Post Students get the ball rolling on moderating tailgating restrictions

Wednesday January 19, 2011

The University’s Student Government Association voted Tuesday to propose changes to the year-old controversial tailgating restrictions affecting North Campus.

The key changes recommended by SGA include allowing tables and tents back into the North Campus area. Tables under four feet in length were already allowed under the new rules, but more substantial tables and tents were prohibited. Even if this proposal is adopted by the University, and there is no guarantee or even a hint that it will be, the following would still be banned in that area:

  • Kegs
  • Generators
  • Televisions
  • Amplified music
  • Grills or cookers of any type
  • Household furniture (folding chairs not included)

Whether due to the number of early kickoffs or the new tailgating rules, North Campus was more or less vacant on game days last fall. It’s debatable whether allowing tables and tents would bring more people back to the area given the remainder of the restrictions, but it would at least allow those who do set up there the option of getting out of the sun.
