UCLA AAD on Twitter: Tailgating OK at UCLA Spring Showcase

When UCLA announced recently that the 2014 Spring Showcase is to be held at the StubHub (formerly Home Depot) Center in Carson, an important issue arose:

Will the StubHub Center allow tailgating?

After all, the StubHub Center website states very clearly:

Tailgating is prohibited at the complex and on the campus of California State University, Dominguez Hills.

Well, then why open the parking lots at 1pm if the gates themselves don't open until 3pm?

Recently, UCLA Senior Associate Athletic Director Josh Rebholz was asked about tailgating on Twitter. Initially, his response was that they were working on it.

Today, he posted some more info:

When a response puts quotes around the word "picnicking," the next question is how are they defining "picnicking"?

This still doesn't seem to quite settle things because it is dependent on how someone defines what an open flame is. It could be argued that this would allow propane grills but not charcoal, although I would argue that an open flame is one that is not contained. If it is contained inside my grill with a lid on it and I have a water supply to put the fire out, then I don't consider it an "open flame".

The one thing that is clear is that, if you are not cooking (eating pre-made sandwiches, for instance), you should be good to go.

Personally, I may end up calling good ol' LACFD Station 127 (the old timers would recognize it as the fictional Station 51 from the 70s TV show "Emergency") to get their advice as they would probably be the ones to enforce things.
