Update 1/17/20 2:45 PM
We are monitoring the Second Amendment rally at the Capitol continuously, staying in close touch with local law enforcement and dialed into area alert systems. At this time, we have been told not to expect activity around the convention center and have been assured by the Richmond Police Department that every precaution has been taken to contain the rally. Extra security will be closely monitoring the convention center entrances, and those entrances will be limited. The convention center parking deck will be limited to volleyball participants. In addition, we have multiple armed security personnel, including a Richmond police officer at the entrances. In the event, the situation changes, we will re-evaluate and make any necessary adjustments to the tournament.
Road Closures and GRTC Bus Detours Due to Second Amendment Rally
A rally is planned for Monday 8am-2pm at the Virginia State Capitol. While an unknown number of participants are expected, we do not anticipate impact to the area immediately surrounding the convention center. The link below shows road closures so that you may plan your travel accordingly. The convention is reserving their parking deck for volleyball participants and will post signs at the entrance. The convention center and RVC have met with law enforcement to minimize impact and we have taken the step of adding additional security .
