We will provide additional information of the parking situation if the crops are out of the field, but for now, we’re planning on the field east of the golf course not being available.
If the corn is not out of the field East of the golf course, spectators will be allowed to park inside the golf course grounds in designated areas, or along highway C-54.
We will also be running a shuttle service from the cemetery just east (approximately one mile east) of the golf course. *Spectators need to keep in mind that the shuttle service will only run as fast as our vans can go back and forth from the golf course. The shuttles will start running at 3:30PM on the day of the meet only if that service is needed.
FROM THE H-D ATHLETIC DIRECTOR: We have added some extra teams so our biggest concern will be parking. Be reminded that we are charging $5 per car so carpooling is recommended.
Only parallel parking will be allowed along the driveway leading up to the lodge area. We will have a person directing people on where and how to park. We have been given permission to use the area east of HWY 65 for spectators to park. Please let your patrons know that this is where we would like them to park. We will have a couple of shuttle vehicles available to assist those up to Mayne's Grove if need be.
We would like the busses to drop participants off near the lodge and then park in the area east of HWY 65 as well.
Again, only parallel parking will be allowed along the drive leading to the lodge area.
