    Thought I needed to trade a yellow, but it is orange.

    I have orange pass, I need blue or platinum.

    It's for my friend's 79 year old mom who tailgates with us. She is awesome--a grandma that prefers the Bull Pen. It would be easier for her to join us from blue/platinum because she gets to games later than we do and she wouldn't have to walk as far. Though I think she does operationally define the word "spry."

    Not a straight up trade, but we can talk price difference.

    Granny is definately one of my favorite tailgaters in the Platinum lot.

    Step, is this for the granny (Taylor's) that sit next to me? If so, tell her that I said hello and that I can't wait to see them this season!

    Steph,

    I don't have a platinum for trade, but my group will most likely have one for sale. If you don't find the trade you're looking for, it may be an option to sell yours and buy our extra.
    The available spot will be along the fence by the platinum lot ticket booths. Let me know if it sounds like something that might work for you.
    We're not in a hurry to do anything, so you should have time to work on your trade, and if you can't find one, ours might be a last resort for you.

    Michael,

    If Steph doesn't take up your offer, my tailgating group would be interested. PM me if it's available please.

    Sell it to Stemp. It might be easier for me to do a orange-blue trade with a broker.

    We call her Big Rita, even though she is tiny. Her grand daughter is Little Rita.

    I definitely want to meet her!!! Tell her if I figure out a way to cool off my space with AC, she can come early and come down and chill with me!! Nice to know there's another Granny on the lot, and in the Bullpen!!

    Keep in mind that a blue pass doesn't guarantee a closer parking space especially if she arrives around 11ish. I have a blue pass and on most occasions, even though I make a point to drive in the far left lane have been directed to turn right which leads to spaces near the 610 access road. However, if you mention her age and distance being a challenge, perhaps the attendants will be a bit more considerate.
