Tailgating question


Aug 13, 2013, 9:34 AM

I want to get a tent for this season, I was at Tiger Sports Shop this weekend and saw 2 tents (budget $150, and deluxe $225)... Does the deluxe have a heavier gauge steel or a better quality canopy.. Or are you just paying for an extra tigerpaw ? Thanks

dont skimp. get the better one. Go down to ACE

sign up for their ace rewards card.

Buy the tent for $199 I think.

then you will get Ace rebate card for $20-$30

Go to Academy Sports....

and get a Logo Chair Clemson tent for $130.00. I have two of them and I can tell you, they are well built, sturdy and durable.

My wife likes the idea of the side panels, can you attach those to the ones at Academy

Side panels do not come with the tents from Academy....


Aug 13, 2013, 10:09 AM

but you can order them seperately from Logo Chair. Three side panels will run you an additional $60.00 or $70.00

Side Panels?.

Side panels for tailgating?

Does she not like the neighbors or is cold-natured because they'll cut of the breeze?

Seems like another thing for the wind to catch and flip your tent.

Agreed !!!!

Side panels block the view and restrict air flow

She's pretty fair skinned and the sun will broil her... I would just get one to block the sun from the side

Actually...you bring up a good point....

The Logo Chair tents from Academy are 9 x 9 and fit perfectly into a single parking space wereas the EZ-Up tents are 10 x 10 and tend to encroch on the adjacent spaces. Just an FYI.

There's two schools of thought on these tents.

I have four in my garage. Two of which were expensive and two were really cheap. They all break at some point, so I'd buy the $49.00 orange special at Academy. Four years down the road, when your buddy who was over-served breaks it, go get a shiny new one for $49.00.

Exactly! How much you pay is only for those who like to brag about how good theirs is because of the high price they paid. If they were made to last for ever, there wouldn't be a need for a ware house to stock pile them. Things you buy these days are only as good as you take care of it.

I have to dispute. My solid white E-Z-Up from 2004 is still


Aug 13, 2013, 11:09 AM

going strong. It's got a little mildew and my wife had to sow the bag together and put on a new zipper after my drunk buddy riped it, but overall it's battle tested. This will be it's 10 season. It's also had 8 carolina cups, 2 Nascar races, and one beach trip under it's belt. It's the 10 X 10 Eclipse II that Sam's club sells.

1. make sure it is mounted to take up part of your neighbors parking space. rules about that apply to others not you.

2. also station it so the aisle where people drive is impeded too. if they were real fans they'd have gotten there before you.

Lastly if anyone complains- stab their football. ;)

You left out positioning your cornhole board right next to your neighbor's folding table so that when you miss food, chips and drinks fly in all directions.
