All crew members must attend the All-Crew Meeting on Thursday, August 1 at Dock 32. You will get to meet other crew members, learn how to put up tents and canopies, talk on a walkie-talkie and maybe even drive a big truck. You will receive your crew t-shirts, event equipment and critical information about your specific role on the 3-Day®. Attendance at the All-Crew Meeting on Thursday is required for all crew members.

The All-Crew Meeting will last approximately 4 hours. Your crew assignment and check-in status will determine your exact individual arrival time. Please contact your Crew Captain to confirm your scheduled arrival time BEFORE finalizing your travel plans. Please note that there will be no shuttles on Thursday from the All-Crew Meeting to the host hotel. If you are in need of a ride, please contact your fellow crew members. There will be parking available for the All-Crew Meeting.

 

Thursday Night Host Hotels and Shuttle Transportation

Tickets for a shuttle bus from the Closing Ceremony to the host hotels can be purchased for $20 per person in the Main Street area of camp on Friday between 5:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. This shuttle will only go to the host hotels and is open to any participant who purchases a Sunday return shuttle sticker at camp on Friday night. You do not need to be a hotel guest. Please be aware that you can only purchase these shuttle passes on Friday night in camp; they will not be available for purchase on Saturday night.

Passes for long-term parking at 1060 W. 3rd St., on the west end of the Cleveland Browns Stadium, will be sold for $25 at the entrance of the long-term parking lot on Friday morning. You will receive a parking pass to put on the dashboard of your vehicle at that time. Only those participants who have purchased a long-term parking pass will be allowed to leave their vehicle for the entire weekend. Long-term parking is limited, and is on a first-come/first-served basis.

Tickets for a shuttle bus from the Closing Ceremony to the long-term parking lot can be purchased for $20 per person in the Main Street area of camp on Friday, 5:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. Please be aware that you can only purchase these shuttle passes on Friday night in camp.

Your friends, family and supporters should arrive at the Closing Ceremony site at least one hour early to secure a space by the stage that will give them the best view of the program. Please let your supporters know to allow extra time for travel and parking. We encourage them to carpool or take public transportation. Not only is it better for the planet, but it will help lessen traffic congestion for everyone.

The Participant Finish Area is closed to spectators.
