Gameday parking changes for this weekend


October 21, 2009

Weather conditions have improved in Starkville, but rain is in the forecast for late this week and the Bulldogs prepare to host top-ranked Florida on Saturday. Due to previous damage caused by heavy rains in September and early-October, there will be some minor changes to parking policies on campus for this weekend's game.



Bulldog Club Reserved Parking Lots



ALL TRAILERS AND/OR SMOKERS ARE PROHIBITED FROM GRASS PARKING LOTS AND PICNIC AREAS FOR THIS WEEKEND'S GAME.



Bulldog Club reserved Lot 27 will be relocated to sorority row as in previous weeks.



The southern-most area of Bulldog Club reserved Lot 7 will be closed. Available space in Lot 7 will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis and any additional cars will be directed to Lot 23, east of Allen Hall.



Bulldog Club members with reserved passes in the affected lots may also proceed to any available gameday only pay lot and will be admitted by showing their reserved parking pass, which will be punched for Game 5.
