Park gates will open at 6:15 am for boat trailers, busses, and team supply trailers ONLY.

Team Tents
All Team tents must be place in the large grass area directly to the south of the main access road going into the park.  No team tents will be place north of the pond bridge.
Trailers may unload from THE MAIN DRIVE next to the staging area. (See Map). They must me moved north, PAST the yellow gate and backed onto the lawn area.  both sides may be used.
Tow vehicles will be parked in the parking spaces at the Island Shelter, just south of the yellow gate.
Parking for Team trailers (tents, supplies, and food) must be placed in the parking area along side the main access road across from the team tent area.  Tell your group to get there and place their trailer on Friday to be sure.
They are not allowed on the grass area (due to rain) or where the Busses will be parked for any reason per the city.  Please tell your group they will not be allowed to 'drop off'.
As you all know, parking is always tight.  There will be a limited number of spaces for cars north of the yellow gates, but it is limited.  There are also spaces in the parking lot directly to the right when as soon as you enter the park.  Additionally cars can be parked on Monroe Ave on the shoulder.
There is a large parking lot at the north end of the park.  Use the entrance north of Boat launch 2.  All students and athletes MUST use this lot.  It is only a short walk.
Drop off
All students must be dropped off in the circular turn around at the end of the main access road.  
We will of course make special arrangements for handicapped drop off and parking.  Cars must have a handicap plate or card to park in our designated areas.
With all the athletes and food we generate a lot of trash.  A larger dumpster will be place near the Team area.  IT IS EVERY TEAM'S RESPONSIBILITY TO COLLECT, BAG, AND TRANSPORT ALL YOUR TRASH TO THE DUMPSTER.  Placing by your tent area is not acceptable.  We have limited staff this year and the city willl levy a $500 fine if the park is not cleaned throughly.  I understand your parents are tired and want to get on road, but this simply must be done.
Thank you for your cooperation.
