Sounds like parking will be a nightmare for state on Sunday. If you can, please carpool!

FTC Championship  Teams:

We have been alerted that there is a large soccer tournament happening next door to Benson HS on Sunday, March 2nd.  We will be sharing the parking lot with them. Let’s be gracious professionals.  Chances are our teams will arrive before the soccer people.
HOWEVER, we have been requested to ask all of you with LARGE VEHICHLES like school busses to park in the farthest part of the lot.
This will make best use of the spaces that are available.
This is the GREEN Parking lot indicated on this map.

IN General – Please make sure you are parking legally. There is street parking all round Benson. Look at the larger map.<https://www.google.com/maps/dir/546+NE+12th+Ave,+Portland,+OR+97232/@45.5274309,-122.6540954,404m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m8!4m7!1m0!1m5!1m1!1s0x5495a0b0f90bf33f:0x5c07e60fc07835ca!2m2!1d-122.6527502!2d45.5271505> You may want to suggest to your guests that they park away from Benson and take the MAX train.  Yes, we are holding an urban State Championship. It is a different experience. I’m sure you will love being in the city!

Do not park in the ORANGE LOT. We need this for the sizable number of vehicles bringing in equipment and for concessions and hospitality vehicles.

Remember – Teams are welcome to leave their belongings in the PIT until you are ready to go to your vehicles and leave. It is best not to leave expensive laptops/robots/tools in your vehicles unattended.
