Cook Convention Center (Graduation Ceremony):

Caution: There is on-going construction around the areas described here so there may be detours.

For band buses and equipment trailer: Let someone off here under the porch to go inside and have security open the north side access doors for the equipment trailer and tow vehicle. The students can unload here and proceed to the upper level performance area. The equipment truck and buses proceed down Front Street and turn right (east) at the corner of the CCC. About half way down on the right (between the CCC and I-40 overpass) are large garage type doors. Security will open them and allow the equipment trailer to be towed right up to within 150' of the performance area just across the hall.

For folks attending the ceremony: Proceed down Front Street. Just before the corner is a parking garage on the right below the CCC. I believe it's about $3.00 to park. There are other places to park, but the garage is pretty safe and is recommended.

Cordova High School:

When leaving for home, if I remember right, it is easier to turn out of the school right (north) onto Bellevue Blvd., then left (west) on Union, then immediately get on I-240 north (right). Can anyone help me with this one?

Note to Pit Crew: The equipment trailer can park beyond the visitor's right-side end zone in the small parking area on or next to the grass. There is a cable strung all the way around the football field. Pit equipment will have to be lifted over the cable to be set in place for the performance.

Turn right on Van Hook Drive. Continue on Van Hook Drive about 1.2 miles. (You will pass underneath a railroad tressel.) Milan High School will be on your right. Take the drive lane to the right side of the school, then circle to the left just behind the school to the far (east) end and park there. Enter the building at the east end.

For marching competitions:
It is recommended to send a car ahead of the band to check about parking for the buses. There are two possibilities: 1) Turn right on Van Hook Drive. After turning onto Van Hook Dr. look for the third street on your left (just before the Pizza Hut). This is Barnum St. Turn left on Barnum St. This street will T-intersect at Baird St and the parking area should be straight ahead. 2) Stay on Hwy 45 and cross Van Hook Drive. Take the next right after Van Hook Drive and look for someone to park the buses.

Pyramid, The (Graduation):

1 Auction Ave, Memphis, TN, 38105, 521-9675

Note: you will need at least 2 rolling racks of music stands. You will probably also need the tympani, bass drum, percussion accessory box, marimba/xylphone or both, plus all the large instruments. Loading is non-standard due to the music stands, so you have to wing-it a bit. (Chairs are provided by the Pyramid.)

Caution: There is on-going construction around the downtown area so there may be detours.

When entering the front gate, the entrance guards may try to make you pay to park. The buses and equipment trailer tow vehicle should NOT have to pay. The entrance guards should direct the buses and equipment trailer to the back side (west side, nearest the river) of the Pyramid. The back side may have closed gates at either end, so be sure the gate security calls to have someone meet you to open the back gates.

The equipment trailer can be backed inside the Pyramid at the north-most garage door. Security should open the garage doors for you. You can back the trailer in to unload, but will have to pull it back outside the doors to park due to fire codes.

The students can unload the buses here. The buses will return to park in the main parking area. After the ceremonies are over, the students can load the buses in the same area they unloaded.

All the instruments and music stands will need to be taken to the far side of the floor area from where you unload the trailer.
