We appreciate your genuine interest in our tailgating services. I just wanted to followup from our communication yesterday and let you know that, at this time, we have suspended sales to the general public and will only be offering tailgate packages to members of the Gamecock Club. Sales to the general public will resume at 8am EST on August 22nd (based on availability).
If you have any questions feel free to contact me personally.

I have a suggestion. Ban all non Carolina tents,chairs and flags from the area. Require the Tail Gate Guys to furnish only Gamecock logo items,not even any generic.
So they are really telling the truth - this time!! Yeah, right.
Contract is signed. Im not an attorney, but I don't think you can contract with someone then put a bunch of new requirements on them after the fact. That is why I will continue to tell folks that they need to rent these suckers out for the UGA game.

People are so lazy they pay people to setup their tailgates for them now? Or am i missing something?

Additional terms can become part of a contract if certain conditions are met. Granted, I loathe contract law and have not seen this contract. Just saying it's possible.
Understand your argument but when has the University not done as they pleased. This contract with the Tailgate Guys must be for a finite period. Play hardball. Simple question".You know your renewal comes up in... ,don't you?"
Tailgate Guys also just changed (or are in the process of changing) their website again - probably modifying it as a result of talks they have had with USC. No mention of packages, locations, restrictions, or anything there now. This may be a good sign - finally!

Your suggestion would result in Tailgate Guys having to replace or greatly modify all of their tents and chairs. There would be a huge cost involved and most likely grounds for a suit. I think its clear Tailgate Guys is willing to work through our concerns, but they have a business to run. White tents and garnet chairs are fine.
You're missing something. I live in Atlanta and I'm lucky to get to one game a year in Cola. When I do, I real no good place to tailgate and, obviously, I'm shut out of the premium spaces. This way I can have it waiting for me, don't have to pack a massive cooler and make multiple stops from ATL, and get to a tailgate ready tent in the middle of it all. Go in the game; hit the car after; and go home.
I've been to a couple of Auburn games with my fiance' where these guys do their thing. There is no a proliferation of opposing fans...I went to the Iron Bowl and maybe saw three Alabama tents set up by these guys.

Use those at their other locations. If the University has to chip in,fine. They caused this mess .
The reality is that the policy has only changed for 1 week. After that the sales will be open to the general public again, and nothing would preclude a Georgia or Tennessee fan from using the spots.
You can, it is called a Change Order...common business practice. However, both parties have to sign for it to be an official agreement.
I would be surprised if non-Gamecock fans have already signed a contract though. Therefor, new verbage can be added to their existing contract template.
Just my two cents.
''fair is not getting them same as everybody else, fair is getting what you need to succeed."
I suggest that you rent a space for a single game at Seawell's (especially Lot B - grass) which has a nice tailgating atmosphere. They will rent spots for single games and I can give you the contact info, since that is where I have my annual tailgating spot (219B).
Regarding the Tailgate Guys, they may have suspended sales for a couple of weeks but will resume them and will not go back on the spots already reserved.
Lol at the folks discussing whether a contract can or can't be changed/modified without actually knowing the terms of the contract.
And yes, as a general rule, if both parties agree to it then a change (or new agreement) can be reached. Does not sound like 'both' parties agree, though without seeing the contract no one can know what can or cannot be done...
Cocked&Locked - no dig at you, you were just the last of a few to mention the contract and its terms.
I was referring to the contract signed between USC and Tailgate Guys. BCSCock wants us to add requirements that TG use gamecock tents and chairs. The current plan is for garnet chairs and white tents. I see no reason why TG would agree to such a change in terms given the likely expense involved. Any assertion that USC should eat those costs is nuts.
I hope folks don't think I'm not upset about this too. I don't like it one bit. I just think the best solution is to purchase the spots before they're opened to the public. Start with the UGA game, then the UT game. Its quite frankly the only viable solution I've heard to date.
Given that the plan is for white tents and garnet chairs I think it's safe to assume requiring TG to use chairs and tents with a gamecock logo would necessitate a change or addition to the current terms. It seems very likely to be the case and there aren't really any negative implications if I'm wrong.
The only thing better would be this email:
"All of our packages are now being sold through the University of South Carolina Gamecock Club. Please contact USC for information on reserving these tailgating areas."
