Ralph Wilson Stadium adopts new gameday stuff

By Tim Graham

Buffalo Bills who attend games at Ralph Wilson Stadium will want to know about the team's revamped gameday procedures, which will be in effect for Thursday night's preseason opener against the Washington Redskins.

To read about the changes in more detail, check out Buffalo News reporter T.J. Pignataro's story. Here are some of the bullet points:

* New screening process at entry gate: Security staff will use hand wands on all guests -- even vendors and members of the media elite -- entering Ralph Wilson Stadium. The Bills would like fans to be prepared to hold their keys and cell phones in their hands to speed things along.

* The complete list of prohibited and permitted items you can click here.

* Starting with the Aug. 25 preseason game, the Bills Tailgate Party in Lot C behind the scoreboard will more than double in size. There will be live music, children's activities and the Buffalo Jills.

* One-car, one-space parking: Larger striped parking spots in Lots E and F, as they were for Lots 2 and 3 last year. Lots E and F also have been repaved recently.
