    Finkbine Tailgate Parking Lot?

    Does the Finkbine Golf Course Lot actually ever fill up? If it does, do you have a good guess what time it will this Saturday?

    I usually park downtown and hit the bars pre-game but am planning to tailgate this week. Am hoping to arrive about 9:30.

    9:30 should have no issues. Probably could find a place off Golfview that has parking by my spot

    I'd guess the lot is full by 11:30 or 12 Saturday. Some will stay away due to the heat I'm sure.

    I agree. I think the heat is really going to temper some of the tailgating. Thank god the RV has a totes choice AC unit.

    I've parked there for years, typically arriving an hour before kick off and it had only been full once. 0930 is grampa time early do you will be a o k.

    I've never parked near Finkbine. Did the new golf complex change anything with parking?

    Nice. I'm jelly as I just have a '13 Dodge Ram with the Rambox stuffed full of food, beer and ice. While it works pretty good, a RV is where it is at!

    Love the rig, looks like it serves great purpose, with sat dish too. But really love the choice tailgate spot, in the shade under tree, next to soft grass, trash recepticle nearby, grillready, and quiet with no fellow tailgaters or friends overcrowding party of one.

    I can't remember what game this was but I think it was a 2:30 kickoff and I took this picture around 7:30 in the morning. There wasn't much going on yet. I'm pretty sure half the crew was still snoozing.
