Handicap Parking with Handicap Sticker or License Plate: Upon entrance to the Parking Lots located off HELMER ROAD, please advise Parking Volunteers that you or someone in the vehicle is handicapped. The Parking Committee will direct you to the designated Handicap Parking Area. We have a Free Shuttle Service that will run back and forth from the Handicap Parking area to the main gate.
Please remember we are on grass but we do have runways and taxiways that we can use to be mobile on. However, should anyone need any assistance or walking is a burden, simply let the Parking Committee know that you will need our "FREE HANDICAP SHUTTLE SERVICE," and they will call the Handicap Shuttle Service Committee for you.
When handicap guests are ready to return to their vehicle, simply go to one of the Beverage Tents, back to the Main Entrance or flag down any volunteer on a golf cart and they will call the Handicap Shuttle Service.
**Please understand, due to Covid-19, we are limited as to what we are allowed to do, so the Shuttle Service this year will only be for our Handicap Guests. Thank you for understanding.
