There was a question about using spiral tent stakes, similar to that used to secure a dog chain. This does appear to be an issue at Vilas Park, please plan to secure tents using sandbags.
Bathroom facilities for athletes are available in the shelter by the beach. There will be extra port-a-potties near the parking lot for spectators and athletes. Potable water will be available.
Garbage must be bagged and placed next to the large, handicapped porta-potty located next to boat storage. There will be two large green bins on wheels for anything recyclable.
