Time/Traffic for thursday
 
Making first ever trip to Williams Brice for an actual game finally. What time do I need to be sure to be on Bluff Rd before traffic starts to pick up? Coming from I-26, really dont want to sit on there for 2 hours in traffic heading in.

Maybe a little overkill but I always get there around 12 for 6-7 o clock kickoff

Latest to be sure to avoid mass traffic and lots of waiting would be 3 hours prior to game time. After that, the police begin stalling traffic to let team buses, band buses, etc, etc, through. Not to mention, the shuttles start about 3 hours prior to game time.

I would want to park at least four hours early to have no traffic problems. But I plan to have my tailgate setup and a cold beverage in my hand by 1, so in probably not the best to ask

I'm leaving from Charlotte as well. I plan to leave around 1:30 because I have a stop to make before I get to the stadium. If I were you, I would take the Bluff Rd. exit of 77. There will be plenty of cash lots off Bluff. If you want, PM me and I'll tell you where I park. It's a cheap, pretty well hidden spot that's within decent walking distance to everything.

The fairgrounds opens at noon. Look at gamecockparking.com or see it directly from Grayson, the head of fair parking:

The SC State Fair controlled spaces open at Noon. The Gamecock Club spaces open at 1 pm. Got that information in a text from GamecocksOnline yesterday.

This is just for those areas behind the fence in the SC State Fairgrounds (i.e. by the Rocket and gameday parking). The GCC parking area is still purchased through the GCC (i.e. Garnet, Black, White, etc areas in the actual parking lot).

Here is the information from GamecockOnline about Carolina Fair Park parking information (Fairgrounds parking).

Who posted that? (Dan)?

The fairgrounds parking lot has sections that are GCC parking, and has to be bought through the GCC, the gates are staffed by GCC hired staff, and have different opening times. That's the price I was wondering about.

GCC fairground parking is $275-$400.

$250 direct from fairgrounds (non-GCC).
