9:30 Set up time (Don't go earlier, the shop does not open
until 10:00.)
4:30 Clean Up Time (Don't stay late, the shop closes at
5PM.)  Please clean your area and return any
borrowed/unused supplies.
Parking:  Unload your vehicle then move the vehicle to
the adjacent parking area on the left of the building (when
facing the store).  The parking area is separated from the
store with a vacant lot.  This allows SOR to still have
parking for customers.
