Subject: Football Parking

Received my renewal for season tickets and like last year "due to the construction of the parking garage, parking for the 2005 season will be extremely limited" (according to the accompanying letter from Ticket Operations). Is this accurate, I had thought it was once again deferred? Hopefully, I am wrong and they did not just change the date and copy last year's letter.

Did they provide any details on how that limited parking will be allocated? I would hope it goes to members of the Maroon and Gridiron Clubs, season ticket holders, player parents, etc. instead of on a first-come basis. Also, I'm assuming (because I think I read it somewhere) that they will be working with the Gardens to use their parking facilities on game days. If not, I hope they start working on this ASAP. Does anyone know about what bus trips are planned for the away games? (NT)DamnRam10:44:25 05/10/05 Tue

Letter is basically same gibberish as last year i.e., encouraging people to take mass transmit with no mention of any attempt to procure additional parking. Zero effort in the letter to actually encourage people to attend, Letter says parking passes available (for $35) on a first come basis. No mention if you need a pass to park on campus. IMO, this lack of attention is all too typical of the approach given to athletics by the administration. (NT)Jimbo6512:45:26 05/10/05 Tue

Somehow I inadvertantly posted two versions of my message. I think what happened was that I had to reduce the original message to 600 characters and somehow released two versions. Good thing I'm not arranging the parking for the games. (NT)Jimbo6512:59:20 05/10/05 Tue

Garage project to start this May, following commencement. Should be completed by August 2006 (NT)FC10:41:57 05/11/05 Wed

I dont believe we were criticizing the change but rather the way change was managed, or more specifically, not managed. The new parking & field are necessary changes. That said, why not try to arrange temporary parking i.e., zoo, gardens, Metro No. Gardens Lot etc. If these avenues were tried without success, then say so in the mailing. Hopefully, the administration provided a warning to the visiting schools that can be passed on to their fans. (NT)Jimbo6512:36:50 05/11/05 Wed

PA RAM, garage project has been in the planning process for a number years. Will be in H lot. Will be a 5 level facility for at least 1250 cars (per my last read). Lot A use still not determined (New Science Bldg?) Baseball will remain on Coffey along with FB and now Soccer. Coffey field work to be completed by August 05 (NT)FC17:01:14 05/11/05 Wed
