68 decibels? Jeez that's low. I used to sell stereo equipment back in the day. I'll try to find something online here, but if memory serves their are vacuums that make that much noise. Keep in mind with decibels that each number up doubles the sound from the previous, so 68 decibels is twice as loud as 67. Again, this is from memory. Hope that is correct.

I was a little off but on the right path. 10 db is 10 times louder than the faintest audible sound. 20db is 100 times louder, 30 db is 1000 times louder etc.

But, I was spot on with my vacuum cleaner. This site below lists a vacuum at 80DB. Guess that would be an avg, but 68 db for music? That would be like a clock radio. Normal human conversations are between 60-75 DB depending on the speaker and other noises. What I am trying to say is 68DB is extremely low for a parking lot speaker system. I could see 85 or 90 or maybe even 80. But 68? Not even worth having it on.

decibel level scale

Pretty much everyone in our area, around light pole 8 knows where everyone else is setting up and knows where they park. The only time there is an issue is during preseason when everyone sells their tickets and you have rookies or virgins in the parking lot. In the past I have asked people that showed up just after me if they could move one or two spaces (before they got set up) and have never had a problem.

LIttle Red Wagon, light pole number 8, Filo, Outcast Cookers, two Texans cookers and a bunch of smaller groups and individuals have parked in the same spot since the beginning. I take a hike around the parking lot and I see the same people in the same spots year after year. I don't see an issue with it. Not really an enforced rule but more of a respect rule.

I think the point of contention is that the offending party got to enter the gates before everyone else. To me, that's BS.

Texan Mojo has been in the same spot since Day 1, except when a couple of monsoons made the grass unusable. Our convoy is lined up on South Main at 7:00 AM to make sure we get the spot we want. Many others are there just as early to get the spots they want. If someone wants our spot and they are willing to wake up earlier than we are, they are welcome to it. If someone rolls in the back gate at 7:45 AM to claim my spot, I call BS.

LIttle Red Wagon, light pole number 8,

Filo.... very well said, we have been in the SAME spot give or take 3-4 spots for every game since 2002. We all have our parking for the vehicles and have 3 OPEN spots for the trailer, and 4 tents. We have NEVER had a problem, its kind of like a dog that has maked its territory! LOL...... break out the ketchup bottles and beat Jacksonville! By the way.... we are called "Party @ Eight"
