Do we have to sit down on the shuttle... because that's a thing I can't do.

The shuttle will be making multiple trips. If you can't ride over in costume, then ride over on an earlier trip, change, then send your bin back. We'll store it in someone's vehicle.

Here are the final details, which I have added to the original post.

I am going to need one person who can remain at the parking/dispersal area after I head to the staging ground. Your job will be:
  • Give everyone your phone number so they can reach you.
  • Help direct them to the parking space and give them their parking pass.
  • Receive and store the bins coming back from the staging ground (I will give you my keys to my truck for this).
  • Ride over with the last shuttle ride.
Obviously, you will need to be in a costume that can move and sit down.

PARADE SCHEDULE

6:30 am - 7:15 am: Park and meetup at Parking Lot A at Nissan Stadium.
7:30 am - 8:00 am: Shuttle to Staging ground.
8:00 am: report time for our unit!
8:00 am - 8:15 am: Last shuttle ride to staging ground. EVERYONE MUST BE AT STAGING BY 8:15AM!

9:00 am - 11:30 am: Parade
11:30 am: Pack-up and ship out

STAGING GROUND
The shuttle will drop everyone off between 16th and 12th avenue.

The parade staging ground runs between 12th Avenue and 8th Avenue on Broadway. We will on the south side of the street with the other marching groups.


PARKING & DISPERSAL AREA
Parking will be at Nissan Stadium in Lots A as depicted in the picture below. InShuttle will be transporting us to the staging ground. The parade will end or "disperse" here as well.

If you will be suiting up at the staging ground, it is imperative that you be as early as possible so someone can run your bin back to the staging ground.


PARADE ROUTE
http://nashvillechristmasparade.com/spectators/parade-route
The route is roughly one mile, officially starting at 8th and goes down Broadway, up 2nd and then ends at the east end of the Woodland Street Bridge, right in front of the stadium.

Frak that is early!!! Fortunately I can come in costume easily enough. I will bring cash to pitch in towards the shuttle.

[crossposted to MSG]

I just noticed there are two Reys listed... which is fine, I'm battling a head cold right now and trooping in the early morning in the potential cold/rain probably isn't the best idea for me, so I'll just back out. Assuming I'm feeling better, I'll be doing Rey at the Preds game the next day anyway. A little bummed to miss this, but hopefully next time.

CHANGING & SHUTTLE INFO
InShuttle says that they would prefer that people sit for safety reasons, but that we can stand if we want. However, the woman I spoke with also said the bus driver can require people be seated if he/she wants. So I would assume the worst and plan on sitting down on the ride over. If this means you have to change at the staging ground, then here are your instructions:
  1. Arrive early and ride over on the first shuttle trip, which will be at about 7:15am.
  2. Put as much of your costume on beforehand as you can.
  3. The shuttle will drop you off and then head back to the stadium to pick up more troops.
  4. Be changed and in costume by the time they get back.
  5. Throw your bin into shuttle so Adam can receive it at the stadium.
The earlier the better. The last shuttle ride will be arriving around 8:15 at the latest. After the final shuttle ride leaves the stadium, there won't be anyone left to receive your bin. So your bin needs to be on its way back to the stadium when the shuttle is heading there to pick everyone up for the final ride.

GROUP PHOTO & AFTER PARTY
There is no formal photo planned. If time and space permit, we might do one at the staging ground, but most likely we will wait until the end of the parade to do it, probably by our cars, as most everywhere else is designated as float dispersal or balloon deflation areas.

I have not made any plans for lunch after the parade. Many of us will be heading to Clarkesville for Toys for Tots and/or the parade. But if there is interest, there are some nice restaurants downtown that we can get to via the Shelby street pedestrian bridge.

Hear hear, Thank you Matt!!! Really enjoyed it. And think the crowd did too.
Heard we got some good mention on one of the radio stations about being "her favorite part"!
