In order to relieve some of the parking problems we have experienced the past two years, we are going to have a designated "tailgate lot" for all bands who wish to set up a camp to feed their students. This means your bus will not be right beside your "camp." The "tailgate lot" is located about a half block from the Student and Community Center parking lot and is right across the street from the Baseball parking lot. NO camps will be set up next to busses in either the SCC or Baseball lots. Please indicate on the entry form if you will need a “tailgate” spot. If you indicate you will need a spot, we will send special directions with your entry as to the location of the lot. This will greatly improve moving busses in and out of the parking lots and give everyone more space.
