Common Courtesy: Please be respectful of the environment and its inhabitants.  This is a multi-use facility open to the public and we will not be the only park patrons.  Sportif Coaching Group also would like to remind everyone that we all have a responsibility to leave the race course cleaner than we find it on race day.  All refuse should be discarded into appropriate containers.  Any rider found illegally discarding objects on the park grounds, the roads leading to and from the race course, and the on the race course itself will be dealt with accordingly (see USAC Rule 3B9, which states in part – ‘Riders may not discard materials that are not biodegradable; they may pass or throw such material to support personnel in places far from any bystanders [relegation or disqualification for littering or unauthorized feeding]).  Trash containers will be available for riders to use at registration.

Please also stay off and out of the existing campus buildings.  While some are active businesses, others are old and structurally deficient buildings that could pose a danger from decay and hazardous materials.  Plus, the ghosts asked to be left alone. 

Sportsmanlike Conduct:  The Chief Referee and the Race Director expect ALL spectators and riders to act like responsible adults.  Use of profanity and blatant unsportsmanlike conduct will not be tolerated.  This is a family friendly park and we are not the only users so please be courteous to all park patrons and staff.

Other Rules:  No alcohol permitted at the venue except where designated.  Pets are welcome but must be leashed at all times.
