A note about parking:
Please remind families that everyone must park in legal parking areas only. No one should park on the grass (snow) or they will be towed – there are plenty of nearby lots if the one at the pool is full. There are two lots very close to the pool which can easily accommodate the meet. One is on Rte. 66 (left out of the pool lot, left onto 66, and left into that lot) and there are walkways to take you right back to the pool. The other is even a shorter walk to the pool and is actually right above the pool. Use Ahwaga Street off Rte. 66 (left out of the pool lot, left onto 66, and left onto Ahwaga) and at the end of the street is a lot. Walk down the stairs to the pool from that lot. If you are coming in from the downtown area, Ahwaga is a street on the right past Green Street, Forbes Library, and the Smith Parking garage.
