Parking will be scarce as usual at Dodgen. In addition to the usual lack of space we have construction continuing. Please be mindful of the equipment. We have three groups coming to Dodgen at various times throughout the day. Please be courteous to others: do not block others in (no more than two deep anywhere!) and depart at the specified times so that others may attend Panther Day.
