O-A/BC-IG football game parking tips
Fans attending O-A/BC-IG home football games this season are advised that parking will take on a new look.
All parking areas that have been used for parking in the past will be available with exception of the field north of the high school parking lot. The field is closed due to the construction of the ball field complex.
School officials say their number one request would be for fans to car pool if possible.
Once the spots in the high school parking lot and along the road to the parking lot are taken, fans may park on the road south of the football field. There will be a ticket booth available at the south gate (near left field on the baseball diamond).
Additionally, Horn Physician Clinic has agreed to allow fans to park in their lot, with shuttle bus service available up until game time.
If you have questions on parking availability, call the high school at 364-3371.
