Michael,

Thanks for the parking information. A couple of related questions. Can you purchase the parking passes from the attendant? If not, where do we park to register/buy parking passes. Also, how late will registration be open on Thursday, August 3?

Thanks,

Kristi

Michael:

I will arrive on August 2nd. Can I get a parking pass this day? Could I buy for the whole time at one shot or do I have to buy a parking pass everyday for that day only? Is the parking pass good for the whole day if we leave and come back the same day?

Also where can we pickup information on the location and availability of the warmup and training pools in the area. I heard the high school would be available for competitors during the competition? I really want to know the options for places to swim the week of August 2 through the 10th.

Thanks very much,
Andrew

I emailed my question to the parking@2006finamasters.org address, and here is the response that I received -- in case anyone else was wondering.

<Drive to the parking lot, the attendant will have a 90 minute free pass for you to park in the lot, while you obtain your credentials and parking passes for the remainder of your stay.>
