To help provide the best tailgating experience that Limestone can offer, we have established a few guidelines to make your tailgating party great and safe!

  • Alcoholic Beverage Policy in Stadium Lots
    Alcoholic beverages are not permitted on the Gaffney High School campus. Also, glass containers are prohibited.
     
  • Garbage & Recycling
    Limestone is proud to have the use of the beautiful Gaffney High School stadium as its home venue, and it’s up to us to keep it that way! When tailgating please be mindful of your surroundings and your impact on the environment. Bring plastic trash bags, bag your trash and take it with you, and recycle what you can.
     
  • Restrooms
    Portable restrooms will be set up near all official Limestone-controlled tailgate lots. Tailgaters are not permitted to use restrooms inside the stadium until entering the gates for the game.
     
  • Reserved Parking Spaces
    Numbered reserved parking spaces are available for the entire season, but unavailable to be purchased for individual games. To inquire about reserved parking for the season, please contact the Limestone College Athletics Department.
     
  • Power for your Tailgate
    Limestone College recommends that you use your vehicle to power any audio or video equipment and AC power converters can be purchased at most electronic stores. Generators are not prohibited but are not recommended as they present many safety hazards.
     
  • Fire Lanes and Handicap Spaces
    Fire lanes and handicap spaces will be strictly enforced. If you are illegally parked in either a fire lane or handicap space you may be putting others at risk and are subject to ticketing and/or towing. Be responsible and follow the direction of parking attendants and Limestone College Public Safety.
