Banquet Ticket Exchange: To ensure a smooth seating process, we have
initiated a Banquet Ticket Exchange.  After you purchase your banquet
ticket, bring it to the ticket exchange, where you will trade it in for a
ticket with a table number.  If you would like to sit with friends, gather
tickets and exchange them together.  Ten people can be seated at each table.
Exchange will be open Friday, 8 - 8:30 pm, and Saturday, 12 - 12:30 pm and 5

make a left and walk about 50 feet. Go out the rear doors and turn left,
walk about 4 steps and turn left again. The grassy area is right there the
cement area is a step down off the curb.  Please note, the cement is an area
where there may be service deliveries, so please listen and be careful.  It
is rather quiet on weekends. A lined trash can will be on the grassy area.
