Poll: Pioneer or Golf Course for Tailgating?

Submitted by Seth on September 20th, 2010 at 8:02 AM

Simple question: which tailgating area do you prefer? The Pioneer lot, where you gotta hide your beers, or the Golf Course, where you can't get in 'till 8 and gotta line up for a spot? Pick just one of these two. Comments appreciated.

The golf course in a landslide.  It seems there is more room and as was stated earlier, the party atmosphere is light years ahead of the pioneer crowd.

This past Saturday we decided to park at Pioneer and found that they raised their price once again (from $30 to $35). The golf course has WAY  more room and a MUCH better ground to setup on. Not only does Pioneer pack you in, the ground was so muddy in spots that some tailgaters had to pack up after it rained. I will never park at Pioneer again.

I think the scenery on the golf course makes it a much better place to tailgate. The whole being on a golf course with 20000 people does it for me.

Was at the UConn game as well..heard several times that (maybe not for 2010 season) they will be paving the grass lot, that's why it is dirt/rocks. If you noticed all the sewers & manholes, I believe there is a good chance it will become another blacktop heat magnet for the early season games, but can probably get plowed in the Nov games (if it snows)..
