The location will be the Pearland Medical Plaza @ 10970 Shadow Creek Parkway, Pearland, TX 77584. Take the McHard Rd exit, the complex will be on your right.

Park on the extreme south side of the parking lot away from the building. We have not used this lot before. However, it's always wide open with few cars. Still due to not using this lot in the past we will have a back-up parking lot just in case.

Back-up Meet Location: Macy's parking lot @ 11200 Broadway St. (FM 518) #950 Pearland, TX 77584 (Pearland Town Center). This is only incase we get kicked out of the Medical Plaza. We don't think there will be any issues. However, we want to have a back-up plan in place.

- Car Wash: Houston Performance Driving sponsor Racer's Edge will be ready for those that want to get their ride cleaned before rolling out. The cut off time for the wash is 11:30AM. There location is is directly accross from the meet location @ 1970 Country Pl Pkwy Pearland, TX 77584.

- Safety Briefing: 15 minutes before roll out the HPD Staff will host a safety briefing on the South Coast Fun Run. It will be important for anyone going on the cruise to hear. This will be a 110% SAFE cruise. Please be SAFE, be SMART, and stay SHARP!!

In the past we've had so many cars that we created a log jam in their lot. Lake Jackson PD and DPS has to help us get out.

- San Luis Pass Toll Bridge: HPD has a system that will get +300 cars through the toll bridge in 15 minutes. Tolls are $2 for each ride. The system will be explained at the south side meet location. This system has worked many times for us in the past with zero issues. Please have $2 cash, this toll bridge is not a E-Z Tag controled crossing. Your Harris County E-Z Tag will NOT work.
