An in-person meeting to reserve the Durham Armory for the following year.
The meeting will take place at The Durham Armory located at 220 Foster Street, Durham, NC.
We do not have onsite parking. You must park in the parking garage or any available street parking. Please be mindful that you may have to pay to park.
To have the best chance of getting your desired date you should attend the meeting. We will not take reservations for the Armory via e-mail or telephone until after the annual scheduling meeting has concluded.
Most, if not all Saturdays are usually taken during the annual meeting. The best chance to get your preferred date is to attend the annual meeting.
Yes, but they will be required to:
Every client will be given the opportunity to pick a number. This number will determine what order you will be called to pick your date. If your date is already taken by either another client or Durham Parks and Recreation, you will need to choose an alternate date. We suggest you have at least 3 dates to choose from.
No. You must be registered in order to attend the meeting. Only one person per event will be allowed to register.
Yes, you will be required to pay the security deposit and application fee before leaving. If you cannot pay the security deposit and application fee, we will delete the reservation and open the date up for another client. All other fees will be due 45 days prior to the requested date of use.
You can reserve consecutive dates (ex. March 13 & March 14) at the same time.
You cannot reserve nonconsecutive dates (ex. March 13 & July 3) at the same time.
After all the numbers have been called, that will conclude the first round and the second round will begin. Numbers will be called in the same order.
Once numbers are being drawn, no new clients just arriving will be able to enter the room until everyone has drawn a number. After everyone in the room has drawn a number, new clients will be assigned the next number as they arrive. (ex. If 35 clients have drawn, the next person to arrive will be assigned number 36 and so on)
