Lunch will run from 12:45pm to 2pm for individuals not competing in 3x3 BLD (1:30-2:00). There is a mall at Oak and King Edward that has a Safeway with a Starbucks. There is also a McDonalds, A&W, and bakery within reasonable distance.

Limited parking is available in the parking lot next to the gym. Additionally, Yorkhouse will have their parking garage open during the day. The access to the garage is on Alexandra Street at the corner of King Edward. You will then have to walk around to 26th to access the gym. We ask that people do not park on 26th street in front of residences. (This is very important.)
