Your first game of the day is finding your way to Flamingocon.
The city of West Palm Beach has decided to give you a CHALLENGE to get to Flamingocon 5. Okeechobee Blvd will be closed at the railroad tracks, just west of the Dixie. Yay.
You can still use the Okeechobee exit from I95. But you will want to turn LEFT (north) on Tamarind, right before the Kravis Performing Arts Center. The problem is I am not certain which of the small roads then head east and will cross the tracks to get over to US 1 to get to the church. A safe choice is Clematis Street which definitely crosses the tracks and goes to US 1, then you would have to turn back south for about a mile to get to the church.
Use your GPS!
See map in this Palm Beach Post article for more details.
If you want to miss the downtown mess:
Coming from the north, get off at Palm Beach Lakes Blvd. (one exit before Okeechobee). Head east to US 1, and go south a few miles until Trinity Place, a couple blocks before Okeechobee Blvd.
Coming from the south, get off at Belvedere Rd. (one exit before Okeechobee). Head east to US 1, then go north until 2 blocks north of Okeechobee Blvd, which will be Trinity Place.
Hopefully you are all using your GPS.
A slower, more scenic option is to get yourself over to A1A, enjoy a leisurely cruise along the ocean, and then come over the Royal Palm Way/Okeechobee bridge from the island, and the church is right around the corner from there…
Address is 211 Trinity Place, West Palm Beach.

Plenty of questions still to be answered: Who are you bringing with you? How many games can you play in 11 1/2 hours? How long until the next Flamingocon? [approximately 6 months!] Can I buy flamingo rubber duckies at this flamingocon? [yes!]
