to Mistrial Moors
Directions Go north on I-35 untul you reach the Norman city limits. Take
the Lindsey St exit East (this should put Christy's Toy Box and a Schlotsky's
on your right-hand side), and follow Lindsey past the OU campus. If you get
lost on Lindsey, just pull over and ask anyone for directions to campus. Pass
through campus with the dorms on your right and the grain-throwing-statue-guy
on your left. Now, since there is construction going on right down the street
from our field, I'm going to have to give you a bit of a run around...but I
swear it's not too bad! Take Lindsey east until you reach Classen, and take a
left. Just a short distance down Classen you'll come to a light at the
intersection of Classen and Brooks, take Brooks to the left and you'll be
almost to the field. Looming down the street is all the construction and the
stadium, and we're in the park to your left-hand side. You should see us out
and fighting (or sitting around the picnic table talking.) Just park in the
adjacent parking lot and come see us! If you get lost, just ask for directions
to the Duck Pond on the OU campus.
