Upon completion, the Athletic Director/Cross-Country coach will report to the Commissioner for final review.
Concessions: Concessions will be available. We ask that you inform your parents that no food or drinks are allowed with the exception of the team ice chest.
Restrooms: We will have 4 clean port-o-potties available on the field by the gate entrance. They will be clearly marked male and female. Please do not wander through the course looking for a bathroom in our school buildings. All building will be locked and you will not be able to get in.
Parking: For the safety of the athletes and all spectators, there will not be cars allowed to park within the gates. You may park along the Gathering Oak sidewalk, but you will have to walk around to the soccer/football field gate entrances. We will not utilize any other gates (3 located by the playground area) so that we can keep people from walking through the trail. Please do not park in the businesses across from the soccer field. We have partnered with the YMCA which is .20 miles up the road on Blanco (21654 Blanco Rd) to use their back parking lot. There is plenty of parking there and we will offer a free shuttle service to and from the YMCA to the gate entrance. We will have 3-4 busses running back and forth continuously. If your school is coming on a bus, we ask that you drop your team off at the gate entrance and park your bus along the fence of the YMCA (see map) and just send your bus driver on the shuttle.
