As you enter the driveway, (marked with stone walls on each side) make an immediate left turn into the main (north) parking lot. There are machines for paid parking but I'm not sure if they take credit cards or if you receive a ticket and pay as you exit. I will try to have the method of payment clarified before Monday. Also note, you will be reimbursed for your parking but I will require your receipt for payment at the next rehearsal.
,
At this point, you should see two white tents to your right. We will be playing in one of them so try to park as closely as possible to them but not in spots closest to the building. Those spots should be shown as reserved for CIBC staff.
