Parking / Robot Drop Off Info

Thank you for attending at the Rah Cha Cha Ruckus. Our committee wants to make sure your experience is enjoyable. We know that this venue has challenges when it comes to providing enough parking, so we would like to work with you to try to fit everyone in and still provide a good event experience.

Please listen to all parking volunteers. They have the thankless job of trying to get everyone parked at the event. Please be nice to them and listen to their instructions. Please be patient!

**The Rah Cha Cha Ruckus Planning Committee does not resume any responsibility for vehicles parked either on Armory property in designated lots or on public roads. All parking is at your own risk!

Leaving Procedure
  1. Determine if your vehicle is blocked in by another vehicle or not. If not, thank you and have a good night!
  2. If you are blocked in, please inform one of our parking volunteers or pit admin and provide them with your parking pass number. They will inform the parking volunteers and they will work to contact the volunteers that are parked around you to see if they can move those cars.
  3. Please be patient because the volunteers that you need to have moved may be involved in critical event activities and can’t drop everything to move their car.
