Follow first division road several miles. You wil lsee a fork in the road and you need to stay to the left. Dickman Field will be on your left. There will be signs posted along the way as well.

Please make sure you have your drivers license in order to get on post. Post access has changed and below is the procedures for getting onto post. Please make sure you use the 185 gate.

 Department of Emergency Services (DES) at Fort Benning are working with MWR to expedited gate access for all PRE-REGISTERED participants. The Sports Office will provide the Police with a roster of all pre-registered athletes to be checked off at the gate by showing their state issue ID card only. Those who do not pre-register will have to stop by the I-185 gate, drivers will have to provide their Drivers License, vehicle registration and proof of insurance, all other passengers will have to show their State or Federal issued ID Cards, and complete the necessary process. All ID Cards will be scanned which are automatically checked against state and federal data bases in helping to keep our bases secure, we want to be sure that everyone understands the new access control procedures and still considers participating in our sporting events.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
