The PAAEC Tailgate will be located in Lot D. Our exact location (aisle, etc.) will be determined that morning, and for those of you with smart phones or computer access, directions to the tent(s) will be posted ASAP at Gilles Carter's cell phone (917-612-4334) may also be used to determine tent location. In the end, though, look for orange balloons and the PAAEC Banner.

A full list of Yale tailgate rules can be found here. Parking lots open three hours prior to kickoff and all vehicles must depart the lots NO LATER than one hour after the conclusion of the game. Parking permits can be purchased in advance via Yale's athletics site, or in cash on game day at game time of entry to Lot D ($5).


The Yale shuttle will be transporting to and from the Yale if you prefer not to drive.
