2023 BlazerTalk Tailgating FAQs
Due to an unforeseen change in circumstances there will be some differences this season. Blazerwkr has chosen not to participate with us this season. As such, tailgates will be much more loosely organized without a primary grillmaster.

• Where is the BlazerTalk Tailgate located for 2023?
We will be in the same location as last year, the northeast corner of the Gold Tailgate lot, overlooking Uptown and the south endzone of Protective Stadium. The lot is on the top (6th) floor of the Parking Deck behind the Westin Hotel, adjacent to Uptown.

• I have food and/or supplies to bring, how do I get them up to you?
There are banks of elevators on the east and west sides of the parking deck

• What items are prohibited in UAB tailgating lots?
Charcoal Grills, glass bottles, loud sound systems and pets are prohibited.

• What time do tailgates start?
The tailgate lot opens 6 hours before kick-off for Saturday home games, 4 hours before kick-off for the Thursday home game.

• What time can we expect to eat?
This can vary from game to game, but we generally eat immediately after BlazerWalk (2 hours prior to kick-off).

• How far is the walk from the tailgate to Protective Stadium?
The South Gate of Protective Stadium is a short two block walk from the gold tailgate lot.

• How long can I hang out after the game?
The tailgate lots close 90 minutes after the conclusion of each game.

• Are there any other rules or guidelines for the BlazerTalk tailgate?
Only a few. 1) No talking politics, everyone has their own opinion, and it only leads to arguments. 2) We are a pretty laid-back group, except when it comes to losing, so relax and try to have fun!

• Must I bring food to participate?
While we would prefer that you add to the bounty that abounds at the BlazerTalk tailgates, you certainly are not required to. We do ask that those who choose or are unable to bring food or drink donate $10 per person towards the season’s expenses.

• How do I sign up to bring something / how do I know what to bring?
A tailgating thread will be posted on the main message board in advance of each tailgate, usually a week in advance. We do ask that if you do commit to food, please arrive no later than 15 minutes before the posted meal times.

• Will there be alcoholic beverages?
Generally we are BYOB. If you would like to partake, feel free to bring what you like plus a little extra.

• Do I have to be a member of the Message Board at BlazerTalk to participate?
While we would prefer that everyone join in the conversation at BlazerTalk, that is most definitely not a requirement for joining us for an enjoyable day at the stadium.

• Do I have to sign up or RSVP to reserve a spot at the tailgate?
While not required, it is certainly appreciated to help gauge food and supplies for the day.

• What do I need to bring?
In addition to any food and/or beverage that you have signed up for, you should bring enough seating for your party.

• Are donations accepted/How do I pay you?
Most definitely! Cash is always best, but we do have a Venmo that you can send money to electronically (message blazerjay for the link).

• Where can I keep up with and/or contact the Tailgating crew on game days?
