Can someone tell me how many rows of seats are in Rose Bowl. I got 18 and
64, just want to see whether I need to take binoculars.

Also, do the rows start from the field upwards or the other way round.

Thanks,
Lokes.

To expand on this, where are the rows with letters rather than numbers?

Can somebody familiar with the stadium describe the numbering?  (We have
maps of where the sections are--we just need to know where various rows
are.)

Thanks.

Having seen no response, I did some research...

I went to the library and got an L.A. Yellow Pages.  The map of the Rose
Bowl indicates that lettered rows are in front of numbered rows.  It did
not say how many lettered rows there were--if the map was to scale then
I would guess they didn't use all the letters.

The phone book map also showed section lines as:

\              |   | Section 5
 |--midfield---+   +---------------------------------+
/              |   | Section 4

rather than:
                   +---------------------------------+
\              |   |                                 |
 |--midfield---+   + Section 4                       |
/              |   |                                 |
                   +---------------------------------+

I don't know which is right, but it's only a small difference.

Anyone interested in figuring out where the categories lines are?  We could
solicit data and draw a scatter plot.
