Parents, Spectators, and Athletic Directors,
Thank you for coming out in support of your favorite Cross Country athlete attending Coginchaug's 33rd running of "Going to the Sun" Cross Country Meet. There are some very important things to know about this year's meet.
Please DO NOT arrive prior to 2:15pm.  Both our high school and middle school share a campus and our buses will need to vacate the properties before allowing other buses onto our campus.  
The main school entrance - Pickett Lane accessed off Main Street (Rt 17) will be closed so you will need to use the school's north entrance (see attached map), which is off of Maiden Lane. (Maiden Lane is directly off Main Street (Rt 17) just north of the intersection of Main Street & Rt 68). Travel east on Maiden Lane until you see the blue school sign on the right which approximately ¼ mile on your right. This is Pickett Lane. Stay on this road as it makes a turn to the right.
Buses:  Parking attendants will direct buses to the bus parking lot and will assist spectators to a safe parking area.  Buses will proceed past the tennis courts to park on the gravel area on the right. You will be met by parking attendants.
Spectators:  Please do not attempt to turn into Coginchaug Main entrance via Pickett Lane from Route 17.  Rather, please enter Coginchaug via the Pickett Lane from Maiden Lane.  Please refer to the arrows below.  Upon entering via the Maiden Lane / Pickett Lane entrance, parking attendants will direct spectators to the bus parking lot and will direct spectators to designated parking areas.  Please drive carefully, as runners will be preparing for their races.
