Some members have told me that they had trouble parking in the Venice area and ended up paying money to park in lots. There is tons of free parking available in Venice east of Main street and south of Sunset Ave. Those streets are free to park all day and you just have to walk 2-3 blocks down to the beach.
Please arrive at 10:45 am to help set up the field with the cones.
