Has anyone heard that you can't get into parking lot without holding a ticket to the show? Sounded bogus but not totally sure....

That seems to be the case and the lots are not opening until 1pm

Holy smokes! I called the Amphitheatre today and was told RVs will be no more than $40. I guess they finally decided to start sticking it to the tailgaters. What a joke. We'll be there, in the RV - waiting in line, no later than 11:30 am. Here's to hoping they let us in. ...and here's to hoping I can negotiate my way down to $40 if they try to rip us off at the gate for showing up before 4 pm. Argh, I blame Mid Florida Credit Union. 1-800-ASK-GARY would've never done that :wink:

See everyone tomorrow. And enjoy the show! Fingers crossed for "He Went to Paris." 21 shows and counting and I've still never heard him play it!

Ah ha! I'm running late to that other event. No the grass skirts aren't for Buffett. But, I enjoy walking, which is why I want to park on the far side of the lot!!!

We are planning to meet up at the Laquinta poolside in the morning and then relaxing until the gates open. No need to rush in line, once it opens we will head across. Our tailgating spot will move slightly this year as it appears our normal spot is roped off.

Tampa, you did it again! The 1pm gate restriction turned out to be unenforceable for many of the attendees. Adrian pulled of another great tailgating experience featuring a wonderful set by John Frinzi. The Tampa Bay PHC also had a fantastic party under the trees with Steve Toliver and the Trop Rock Junkies. We enjoyed many wonderful moments with our PH friends all day. The show was excellent. Jimmy looked great and the band was hot. Thank you Tampa!

That was the case last year.
We were waved in by fairgrounds employees at the last entrance from 301 before MLK. There was nobody collecting money for parking at 5:00. It was 3/4 of a mile from the gate, but it was a quick out onto 301 using the same exit/entrance.

I survived my first Tampa show and must say it was Awesome! I met some amazingly great people and had one of my best shows yet. Still can't believe i saw John Frinzi play at a tailgate party. Thanks to all who made this show so awesome.
