If you encounter parking control in the blue lot on Friday, we have been advised to tell you to tell the attendant that you are picking up will call credentials.

For those who have volunteered, our staff will report to the stadium on Thursday at 1:30, and then on Friday at 8:30, and will start final field set up around 9:00. We would love any and all help distributing signs, etc. as well as the Thursday movement of those pads, etc.
