Tech Tailgaters Swarm Hastings Parking Lot

Good luck if you're trying to find a place to camp at the Hastings parking lot. Tech fans began filling the parking lot as early as Tuesday. Pretty much everyone tailgates in the same spot every weekend. So you meet everyone. "Who's set up right there next to you?" NewsChannell 11 asked. "That's Abner Euresti," said George Kirkland, Tech tailgater.

Steve Hodges is an early bird too. He arrived early this morning to get his usual spot. "It's right here next the our entrance gate," Hodges said.

Tradition has it that once camp is set up, it's time to break out the recipe for the perfect game day. You must have a big smoker, plenty of grub "we're going to have chicken enchiladas tonight and brisket tomorrow," said one tailgater. "Oh, and bring your game face."
