Parking is terrible on weekdays, but my impression is that you shouldn't
have a problem on Saturday.
There appears to be lots of parking along Yarbrough Dr., which is not
really that far from Harrelson at all. I suggest turning into campus
near Lampe Dr, going it past the engineering area to drop off your
computer at the "front" of Harrelson, and then parking anywhere along
there or on Yarbrough. (see map)
I will also have a hand-truck thingy to help people carry in their
computers, although the distances really aren't that big.
