Parents, I received this from the meet director last night about parking at the meet. Looks like you will need to get there early to get a parking spot close by. You should drop off your athlete at the front gate before you start looking. – Coach Hubble

“Saturday morning, parking could be a mess! The SATs are at Granite Bay from about 7:30 – noon. AND! There is a Little League Parade occuring at Fiest park at 9 am. The parade will begin around Elmhurst and East Roseville Parkway at that time. They will also be having fun and games till 3:30 pm. The group in charge wlil most likely be at Fiest Park around 6 or 7 am setting up. Unless you are there early, you may not be able to park there.”
