Directions to the Event
The Central Maine FLL Qualifier is held at Searsport District Middle High School. The address is 24 Mortland Rd, Searsport, ME 04974. If you have Google Maps + GPS on your smart phone, clicking the Directions button in the map below will get you on your way! Otherwise, just about all roads to Searsport lead to Route 1. From the north, you'll want to take Route 1A/9 from Bangor, or Route 202 off of I395 to Hampden, then take a left at the traffic light, and a right at the next light to merge onto 1A. From the Downeast region, take Route 1 through Bucksport, Verona Island, Prospect, and Stockton Springs. From the south, take Route 1. From the west, take either Route 3 or Route 137 into Belfast, then take Route 1 to Searsport, the next town over. Mortland Rd is off of Route 1. You'll see the school on your left; you can't miss it.
Searsport Elementary School and Searsport District Middle High School are in the same complex. The MS/HS is the white building. Do not go to the red brick building.
The diagram below shows approved parking places for the event.
Bus drivers may drop off students in the 15 minute parking zone in front of the school. After that, they will proceed to the end of the driveway, and take a left to continue on Mortland Rd. They will then take a left onto the drive with the "Athletic Fields" sign in front of it, then stay left when the drive splits in two directions, and then a left into the designated bus parking zone. At the end of the day, they will go back onto Mortland Rd., and then take a right into the MS/HS parking lot, picking up students in the 15 minute parking zone.
Attendants will be on hand to assist visitors with parking. Visitors who park in the red zones or park for extended periods of time in the 15 minute parking zone may be towed at their own expense.
