Important Note: Due to an event at a nearby church, the venue will have limited parking after 4:00pm on Sunday.

The school has two parking lots, one is at the signal at Imperial Hwy & Avenida Bernardo. The other is off of Imperial Hwy further up the street between the school and Canyon Hills.

Go on the 91 and exit on Imperial Hwy. If you are heading North, take a right. If you are heading South, take a left. Once you pass Santa Ana Canyon Rd, the school will be on the left. If you want to park in the lower lot, turn left at Avenida Bernardo. If you want to park in the upper lot, head up to Nohl Ranch Rd and make a U-turn or turn left on the way there.

At the School
From the Upper lot: Go towards Canyon High School and look for the music building. The building with the stage outside of it is the cafeteria. Go to the other side of the cafeteria and the door will be right there.
From the Lower lot: Go past the basketball courts and the pool. Keep walking straight and the cafeteria will be on the right.
Note: There will be signs put up directing you to the cafeteria.

SpeedCubeShop will be vending at the competition and sponsoring prizes for our winners!
