Other Reminders

1. PARKING: For those driving to the event, there is NO PARKING near the Recreation Center. If you need your car on Saturday and it is located in the Recreation Center parking lot, please move it Friday or before 10:00 a.m. Saturday. There will be no vehicle access to the Rec Center parking lot on Saturday (cars cannot leave or enter). No tailgating is permitted.

2. SAFETY: Security personal (from A.S.I.A. Security) will assist with the event. They will be checking bags, backpacks, coolers, etc. at the gate. Carleton staff and faculty members will also be present. Please be courteous and respectful to those involved in making Spring Concert a safe event.

3. FOOD: Food vendors will be selling food on site, including El Triunfo, Tot Boss food truck, and Hot Indian Foods food truck. Bon Appétit will be serving dinner 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. You will need your OneCard to access your meal plan - dinner is not free. If you are NOT on a meal plan, you may purchase dinner using Schillers - cash is NOT accepted. Remember, the dining halls will not be open for dinner on Saturday.

4. COMPOST/RECYCLE: All food vendors, including the dinner served by Bon Appetit will use 100% compostable materials (plates, forks, napkins, cups, etc.). The only exception is aluminum foil for burritos at the El Triunfo booth and soda cans available for purchase from the food trucks. Please place all dining items in the yellow bins labeled "Compost" and recycle your cans and foil in the blue bins labeled "Recycle."

5. FREE: Filtered water and Sno-Cones will be provided. The CSA water fountain will be available to fill your water bottle. This will help reduce costs and waste associated with purchasing bottled water. Students are HIGHLY encouraged to bring an EMPTY bottle to fill with water, as cups will not be provided.

6. CLEAN-UP: Throughout the day it would be WONDERFUL if people made an effort to clean up after themselves. This is an event coordinated in part by students, so help make your friends' lives easier. Every piece of trash you pick up counts!

7. INFORMATION: If you run across problems or have questions during the event, feel free to ask any staff wearing the navy blue Spring Concert t-shirts or visit the SAO Information Booth near the food vendors. This is also where lost and found will be located. Any lost and found items not picked-up on location before midnight, will be brought to the Sayles-Hill Info Desk on Monday morning. Items of particular importance (i.e., wallets, OneCards, room keys, cell phones) will be brought to Campus Security immediately following the event.

8. WEATHER: In the event of inclement weather, the show may be delayed or canceled. Lightening, tornadoes, and torrential rain are the primary reasons the show might be impacted. We're hoping for periods of sun, so bring sunscreen! If you forget, there will be some available at the SAO Information Booth.

9. SPRING CONCERT T-SHIRTS: There will be a limited amount of Spring Concert shirts available during a pre-sale online via Schillers. These shirts can be picked up the week of May 25.
