Parents Weekend 2012

I made reservations for Parents Weekend and wonder if anybody can help me out with some details. I'm mainly concerned about the Football game. We bought the package that includes tailgate and bus transportation. "charge per car" was mentioned as an option, but I didn't see any place to buy that option...maybe it's just pay at the field? Anyone have any suggestions as to which is the best thing to do...ride, or drive? How do they orchestrate the shuttles for parents?

I assume students do not sit with parents at the game. Student gets a ticket to the tailgate when parent buys a ticket. I am going to try to figure out how to get a ticket for my daughter's roommate, since her parents aren't coming. Will have to call UM for that info. It sounds like potentially a lot of hassle and then not sitting with your student?

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks!
