An in-person meeting to reserve the Durham Armory for the following year.
The meeting will take place at The Durham Armory, 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 this is pay parking.
We recommend setting aside 2 to 3 hours for the meeting. It takes a while to go through all the numbers in order, set up all the reservations, and take payments.
We will not take reservations for the Durham Armory via email or telephone until after the annual meeting.
Most, if not all Saturday's 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, only one representative from each party will be allowed to draw a number. If we find that anyone has violated this policy, those individuals will be removed from the process. Seating in the lobby is limited, so please do not bring large groups or children who need supervision. Spanish translators will be available to assist anyone who needs an interpreter.
Yes, you will be required to pay the security deposit and application fee before leaving. If you cannot pay the fee, we will remove the reservation and open the date up for another client. All other usage fees will be due 45 days prior to the requested date of use.
You may reserve consecutive dates (ex. Friday for a rehearsal dinner and Saturday for a wedding or you could reserve both Thursday and Friday for a concert that takes place on two consecutive evenings). We will not allow groups to reserve multiple dates if they are not consecutive (ex. hosting a concert in March and then another in June). For clients wanting multiple dates, you will only be permitted to select one date at a time per turn.
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 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)
