Auburn University Modifies Game Day Plan For The Auburn-Alabama WeekSwitch to Thanksgiving week requires adjustment to plan.
Nov. 13, 2007
With the Iron Bowl moving to the Thanksgiving week, Auburn University has modified its game day plan in the interest of campus security and safety. The university will close the core of campus-the area bound by Samford Ave., Wire Rd., Magnolia Ave., and College St.-from 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 20, through 6 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 23.
Auburn and Alabama will kick off at Jordan-Hare Stadium at 7 p.m. (CT) on Saturday, Nov. 24.
Other changes for Iron Bowl week include:
-No tailgate sites may be reserved in any manner until 6 a.m. Friday, Nov. 23. Individuals and groups will not be permitted to loiter or sit on campus to reserve a preferred site until this time. Tape, rope, chairs, small tents and any other site markings placed prior to Friday will be removed.
-RV early arrival time on campus will remain Wednesday, Nov. 21, at 4 p.m. Arrival will be regulated, and RV parking will be limited exclusively to the hayfields along South Donahue Dr. and Woodfield Dr.
-The City of Auburn is offering free, paved parking for RVs arriving Monday, Nov. 19, and Tuesday, Nov. 20. The parking lot, which will open at 8 a.m. and stay open through the week, is located at Duck Samford Park. The lot is accessed off Airport Rd., just north of Glenn Ave. There are no hook ups or public restroom facilities available.
I need you guys to take a look at the Sump’em Good website and check out the catering page (assuming we are still going to do this) and post some recommendations about what we want to eat for the Iron Bowl tailgate. Then let me know how many of you want to do this so I have a rough estimate to give them. BUT AT LEAST, I need to know what most of you want to eat so I can call and set this shit up. After that, I will let you all know how much we are looking at so we can get final figures on the number of people who are eating and make arrangements to pay my ass back (i’m poor and living off student loans)
SO, if you would all take a few minutes and do that, we can get this thing set up so we are fed and ready to kick some Alabama ass.
