No Event Parking

The U.S. Open golf tournament has been happening at Chambers Bay, and these signs are all over our neighborhood. On the whole we haven't been affected that much--they've been busing people in from park-and-ride spots as far away as the Puyallup fairgrounds, so traffic has been kept down to a manageable level. A lot of people left town for the week to avoid the anticipated chaos.

Chambers Bay has been closed to the public for a while, in preparation. We're all looking forward to having it back again. (It's going to take a while to get it back the way it was--I hear they paved the lower meadow.)

This sign is on the next block up from our house. I went out to take a pic of the one just around the corner, and discovered that the signboard was gone. Maybe someone snagged it for a souvenir?
