The meeting will be held at The National

Table Mesa Drive in Boulder, which is located
on the west end of Table Mesa Drive, up
the hill, right under the Flatirons. For
door-to-door driving direction, go to MapQuest
), click on Driving Directions, enter your
starting address, NCAR's address, and voila!
Park in the NCAR lot, go in the main door,
and ask the guard to point you to meeting,
which is held in the main auditorium, right
off the lobby. The meeting is free and open
to the public, but we may pass the hat to
help defray expenses. Our meeting location
seats about 120 people. That is usually
enough room to accommodate all attendees,
but it's impossible for us to predict how
many people will show up for any given meeting.
Seating is always on a first-come, first
serve basis, and in the event of more attendees
than seats, we won't be able to admit additional
people into the auditorium after all seats
