PROJECT UNLOADING AND LOADING

Texas TSA Board has established a policy to have the Waco police ticket those vehicles that are in violation of the following guidelines. If this does not fix the problem then, the vehicle will be towed at the school's expense.

  • The night before contest unloading Only schools with an authorized pass from the state contest director will be allowed to enter the convention center that night.
  • Unloading – Friday 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.  NOTE: from 10:30am-Noon NO vehicles will be able to pull into the project ramp area due to Soap Box derby. You can still carry in project but vehicles will have to wait until derby is done.   – On a first come first serve basis, one school at a time will be allowed to back up to each ramp. If there is a vehicle at the ramp when you arrive, do not enter the ramp area. You must wait for the vehicle to clear, before entering the ramp area. Small items can enter the convention center through any side door. If congestion occurs at the ramp, all vehicles will be cleared to the adjacent parking lot to keep the ramp area free of vehicles.
  • Vehicles Must Be Identified – by attaching a 3 X 5 index card inside the window on the drivers side, just above the door handle, so that the following information will be visible from the outside: Drivers name, School name, City, Motel phone number. (Improperly identified vehicles will be ticketed and towed at the school's expense).

 

Loading Exhibit Hall doors will not be opened until after the 3rd general session Saturday April 16th;  Everyone must EXIT the Chisolm Hall so that the stage can be broke down. You can NOT start packing up any projects to leave until it has been cleared. Vehicles will not be allowed at the ramps during the loading period. The ramp area will be kept open. Properly identified participants will enter the Display areas from the any side entry of the Arena area and exit out the north end loading ramps for large projects and out the south entry for small hand carried projects. Students will have to carry projects (or use dollies) to their vehicles.
