Saturday was busy for the members of the Germantown Elementary School PTA. Parents and teachers spent the morning and afternoon shoe-horning cars into every square inch of space around the Annapolis school, handling the overflow parking from nearby Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. Saturday was Homecoming, and the football game drew a sell-out crowd, including lots of fans of Navy's opponent, the University of Pittsburgh. At $20 a car - $45 for a bus or a camper - it was a big payday, too. The PTA parks an average of 575 cars for every home game, but for Homecoming, as well as the Air Force game earlier this season, the number jumps to more than 850. They used to park more than 1,200 cars on Navy football Saturdays, said former PTA treasurer Kevin Chase.
