Where exactly is the entrance to the venue if it has changed? 

Will there be visitor off street parking as in past years?  Where will that be?   

Given that 1st ave is closed in part, what will be the best cross town route for those coming from the east?  Grandview/12th Ave to Cambie and then north to Pacific Bvd exit. 

Thanks.

The lot to the west of Carrall street appears to be about the same size as the original location.  If you look at Google earth's pic, the long rows of greenery are all gone.  I think there should be space for spectator parking, however, it's up to the organizer whether there will be space allocated.

and Special Thanks to the fine folks of Zündfolge, Strictly German, Dub Allstars, LGK, Kevin @ Bulli Boys... Melissa who always works to get Westjet involved.... plus all the other people who help out to make the weekend what it is.   Too many to mention, but you know who you are, and we appreciate all you efforts. (thanks as well to kahiko kula for making the trek north!)
