Travel along Hwy 22X until the first set of traffic lights, where you will take the yield South (right) that takes you into Lake Chaparral, and then at the MACS store intersection turn West (right) and continue along this road until you see all of the hustle and bustle of the transition area.

Going past the set of lights at Lake McKenzie Drive you will drive through the valley across the Bow River, and at the top of the hill you will see the set of traffic lights where you will turn South (left) onto Chaparral Blvd. Drive along Chaparral Blvd until you get to the MACS store intersection turn West (right) and continue along this road until you see all of the hustle and bustle of the transition area.

Parking
There is limited parking within the community of Lake Chaparral, and the resident's Board of Director's has requested that we have everyone participating in the event park along the cross streets and DO NOT PARK along the "main drag – Chaparral Drive" of the community leading into the lake. This will ease the congestion around the transition area, and make everyone's event much more enjoyable. We respectfully ask that you obey this rule, and hope it doesn't cause any inconvenience. We have reserved some handicapped parking within the parking lot of the lake should this be required, however this will only be allowed for thehandicapped.
