As mentioned on the call we have some challenges this year on two fronts: #1 the enormous amount of snow that was dumped this week, and #2 the record breaking number of participants who plan to attend the jump.
We had to think creatively about parking, as the town police have made it clear that the snow is blocking access to the curb so that no cars will be allowed to park there. SO here is the plan.
There will be TWO registration areas. The first will be AT the jump (at Berean Park on Reservoir Road in Highland) and the second will be at the Alzheimer’s Association Poughkeepsie office at 2 Jefferson Plaza in Poughkeepsie.
ALL GUESTS TO THIS EVENT SHOULD CARPOOL to cut down on the number of cars coming to the jump. Cars should first stop at Berean Park at 9:30 to drop off the individuals in their car as well as tents and supplies. We will have volunteers at the jump area to check everyone in and to assist with tent setup.
The DRIVER should then proceed over to the Poughkeepsie office (which is four miles away, just over the Mid Hudson Bridge at 2 Jefferson Plaza). Maps will be provided by the volunteers who are at Berean Lake if anyone doesn’t know the way.
Once at the Poughkeepsie parking lot, the driver will proceed inside the building and be checked into the event by a volunteer at our office on the first floor (suite 103). A large coach bus will depart with the first batch of event attendees at 10:30, the second batch will be picked up at 11:00 and the third at 11:30.
In this way I’m hoping to have everyone at the event by noon.
The bus will be on hand to bring event attendee drivers back to their cars starting at 1pm.
