A few helpful tidbits on Nashville –
“Meals on their own” – the students will be stopping at a local food court mall via bus on day of arrival / day of return near Atlanta. This will give them plenty of options for meals on travel days. Itinerary that Ron sent previously is also attached here.

General Competition Guidelines
Programs ($5.00) and a select number of event t-shirts ($20.00) will be available for purchase during the competition. These items usually sell out quickly so we encourage you to purchase them early. Once programs are sold out, only copies of the performance schedule will be available.
Doors to the Opry House lobby will be open approximately 60 minutes prior to the beginning of competition. Doors to the theater will open approximately 30 minutes prior to the 1st performance time. Doors will open to the lobby and theater at 7:00 am Friday morning ONLY. All seats are General Admission, there is no reserved seating.
Concessions are available in the lobby of the Opry House during each performance day.
No person may enter the Opry House from the Stage Entrance unless part of the stage set-up crew.
No one will allowed to enter or exit the theater during a group’s performance. This is a distraction to the performing groups, adjudicators and other spectators.
