OK, here we are back at TechTalk. I wanted to pass on this information to you Tech fans that I received from Tech's sports information office. These are just some things to be aware of for the T-Day Spring Game tomorrow if you're coming up to Atlanta:
- Admission to the game is free. (Free, espcially in this economy, is always a good thing)
- Only three gates – 5, 7 and 9 – will be open, beginning at 11 a.m. Gates 5 and 7 are on Bobby Dodd Way behind the North end zone. Gate 9 is on Techwood Drive. (You don't want to have to walk all the way around the stadium if you don't need to, so remember these)
- With construction projects occurring in the West stands, fans are asked to sit in the East or North stands. (Those are the stands closest to Techwood Dr and Bobby Dodd Way)
- There will be no charge for parking on campus in legal parking areas.
Parking will be available on a first-come, first-served basis in the Student Center Lot, the North Avenue lots (E-45, E-46, E-47, E-49), Peters Parking Deck, and on Tech Parkway, Techwood Drive, and Fowler Street. (I suggest Peters parking deck. Plenty of spaces, close to the stadium, close to Callaway Plaza where the Wreck will be...good parking spot. Just leave a space free for me!)
- Festivities begin outside the stadium, on Callaway Plaza, beginning at 10 a.m. Interactive games, face painters, music, Georgia Tech merchandise and more will all be in place. (Kids love festivals, should be a fun atmosphere for them)
- At halftime of Saturday’s game, head coach Paul Johnson will be honored by the Atlanta Touchdown Club.
- The game will not be televised, however Comcast Sports Southeast will air a special one-hour show on Georgia Tech football May 3 at 1 p.m. as well as other times this spring.
