Officials planning the memorial service for Coach Don Meyer are advising attendees to plan ahead as a large crowd is expected and heavier than usual traffic and demand for parking around the Northern State University Barnett Center will require extra time.
Parking will be available at the Barnett Center north parking lot. Once that is filled, alternative parking will be available in the Jerde Hall parking lot across the street from Barnett as well as in the adjacent Johnson Fine Arts Center parking lot. Parking will also be available across campus in the west student lot along Lincoln and Washington Avenues.
In addition, a live video stream of the memorial service will be broadcast from the Barnett Center. The feed can be accessed at http://client.stretchinternet.com/client/northern.portal#. The site will go live at 2:30 p.m. Saturday with the service scheduled to begin at 3:00. Users will simply click on the “Watch” link during the broadcast to watch the event.
The video stream and tech support are being provided complimentary by Stretch Internet, the company that broadcasts regular season athletic events for Northern State University.
Out of respect for the family, the general public will not be permitted to use hand-held cameras and/or smart phones to take photographs and capture digital images of the memorial service. Video recordings by the general public also will not be permitted.
