There have been some late-breaking changes to our parking situation. It is going to be very difficult if people do not carpool. Please read the details below from Tom to make sure you are not walking an extra mile to get to the fields!
Email Tom if you are willing to volunteer your minivan for shuttle service.
That field next to the parking lot, which has served us as our main parking area for the past umpteen Winterleagues is now gone. Goodbye, so long, gone forever. On Monday construction crews came in and finally tore it all to h-e-double hockeysticks.
This puts us in a bit of a pickle. I have updated the map to reflect the new parking areas.
That brings us to the following points:
- Please carpool. Players that carpool (more than one person in the car) will get to park at the areas closest to the field (turn in off of royal, parking in the gravel under the bridge). People parking in these areas MUST DRIVE SLOW AND TURN OFF ALL MUSIC while in the stables area. NO EXCEPTIONS. The last thing we want to do is spook a horse with a minivan doing it’s best Dukes of Hazzard impression. Parking is limited, so when it is full we will be coning off the bridge and posting signs on both Royal and Riverside to continue on to the standard Riverside parking.
- Please do not park at the police station. We will park, as we normally do, in the parking lot off of riverside. However, there is a big penalty for showing up late. When the riverside lot is full, players will need to park in the overflow lot, further down Riverside.
- The overflow lot is a brisk 5000ft walk to the fields. For you math wizards, that is 280 feet less than a mile. Up until the start of games we will try to find a volunteer with a van to shuttle people back and forth, but if you are late and the shuttle has quit running, you are, as we say, sh*t out of luck.
- We need to find the aforementioned volunteer. Do you have a van that you would let one of our injured players drive as the shuttle? Would you be willing to both be the volunteer and the shuttle? Either way, let me know and I can promise my undying gratitude.
We are working diligently on trying to come up with other solutions, but right now this is the best we can do.
Also, please remember to bring a dark shirt and a white shirt, and your checkbook if you haven’t paid.
