We are looking forward to seeing you all at the tour tonight.  Please be sure to arrive promptly at 4:30 at the main entrance to the Agriculture Building (facing the Embarcadero) to the south of the Ferry Building.  Due to the size of the group, they are going to split us up into groups with each group being led by a WETA staffer and/or contractor representative.  Upon arrival you will be directed to a particular room where your PPE and tour guides will be waiting.   They may be a little short on PPE, so if you do have your own hard hats and vests, please bring them. 


There is a chance of rain tonight.  The tour will take place rain or shine so be sure to bring your own rain gear.  They will not have any onsite.
