Important Information about Tailgate Tickets

Please do not contact the Alumni Association, LoDo’s, Eventbrite, or any of the Colorado Dawg Officers to ask for extra tailgate tickets. CU is giving us NO wiggle room on our 3,000 limit and if you are not already on the waitlist there is no chance of getting a ticket. I appreciate everyone’s stories, but there is nothing we can do.

Due to time constrictions, after today we will not be granting refunds.

We have a few more tickets to release to the waitlist. There are people not responding within their given time frame, so those will be passed down the list. Be sure to keep an eye on your email if you are on the waitlist as there is a three hour limit to snatch up released tickets.

I have yet to hear from several people who purchased multiple tickets under their name. (Example- Bob Smith purchased 4 tickets and just entered his name for all 4 tickets.  This does not include Jane who purchased 6 tickets and entered the name of 5 of her family/friends as well as her own name.) Those of you who have yet to change names on tickets, we are running out of time and you will have to enter a special line where they will check to see your name on a list, which will take extra time for you to get into the event.

Welcome to Colorado, DAWGS!

UGA RED OUT at CU game

In response to CU calling for a blackout during our game  we need to do a Red Out! Just picture it, their whole stadium will be Red and Black!

Also, they hate red because they hate Nebraska with a passion.

Parking

OK, finally I have been able to put some stuff together about parking on the day of the big game!

Basically, there are some options. I recommend the parking downtown option as I am against giving CU any more money than we have to after they decided to pull the 3-Pack stunt. Here are the options: 1) On Campus Parking, 2) Park In Downtown Garages for free and take the bus for a small fee, or 3) Parking at other paid lots such as various hotels in Boulder.

Option 1-

From CU’s Website:   Public On Campus Parking

  • Parking on campus for all stadium events costs $20.
  • *Parking off campus at POD G (with free bus shuttle to the stadium) is available at a reduced price.
  • Parking lots open for football games four hours before kick-off. As you enter campus, attendants and police will direct you. (You must have $20 cash available as you enter.)
  • Campus parking is limited. Please arrive an hour before kickoff to ensure space availability.
  • Allow yourself extra travel time as traffic may be heavy.
  • When a football game ends, 45 minutes of heavy outgoing traffic takes precedence over gaining access to main campus.

 *POD G is apparently just off Colorado Ave and Discovery which is about one mile east of the stadium. I spoke to parking services and they are not certain about this lot due to construction. Keep checking their site as they will post updated information. Using my low tech map you can see where these on-campus spaces (except for POD G) are located: Parking Map.

Option 2- TAKE THE BUS TO CAMPUS AFTER PARKING FOR FREE

From the City of Boulder’s Website:

Transportation options to and from the game include:

  • HOP Shuttle: Park free for Saturday games at downtown Boulder’s 15th and Pearl parking structure or at the Twenty Ninth Street retail district and take the HOP shuttle to the stadium. The HOP arrives at HOP stops throughout the city every 15 to 20 minutes starting at 9 a.m. on Saturdays. After the game, riders can catch the HOP at 16th and Euclid or on Folsom Street between Arapahoe and Canyon. As soon as Colorado Avenue in front of the stadium re-opens, the HOP will resume its normal route through campus. Click here for HOP pricing and schedule. Remember, these buses require exact change. 

Public Garage Parking

  • $1.25 PER HOUR
  • $2.50 PER HOUR – AFTER 4 HOURS
  • Saturdays, Sundays, and City Holidays* Free

◊ Five City of Boulder Garage Locations ◊

  • 11th & Walnut (Randolph Center)
  • 11th & Spruce
  • 15th & Pearl
  • 10th & Walnut (St Julien Hotel)
  • 14th & Walnut (RTD Bus Station)

Other public spaces are not free on Saturdays. For more information on this, please see this website.

Find the HOP Route Map here or on the map that I marked the stops nearest the tailgate field  HOP map.

  • RTD Boulder Buff Shuttle: Park free at RTD’s Table Mesa park-n-Ride and take the RTD Boulder Buff Shuttle to Folsom Field. Shuttles start departing one and a half hours before kick-off and operate every 10 to 20 minutes until kick-off. The shuttle returns to the Table Mesa park-n-Ride at the end of the game, with the last bus leaving 45 minutes after the game ends. The cost is $3.50 for a round-trip fare. Riders must have exact change.
  • RTD BuffRide: Park free at the following RTD park-n-Rides and take the RTD BuffRide to the game: Wadsworth/Hampton; Cold Spring; Nine Mile; Southmoor; Wagon Road; Westminster Center; Broomfield; U.S. 36 and McCaslin; I-25/Broadway; Longmont Terminal; or Roosevelt. These buses start departing about two and a half hours before kick-off and continue departing until approximately 75 minutes before kick-off. The BuffRide returns to the park-n-Rides at the end of the game, with the last bus leaving 45 minutes after the game ends. The cost is $6 – $8 for a round trip fare. (fare depends on park-n-Ride location). Riders must have exact change. Passes, tickets, transfers and tokens are NOT accepted for this special service. For detailed information about a specific route, call 303-299-6000.
  • CU Buffs Bicycle Corral: New this year, free, secured, valet bicycle parking will be provided at the northwest corner of the Gamow Tower at CU’s Duane Physics building.

 

You’re on Your Own for Buses

Hey all! Sorry to have to do this but after much researching and analyzing, we decided not to handle the buses. We were going to have the alumni house charter one or two, but that would require someone on each bus to keep track of y’all. As much as I enjoy helping everyone out, I am not willing to take that on. I’ll be in Boulder enjoying myself long before y’all get on the bus.

There are party buses  in Denver that you all could charter on your own.

There is also a BuffRide shuttle through RTD (Denver’s bus system), but it doesn’t give you much time to play in Boulder.  RTD also has regular buses that run between Denver and Boulder, with the last run back being around 1 am.

There is Boulder Super Shuttle to charter a shuttle.

I’ll keep working on ideas around shuttles for you all to charter on your own, but wanted to give you a heads up on this.

FYI– For your own good stay away from drinking and driving around Boulder. Not that I’m saying it’s okay to drink and drive anywhere, but usually a person is under the limit with one drink. Not in Boulder. Their police are notorious for giving out DUIs and DWAIs. (Many people could get a DWAI with one drink.)  Also, they are sticklers on the speed limit. They don’t know about the free 15 MPH that ATL drivers are used to getting.

Kickoff Has Been Scheduled

The UGA at CU game is scheduled to kickoff at 2:30pm MST!

(For those who are trying to figure it out, that’s 4:30pm ET.)

This should allow us to catch at least the last part of Bama destroying Florida on Pearl Street.
