Mardi Gras Tournament Information

Dear Colleagues, welcome to the Mardi Gras Policy Tournament.

My contact number is 337 849 7487.

Registration is in the Lobby of the Crowne Plaza on Pinhook, from 5:00 to 8:00.
I would prefer to get registration over with as quickly as possible. The Krewe
of Apollo Parade begins tonight at 6:00 p.m. (Parades last from 2 to 3 hrs)

All rounds will be held in F.G. Mouton, 1st and 2nd Floors. Directions From the
Crowne Plaza: Take Pinhook East to St. Mary. Turn Left onto St. Mary.  Go down
about five blocks.  At the third stoplight you will see the University Library
(it has big concrete spheres around it). Turn right on to Hebrard Blvd. On your
left at the fist stop sign is Moody Hall (the Business Building). F.G. Mouton is
directly behind Moody Hall.

You can park anywhere along Hebrard. If you stay for a parade, when you exit
Hebrard, you take a left back onto St. Mary to get you back to Pinhook. Or, you
can take a right onto University Ave. This will also take you to Pinhook. You
can also get to Hebrard from University Avenue. We recommend that YOU DO NOT
take Johnston St. for any reason this weekend. This is the parade route. It is
almost always either blocked or congested.
