Email from State of TX- 2017 tailgating...F!

Postby dahorns on Thu Apr 13, 2017 8:26 am

Drew did you receive the emil yesterday?


Looks like in addition to the UT lots that will not be available for home game tailgates down theroad due to new Basleketball arena..State of Texas with the ongoing capitol complex constructions is taking out not only Lot 7 (across of Bob Bullock State History Museum) and Lot 2 (south of Wm B Travis Bldg.)... they are taking portions of Lot 3 (south of SFA bldng) and up to 1/2 Lot 12 (western half alog San Jac MLK Blvds. & 18th St)

No idea how may tailgates will be displaced, probably 80-100, for sure 1000s of tailgaters (especially for home games vs big apponents)....

tailgates from those 4 lots will be placed into a drawing for spaces left in Lots 3 and 12 plus smaller lots (used to be 1st come-1st served) Lots 8 & 11....

been tailgating in State Lots since 1994... 24th season of tailgating in jeopardy....

progress sux, sometimes...

Yeah, we got it.

17 years here.

Even if we happen to get a spot in another lot it won't be the same.

Knew this was coming soon but I really thought we had at least a couple more seasons left.

yep, same here.
I had been told in the past that the staging lots would be other ones (i.e., not Lots 3, 12) such as open areas/space around exisitng buildings
That's why we moved from lot 7 to lot 3 a couple yeas ago...

oh well... can't stop progress...

hopefully our tailgate gets lucky, if not we'll have to look at LBJ or Disch lots through LHF, I guess

I am curious where the state employees are going to park who are usually in Lot 12.
I start a new job on May 1st at the Railroad Commission and will be parking in Garage R.

Yes, I imagine it will be a big difference from the Health and Human Services employees I'm used to dealing with, every group has their owm kind of crazy.
