Default Grass or Concrete????

Which one is it for you?

I have to be in the grass, can't do the concrete unless it is raining. The grass is what makes the Yellow Lot special. Easier on my feet, kids can play, and it is alot cooler than being on concrete with the heat bouncing right back at you. Not sure who made the decision to only have grass in one lot, but I am glad they did!

But I do see quite a few people parking in the concrete even when there is plenty of parking in the grassy area. My question to you is why do you prefer the concrete? Allergies? Grass stains?

Grass is better but the concrete is closer to the stadium.

Grass!

We've tailgated on the concrete when it's raining, but it's always been a grass thing for us, as well (since the first season).

We have a very unique atmosphere at the yellow lot grass, because I don't think any other lot has the grass option.

I say concrete, but I am biased! I know that washers are easier to find on concrete rather than grass. The EZ-UPS keep the concrete cool and the fans are there on the hot days. The grass can't be very good on the rain days.

Not me, I am in the shade on concrete. Sitting next to the margarita machine between games of washers. Everybody has their own preference, mine is concrete in the Orange Lot.

You forgot one option:

Platinum: a heavy, grayish-white, highly malleable and ductile metallic element, resistant to most chemicals, practically unoxidizable except in the presence of bases, and fusible only at extremely high temperatures: used for making chemical and scientific apparatus, as a catalyst in the oxidation of ammonia to nitric acid, and in jewelry.

I would like to do it on the grass but since we have that nice area along the fence (off Murworth) it gives us the space we need.

The grass is horrible in the rain, and it catches fire a lot for those 95 degree days and it's a long, long, long, loooooong way from the stadium. For your own safety, I'd advise staying away from the grass.
