I know one driver of a converted school bus who will not be pleased with the news that tailgaters are now relegated to the outer edge of the parking lot at Texas Stadium. Here’s the policy in a nutshell:
… [W]e will continue to permit tailgating as a festive, fun way to enhance the game day experience. In order to ensure our parking lots are used in an efficient manner, we will be requiring our tailgating patrons to limit activity to designated areas; when those areas are full on a first come, first serve basis tailgating will not be permitted in other areas of the lot.
Cowboys spokesperson Rich Dalrymple told the DMN tailgaters at the Houston Texans game were receptive and accommodating to the new policy:
“When they learn it’s a safety issue and for the traffic flow and to make everyone’s experience better, they are supportive and say, ‘We’ll make it work,'” Mr. Dalrymple said.
Hmm. They musta asked the non-drinking tailgaters first.
