I am driving up to the game now from Pittsburgh. Has there been a ton of rain in Ann Arbor this week? I see it is supposed to rain most of the day today, and chance of rain on Saturday morning as well. Has anyone heard if the golf course will be open? If not - what is the next best place to tail-gate?
Any word on the golf course yet?
MGoBlue.com has nothing on it being closed, but it says on the site:
"Please call the Event Management Office at (734) 647-9760 with problems or concerns about parking operations"
So you can call them, if anyone knows they're the ones to know.
Here's another question on golf course parking, do they still not allow vehicles to wait in line on the street before it opens?
Should be open. Hopefully.
I called yesterday and they said to call back today. When I called just now, they said that they won't know until early tomorrow morning. They said to check MGoBlue and WTKA at 6:00 am tomorrow.
Perhaps our resident MGoWeatherPerson could weigh in on the rain situation for next 18 hrs.
Also, what have been people's experience with Park 'n Party at AAGO? Do they just reserve you a spot anywhere there, or can you choose a specific place where you want to park?
I talked with Bryan at the golf course and he said Park n Party reservations must enter through gate two, and are gnereally in one section toward the back...His advice to me was to get there early (obvi) and try to get in through gate 1 if you want to be closer to the stadium.
It should be like the game last week with the constant drizzling and such. The gold course was open then so I am assuming it will be open.
Do they allow you to park in the grass next to pioneer regardless of rain? The grass along stadium and main. I have a group that i am meeting there and I was just curious if anyone has any info?
If it is on Ann Arbor Public Schools property, typically they will make the determination as to where people may or may not park at Pioneer if there are weather concerns. The comprehensive rules are here - http://www.michiganeventparking.com/rules.php
For this game they are not closing unless they absolutely have to
Im my experience with it not raining that bad and only a slight chance of rain tomorrow both courses will be open
For less and open for more... If I put my money on it I would say open... But let's see if they get a fart side-ways
I'm actually a little surprised the GC was open last weekend, because it rained pretty damn good at the tailgate. In any event, as others have said, this is one game that they really DON'T want to close up for.
Hi guys, sorry to hijack this thread, but can't post my own topics I don't think.
Does anyone know a good place in Boston to watch the game? A Michigan bar would be best, but I'll settle on anything that would be airing the game in HD.
Of all the weekends I get dragged away from Michigan...
Thanks for the advice in advance!
