RV parking for UTL2 question

RV parking for UTL2 question

Submitted by Bleedin9Blue on August 26th, 2013 at 7:29 PM

So... I'm going to UTL2 after being forced to miss UTL1*.  For normal games, my family parks just south of the Kroger on industrial.  But, for Notre Dame my brother-in-law and I are planning on borrowing an RV to tailgate properly.  And, to tailgate properly, we're planning on going to either the Golf Course or Pioneer.

 

My question for those on the board more experienced with RV tailgating is: do I need to buy an RV pass for either the Golf Course or Pioneer, or can I just drive the RV to either location sufficiently early and expect to get in?

 

Unfortunately, online I can only find season RV passes for either the Golf Course or Pioneer - I cannot find a single game pass for either location.  Thus, if I must buy a pass and cannot find one on Stubhub, am I already too late to acquire one?

 

Or, if I can just drive up, what time would the MGoBoard recommend I show up?

 

Essentially, any information you can give me would be greatly appreciated.  As you can guess, I've never personally tailgated at Michigan with an RV so I don't know all the ins-and-outs.  Therefore, any tips would be greatly appreciated.

 

*I was the best man in a wedding... in Ohio... and all her family were Buckeyes.  Still, I got to see the 4th quarter live so I can't complain too much.

Tailgating at the Golf Course

Tailgating at the Golf Course

Hey all--

been a big fan of the site for a few years, but this is my 1st post (hence diary, and not MgoBoard).  With ND and Jimmah coming to town, I wanted to see what the tailgate experience was for WMU at the golf course. 

If enforced as advertised, the new rules ("For safety and efficiency, vehicles will be directed to specific spaces as they enter the grounds. Group parking at a favorite spot will no longer be allowed") definitely SUCK.  But what Im wondering for this week is:

1. How strict was the "no group parking?"  i.e. did people have to caravan literally back to back so they could get spots together?
2. Did the line into the course actually move any faster?
3. Any other tidbits/advice from last week's tailgaters on the new rules and bending them?
4. On 4th and inches at the 34, will Coach Weis opt for Pizza Hut or Arbys?  The hut has cheese in the crust, but... there's horsey sauce. 

I for one remain very angry and frustrated that the golf course has resorted to this kind of cheapery. But there still must be some creative ways we can circumvent their greed and revel like its 2007.
