What time will they let vehicles in on Thursday? Are they going to rush us into the Venue at 6pm again?

Was there last year and the security was telling us we had to go in at 6pm. So we had to stop partying and enter the concert.

My question is When will the parking lot open? Noon? 3pm?

I think round 3 or so----all you do is when security tells you to go in---or they hand out those flyers sayin the rules---you take the stack from their hand and replace it with a beer-----did this last year and they thanked us

we were there at 4 last year on thursday and 3 on saturday, were never asked once to go inside...I won't go in at 6 only to pay $8 for a beer when I have an entire tailgate full...last year, at least in our area of the lot, security was not a problem.

Every year I look forward to the concert because of the tailgating party and knowing even when you are all phukkkked up you still know all the songs by heart! Also, this year, 2nd row center seats aren't too bad!

Tomorrow is the day!

Seeing Jimmy since 1978!!! 25th Anniversary! Been seeing Jimmy longer than my wife!

Morning everyone!

TOMORROW IS THE DAY! I'm about to head out to Meijers to gather some things. Also, my friend called and we're getting sand today to make our own beach. I'm also getting a mini-inflatable pool and we're gonna fill it with water. Now, how am I gonna get water you ask? Milk juggs full. :lol:

We'll have inflatable palm trees as well, and a grill. So feel free to head on over toward our tailgate. We'll have a red "Party Van" and my red "Buffettmobile". By the way, my dome light just got knocked out the other night so it's hanging. I have a Chandelier now. It's pretty cool. :D

Anyways, I look forward to seeing many of you tomorrow. BEER PONG AT OUR TAILGATE!!! Feel free to come over and join in on a game.

:roll: Hey phriends. I am late getting into the forum, but here I am. I bought my ticket for Thurs. back in May and STILL don't have it in my hands! I have a plane ticket and a hotel reservation, Sheraton O'Hare, and a reservation for Mac MacAnnally at the House of Blues on Friday night, too.
I realize I'm too late for the nametags, but please add me to the OPHICIAL list for Thursday. I will try to remember to bring a Canadian flag, too. I will be looking for you: what can I contribute (has to be light and able to cross borders and get through airport security!!) ? will you let me mooch a beer and a burger?

What time do you anticipate leaving the HI lot for Tweeter? I've got some cell #'s, so I can phone 1st, but I prefer to plan ahead. Ya right, then why am I still looking for tickets?
