    Default New Parking Sections at the Tigue

    During the game last night, while getting a few beers to drown my sorrows over our poor performance, I heard mixed comments about the new parking arrangements at the Tigue. Nearly every comment I heard was extremely negative. One general admissions fan stating that he had to park in Scott.

    Personally, I like the idea of reserved sections but, the logistics are seriously messed up. The A section is nearly empty, B section is in the same location for football which is a fair walk from the stadium and general admission parking really is near Scott.

    What are your thoughts?

    They definitely had lot B last year, pretty much the same setup is this year. Not sure about lot A but it sure looks like the same setup as last year to me

    Lot A was a construction zone last year. It is new this year. Others were the same.

    This year's Founders was called Lot A last year.

    It was bad due to soccer going on. It'll be better the other weekends.

    Gotcha. That makes sense. So same general setup but lots have changed slightly

    We were wondering about that, since that crowd was louder than the Tigue, lol. I looked at the ul schedule, but didn't see anything. Is it a high school thing going on this weekend?

    I understand the cost of progress.... Still some of the charm of going to baseball is being taken away. We used to tailgate every Sunday. Now we have to do so in the gravel. Nonetheless I support the idea of charging more for progress. With the open space I wonder if it would be possible to designate some areas for tailgaiting like football. Certainly don't need as many but I'm willing to pay for a tailgait spot.

    We also (did) tailgate many Saturdays and Sundays for baseball. $5k to park in the grass is absurd! That lot was maybe 10% of capasity. Meanwhile, we've got to go to "Scott" to grill and throw the ball (no interest in doing that on asphalt or crushed limestone)

    I welcome success and the increased revenue it brings. The university/RCAF needs to revisit the supply and demand curves (much like basketball concessions).
    Perhaps $5k will be the right number in 10 years, but it's way wrong today! Lower the cost and see the total revenue rise. It ain't rocket surgery!

    Can anyone bring an RV to tailgate for baseball if they park in general lots? Is it free?

    We all have a choice to pay for certain levels of support, or not. Right now, I can't spend the extra money to sit in the Club House. The perks are there for those that are willing to pay for them and when the ones I pay for become cost prohibitive, I will no longer pay for them. But in the meantime, I'm not going to complain about the perks I can't pay for today, they are necessary for the growth of the program.

    this is not complicated. I don't disagree with you, or the premise in general. But they missed the target terribly. There is no question. Look at the lot, and look how much they're leaving on the table.
    And as our friend John says, if you disagree with me you're wrong!

    Soccer at the track and field complex made things bad. I parked further away today than I've ever had for a baseball game. I showed up at first pitch though. It was cool. Keep making money. This is a good move.

    At the end of the game, I still made my way through parking lot traffic and shot out to to the exit on a Congress closest to Cajun Dome Blvd, were I was the only one waiting. Probably saved 10 minutes of my life.

    Agree. They really messed up tailgating. In my opinion baseball doesn't need parking passes. This is from someone with a b pass and Loge box suite.

    No they didn't. Look at all the cars outside of the lots A and B. The whole idea is to make them want to park closer and therefore join the RCAF. Which is the real motivation behind reserved lots. They know exactly what they are doing.
