04 - External Venue Map and Directions


The venue for the 2014 Mahoning Valley Robotics Challenge is:


4560 Falcon Drive

Austintown, OH 44515


There are numerous ways to approach the Austintown area from all directions.  Some include tolls via the Ohio Turnpike.  

We will provide reference directions only, presuming you will plan the best overall route to fit your needs.

Teams coming in on Friday are welcome to load in Friday night starting at 7:30 PM.  If you plan to load in Friday night, we would appreciate a heads up on when you plan to arrive.

 

·         Pull into the circle area on the south side of the building to drop off your stuff.  Once finished unloading, please pull away to make room for the next team.

·         Please note the following important detail.  A high school football game will be going on Friday night at the stadium to the East of the school building.  The game starts at 7:30 PM.  This will consume most or all of the parking near the building. 

o   There will be traffic cones blocking access to the load-in circle to keep football fans from parking there.  If an event volunteer isn’t there to move them out of your way, go ahead and move them on your own.  Please replace them when finished.  Giving us a ballpark time for your arrival will help us plan to have a person out there to greet you.        

o   There will be overnight trailer parking available in the area marked “Friday Night Trailer Parking” on the map.  Rest assured the construction shown on the map is complete, and there is an actual paved lot there now.  Blame Google Earth.  The 3-way intersection just northwest of the building is actually now the entry point for the parking area.

o   The overnight parking area will be patrolled by Austintown Police overnight.  You are of course also welcome to take your trailers offsite overnight and bring them back on Saturday. 

On event day, all of the lots closer to the event entrances should be available for team and spectator parking.  For any teams bringing trailers, please park them on the lot edges furthest from the school building.
