Transportation and Parking

Lovett has very limited visitor parking right now because of major construction; in order for our facility people to sleep at night (and be nice to all of us) and for you to have a relaxing and enjoyable day with us, please read and complete the following information:

Local Schools (Westminster, Walker, Trinity, Woodward and GAC)
We are asking that all local schools carpool in ONE vehicle per team. I know this gets cozy, but look what we're doing for the environment! (smile) Please fill in the table below indicating you've read this and will be able to support this request.
School Name
One Car Agreement (yes or if no why and # of cars)
Greater Atlanta Christian
no - we have one person who will have to leave a little early to pick up his child; we will need 2 cars
Trinity School
No, we will have 2 cars. One member must leave early.
Woodward Academy
Main campus teams will have two cars. (One car per team).
Woodward North
Possibly two cars -- one team member lives very far from everyone else.

Out of Town Schools (This means everyone other than the local schools.)
We are planning to shuttle out of town participants from an off-campus site to the school. Currently, we plan to have all teams meet at the Doubletree Guest Suites at 8:00 a.m. (whether staying there or not) for an 8:15 departure to Lovett. The Lovett shuttle bus will return everyone to this location departing Lovett at 3:00 and arriving at the Doubletree at 3:15. Please indicate below where your team is staying and if you will be able to get to the Doubletree for a shuttle, or if you need to make other arrangements.

Additional Guests

We certainly welcome and encourage those of you who would like to have an administrator join you for this kickoff meeting. Lovett can manage a few additional people, but our room set up and parking issues (obviously) require that we limit the number of additional attendees. If you are planning to bring someone other than your team members, team leader, or fellow (as relevant) please indicate so below. We will do all that we can to accommodate these requests! (Administrator support and understanding is vital to your success in this program.)

Special Needs

If you or one of your team members requires any kind of special assistance, we would like to know. Please email me if there is a transportation, health, or dietary restriction (or special dietary request). As for our lunch, we are planning on a make-your-own sandwich setup with meats, cheeses, tomato, lettuce, and condiments accompanied by fruit, chips, dessert and water/soft drinks. Breakfast will be bagels and muffins, coffee, and water.

Technology Support

We are outfitting one of our small gymnasiums with extra wireless airport hubs, ethernet connections for Will and Sheryl, and power strips at every table for charging laptops. We will do our very best to keep everyone "online" but as you know sometimes technology works in your favor and sometimes it doesn't. Our IT folks will be around and on-call for any specific issues. We do encourage everyone to bring a laptop if possible.
