tailgating group as well. FYI I have spot 106, but I'll be tailgating with The Greenbackers.

I spoke to the ticket office and I have 103-106 and that they had checked and they had not doubled up on the space, but yours was likely spot 108.

It'd be nice if they didn't send me a parking pass with 106 on it then. Calling them to sort it out now.

Never mind. I have a regular parking pass, not a tailgating one, which is fine.

The Blazer Game Day twitter account said today the student tailgate spots are 20 x 30. Not sure if that's the same dimensions for the regular spots or not.

RE: BT Tailgate parking spots
It's not the same. The student tailgate spots are a lot bigger for some reason (Good for them) and on the opposite end of the stadium from everyone else tailgating. (yes, makes no sense).

The reserved tailgating spots are 20 x 10 and we had to fight to get that. They were the same size as a parking space then they made it 20 x 9 and we reminded them that a tent is generally 10' wide then it went to 20 x 10.

The general public is supposed to tailgate in their parking spot and not supposedly allowed to be out of their space. Good luck with that and if enforced could cause some ill feelings. Yes we were all expected to tailgate in our own spots and our AD never thought people would tailgate in groups. I'm not even joking.

Something that should be so simple should not be made that difficult.
