III) Parking:
Follow the instructions of Parking Officials to-the-letter!

That means, each morning you will be required to remove your equipment and gear from Boaz buildings and secure in your vehicle. You will not be allowed to reestablish your camp site until after the night game Saturday. It is highly recommended that you camp on TA50.
When you arrive – tell Parking Officials you are a camper – they will direct you to approved camping location. We try to put the campers away from the traffic areas to reduce dust on your gear.
Trash cans will be provided by staff. Please pack out what trash you can. We have to haul this stuff off.
Be respectful of all ft hood property.
It is a privilege and honor to be their guests for the weekend.
Thank the marines – they are our gracious hosts.
