I can't make it this year, but I wanted to let everyone know I talked to the Director of Operations at FC Dallas Stadium. They have revamped their policies and he sounds pretty firm in his decisions. They have a no golf cart policy and they are not pre-selling lots this year. He did say that all lots will open at the same time, which is different than the staggered approach they've used before. For everyone to park together, it probably means deciding on a lot and planning to get there at the same time to line up before the gates open. He did say he would let me know if anything changes, and I'll pass on any information I get from him.
It was a pleasure and a hell of an evening
Truly was our night to win
But the authorities insist on my leaving
Take care my American friend

nothing was posted on ticketmaster earlier about parking. We never had the option before... People just paid at the entarance to the parking lot you wanted into.

At Jones Beach you pay when you enter the lot. What people usually do is have a few folks arrive early. Cordon off some extra space. But then again, it's a beach parking lot so you could get there before sunrise.

For Great Woods (MA) they would meet up at an agreed spot and caravan over to the venue when it opened.

There is VIP parking for both venues but I don't know anyone who bothers with it.

yes, everywhere we've been, you pay at the gate. But this is sounding crazy.... you can buy for a day, two days, then there is RV stuff. I've never had to deal with such nonsense. :lol:

We will be there already so we will meet up someplace. I don't think anything has been planned but we will get together. The problem will be for those already in the lots it will have to be within walking distance cuz there is no in and out of the lot! Grrrrrr...

Also, a police officer got hit by one. That may have something to do with it.

I did book a hotel room from Friday to Sunday, but if history is any indication, he'll be playing in Tampa the previous weekend (he's played there that same weekend since 2008). If that's the case this year, I'll have to flip a coin.
