> Attention please to all who are planning to attend the
> Maggie L. Walker FIRST LEGO League Tournament!
>
> We have a major conflict with the Richmond Marathon, which takes  
> place this Saturday --- the same day as Maggie Walker's FLL  
> tournament.
>
> Maggie L. Walker Governor's school is encircled by the routes of  
> the three marathon races and travel to and from the school this  
> Saturday is liable to be difficult.  Most important to our  
> tournament, Richmond Marathon/Sports Backers is closing off  
> Lombardy Street between 7AM and 3PM and WILL NOT be allowing  
> tournament goers to access the Maggie Walker parking lot.
>
> However, George Washington Carver Elementary School and James River  
> Bus Lines have both generously agreed to allow us to use their  
> parking lots for the event.  Both are close by the school.  George  
> Washington Carver Elementary School is located at 1110 W. Leigh  
> Street and the parking lot is entered from the Harrison Street on  
> the side of the school.  The James River Bus Lines parking lot is  
> on Allen Ave., which is across from their terminal building at 915  
> N. Allen Avenue and between W. Leigh Street and W. Broad Street.
>
> There are only two routes that can be used to get to Maggie Walker  
> on the day pf the Tournament.  You must access I-95 either south of  
> the city or north of the Boulevard.
> We are told these routes into the school will be open all day.
>
> However, please note that once at Maggie Walker it appears unlikely
> that anyone will be able to drive out again until after 3PM when  
> the Marathon is over!
>
> Directions to get into Maggie L. Walker Governor's School for the  
> day are as follows -
>
> North of Richmond:  Take I-95 South to the Belvidere Exit, Number  
> 76B. Turn right onto West Leigh Street at the top of the ramp and  
> follow W. Leigh Street to George Washington Carver Elementary  
> School at 1110 W. Leigh Street.  Turn right onto Harrison Street to  
> access the parking lot.  Only use the parking lot on Harrison  
> Street.  Please do not park on the grass or on the ball fields!    
> You can then walk to Maggie L. Walker Governor's School, which is  
> four blocks west of Carver on W. Leigh Street.
>
> South of Richmond: Take I-95 North to the Boulevard Exit.  At the  
> end of the exit ramp, turn left onto Hermitage Road and go under  
> the overpass.  Continue for several blocks on Hermitage until you  
> reach the stop light at W. Leigh Street.  Turn left onto W. Leigh  
> St.  At the stop sign, turn right onto Allen Ave., then turn right  
> into the James River Bus Lines' parking lot, across the street from  
> the JRBL terminal.  Please do not park in the terminal parking  
> lot.  To get to Maggie L. Walker Governor's School walk back to the  
> intersection of Allen Ave. and W. Leigh Street.  The school is half  
> a block east.
>
> Alternate route:  If you can time your trip so that you will be  
> crossing Broad Street at Meadow St./Hermitage Rd. between 7-8AM,  
> you can take the Powhite Parkway to the Cary Street exit - East.   
> Travel east on Cary Street to Meadow St.  Turn left onto Meadow  
> Street.  Between 7-8AM you should be able to cross both Cary St.  
> and Broad Street.  Once you cross Broad St., Meadow becomes  
> Hermitage Road.  Follow Hermitage to the stop light at W. Leigh  
> Street.  Turn right onto W. Leigh Street.  At the stop sign, turn  
> right onto Allen Ave., then turn right into the James River Bus  
> Lines' parking lot, across the street from the JRBL terminal.   
> Please do not park in the terminal parking lot. To get to Maggie  
> Walker Governor's School walk back to the intersection at Allen  
> Ave. and W. Leigh St.  The school is half a block east.
>
> If you need to deliver items to the Elizabeth Street entrance or  
> need handicapped parking,
> please plan to take the route from the South of Richmond or the  
> alternative route!
>
> Please DO NOT take the Boulevard exit if you are southbound on I-95  
> because you WILL NOT be allowed to turn left onto W. Leigh Street  
> from the Boulevard!
>

> may be towed!  Krogers' manager has informed us that they are  
> planning to tow anyone who parks there.

> prepared for delays.
