DISCLAIMER #1. The primary target of this page are Magic players in the greater Fort Wayne area. Their main purpose is to support organized and casual play but also to be useful for the occasional visitor.
DISCLAIMER #2. Right now, this is mostly a c&p from a website; I'll edit it by and by.

Here are Driving directions to IPFW campus.  (In short, enter from Crescent Ave at the traffic light next to the pedestrian bridge, drive to the traffic circle, then park the car in the parking garage to your right and leave the garage through the back entrance. Walb Union is the building right behind the current construction site; take the first entrance, then the stairs to the ground floor, voilá, you found us!) Here is a campus map.  Walb Union is building no 9 on the map, the one the arrow points at; white areas on the map are buildings, grey areas parking lots, and the two grey areas with bolded outlines are parking garages; parking is free after 5pm.
