3/4 States Parking jNotice

Note from Precision Gym – 3/4 States Meet Host:

I have just been informed that Sportika has booked multiple events this weekend, 17/18 February 2018.  This was not the case when the venue was contracted.
We are expecting to meet the parking capacity of 450 cars. There will be a complimentary bus shuttle to Sportika from a school on Woodward Rd. and parking personnel will direct cars to the over-flow lot.
There is a drop off area in front of the Sportika building if passengers would like to be dropped off while the driver goes to the over-flow lot.
Please pass along this information so that your coaches and parents will expect possible parking delays.
Please accept my apologies in advance for any inconvenience. We are diligently planning to make this a great meet experience.

Good luck to all!
