Policy: Animals must be kept on a leash of six-feet or shorter in all tailgating areas. Owners must remain in control of their animals at all times and are responsible for cleaning up any messes by their animal. Owners assume all financial responsibility for any damages to property or injury to individuals caused by the animal. Only service animals are allowed inside McLane Stadium.
Reason: This policy mirrors the Baylor University policy for animals on campus. A non-exhaustive list of prohibited animals includes: Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, German Shepherds, Doberman Pinschers, any hybrid mixed with above breeds, non-domesticated animals & animals with a history of aggressive behavior.
BANDS & MUSIC
Policy: Loud music, live bands and other live performances are not allowed in the tailgating areas. Music must be confined to your tailgating area and speakers must be directed into your tailgate area.
Reason: This policy is intended to protect the enjoyment of other fans. Musical tastes and tolerable noise levels vary greatly from tailgate party to tailgate party, and we ask everyone to respect their neighbors.
BARRICADES & FENCING
Policy: Fans may not erect or move barricades, barrels, fencing or any other traffic control devices. All signs and instructions must be obeyed.
Reason: Only University personnel are authorized to erect or remove fencing on campus.
COMMERCIAL ACTIVITY AND SOLICITATIONS
Policy: Commercial activity and solicitations are not allowed on property. Companies may not issue sample products or display signage without proper approval from Baylor IMG College. Food, drink and other items may not be sold or given to the general public.
Reason: This is a matter of legal liability and institutional control. Baylor Athletics does not allow the sale or distribution of goods and services on the campus without proper credentials and insurance.
Policy: The person(s) purchasing the tailgating spot are responsible for the conduct of their guests.
Reason: The close configuration of tailgate areas requires that our guests be good neighbors and conduct themselves in a manner that provides for the comfort and enjoyment of all. Inappropriate behavior will result in the permanent loss of all tailgating privileges.
FLAMMABLES & TRASH
Policy: Charcoal must be disposed of in hot coal barrels and trash in trash/recycling receptacles throughout the tailgating areas. Grease, coals or other trash may not be disposed of on the ground or into the Brazos River. Please do not place charcoal or other flammables in trashcans, under trees or leave in the tailgating or parking areas.
Reason: Even items that appear to be extinguished may remain flammable and cause fires. Trash that is disposed of on the ground or into the Brazos River is degrading to the appearance of our beautiful campus.
Policy: Portable generators are permitted as long as they do not create excessive noise, emission hazards or other safety concerns.
Reason: Generators have a tendency to be loud and intrusive for other tailgaters. Please be respectful of tailgaters in surrounding spots.
Policy: Glass containers are strongly discouraged for use during tailgating activities.
Reason: Broken glass can cause a safety hazard, not only for tailgaters, but also for students on campus during the week.
GRILLS & SMOKERS
Policy: All grills & smokers must be attended at all times and may not obstruct sidewalks, drive lanes or pedestrian walkways. Grills and smokers on trailers are allowed into the on-site tailgating area and must fit within your designated space. Grills and smokers on trailers are not allowed into the Umphrey Law Center tailgating spots.
Reason: Umphrey Law Center tailgating spots don’t have the necessary drive lanes to maneuver trailers without damaging the surrounding landscape. Grills and smokers may be carried or wheeled into spots at the Umphrey Law Center.
Policy: Use of ATV’s, golf carts, gators, scooters, mopeds and other motorized recreational vehicles are prohibited. Only properly credentialed motorized vehicles are allowed on game day at Baylor University.
Reason: The use of motorized vehicles other than automobiles and motor homes can be a danger to pedestrians, especially children.
Policy: Re-entry will NOT be allowed once you leave your parking, tailgating or RV lot.
Reason: Demand for parking spaces near McLane Stadium is at a premium. In order to maximize the number of fans with access into our lots, Baylor Athletics needs an accurate way of credentialing parking, tailgating and RV spaces. This is done by collecting the perforated piece at the bottom of each pass. The parking pass then becomes invalid without the perforated piece.
Policy: Restrooms will be available at the Clyde Hart Track & Field Stadium. Portable restrooms will also be available throughout the tailgating and parking areas. Individuals may not arrange to have portable restrooms in their tailgating area.
Reason: Unless Baylor Athletics manages the activity of providing portable restrooms, these units can be left in areas unserviced, resulting in unsanitary conditions.
Policy: Reserved RV spots are located on-site and at the Ferrell Center. Access into these reserved spots is available from 5:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. the day prior to game day and no earlier than 6:00 a.m. (for 11:00 a.m. kickoffs) & 8:00 a.m. (for all other kickoff times) on game day.
Reason: Reserved RV spots require a Baylor Bear Foundation donation & are sold out for the 2014 season. To be added to the wait list, please call athletic marketing at 254.710.8110 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
RVs – EXHAUST EXTENSIONS
Policy: All motor homes require exhaust extensions that reach the top of the motor home. For the safety of everyone, motor homes without an extension should not operate a generator. This also applies to generators used by fifth wheels.
Reason: Exhaust fumes are dangerous and annoying to other tailgaters.
SECURITY & SAFETY
Policy: It is the responsibility of each tailgate party to secure tailgating items prior to entering the stadium. All valuables should be locked and placed out of sight, all flames and fires extinguished and all barbecue pits, tents, tables and chairs secured. Please obey all posted safety signage & use extreme caution driving into or leaving tailgating areas.
Reason: Baylor Athletics is not responsible or liable for accidents, damage, loss or theft of materials, items or personal property left in the tailgating area. Any person damaging University property will be responsible for the cost of repair.
SETUP & TEARDOWN
Policy: On-Site tailgating setup may begin no earlier than 5:00 p.m. on “set-up day” – the day immediately preceding a Baylor home football game. Sites must be vacated by 10:00 p.m. on set-up day – overnight occupancy is only allowed for RVs. Setup for on-site tailgating spots may begin no earlier than 6:00 a.m. (for 11:00 am kickoffs) & 8:00 a.m. (for all other kickoff times) on game day. With approval from Baylor Athletics, professionally installed & secured on-site tents may stay up for the duration of the 2014 football season.
There is no “set-up day” for tailgating spots at the Umphrey Law Center. Overnight occupancy is not allowed. Setup for tailgating spots at the Umphrey Law Center may begin no earlier than 6:00 a.m. (for 11:00 am kickoffs) & 8:00 a.m. (for all other kickoff times) on game day. Fans must have all items – including tents – cleared and cleaned by 5:00 p.m. the day after the game.
Tailgating is not allowed in the Dutton or Speight garages.
Reason: On game day, tailgaters will have access to their assigned spots as soon as parking lots open. If your tailgating spot is located on-site, and you are interested in keeping your on-site tailgating tent up for the entire 2014 football season, please contact email@example.com. This is not an option for tailgaters at the Umphrey Law Center – as it would interfere with campus activities during the week. Tailgating is not allowed in parking garages.
TENTS & TAILGATING AMENITIES
Policy: Tents or canopies must be secured and may not utilize stakes that penetrate the ground more than 12 inches. Tailgating amenities – including tents, canopies, furniture, grills, generators, cables or satellite dishes – may not obstruct sidewalks, drive lanes or pedestrian walkways.
Reason: Stakes longer than 12 inches can damage utilities beneath the Baylor campus and can be dangerous to tailgaters. Sidewalks, drive lanes and pedestrian walkways are necessary routes for pedestrians to reach McLane Stadium. Please be courteous of other tailgaters.
