The Hogback way comes in from a different direction. Huron River Dr. runs parallel to Washtenaw. If you take Hogback, you will turn right at the flashing light (Huron River Dr.). The convocation center is then behind the football stadium (turn right at the stadium).
If you come via Washtenaw Rd. and you like landmarks, there is a Cleary College and a Total gas station on the corner of Washtenaw and Hewitt. Turn left onto Hewitt. From this direction, the Convocation Center is just before the football stadium.
Have fun and good luck. By the way, I wouldn’t suggest venturing into Ann Arbor unless you have a) someone experienced with Ann Arbor, or b) a really good map. Ann Arbor can be a nightmare to find your way around. Although if you can find your way around, it’s one of the nicests cities around with an incredible amount to do.
: I just printed out the directions from the previous messages. The directions gives me Hogback Rd and it will be turning into Huron River RD. Which is it? or Is it just coming from a different way?
: : This topic came up earlier, but I was worried no one would notice the addition to the thread.
: : According to Eastern Michigan University, the competition will be held at the Convocation Center, NOT AT BOWEN FIELD HOUSE as stated in the FIRST manual.
: : Directions to the Convocation Center are as follows:
: : From US 23, take Washtenaw Ave. East (exit 37A) towards Ypsilanti
: : Follow Washtenaw about 4 or 5 miles to the stop light at Hewitt Rd.
: : Turn Left onto Hewitt Rd.
: : The Convocation Center is on the right shortly after you turn onto Hewitt. It’s a metallic green building.
