Because this is a public safety building, we will be expected to follow certain rules and restrictions. Meeting time will continue to be 6:30 PM. We must vacate the room by 9:00 PM. The meeting room is in the lower level of the building. There are restroom facilities are available on that level. We are absolutely not permitted beyond the lower level at any time. Bear in mind that the people enforcing this rule carry guns. Parking is available on the south side of the building, but do not park in the posted areas immediately adjacent to the building. These spaces ore reserved for official vehicles. From the parking area you will see a set of white double doors. These doors ore normally locked from the outside at all times. They will propped open with kick stops for our access. When entering DO NOT allow the doors to close completely as anyone following will be locked out. The meeting room is immediately to your left as you enter the building. The room has a coffee maker and microwave available, but we are responsible for cleaning up after ourselves. At the meeting conclusion, exit out the same doors you entered through. After the last person leaves we will undo the kick slops and allow the doors lo close and lock. You will find the room comparable to the Cutler facility in size and appointments. We ore very fortunate to have found such a suitable meeting place on such short notice, and the fact that it’s free is a bonus. If you have any questions call John Shimek (330-477-6224) or Bob Ulrich (330-479-9241).
Hope to see you there and if you have a friend or young one interested in the hobby, bring them along.
