If anyone took a great trip someplace and can’t limit the number to 20, contact Jim via E-mail at [email protected] so he can work something out with you. Please also contact Jim on how to send the photos to him using E-mail, Drop Box, or your personal Cloud.

DIRECTIONS: Take Camp Bowie and turn north onto Clifton St. (first street east of Montgomery). Take the first parking entrance north off Clifton that is on your left (west) side. (There will be a parking attendant structure as you drive in.) Park anywhere, even spots marked “reserved” as our meetings are outside of normal school hours. Enter the RES building ground floor at the northwest corner of this parking lot, turn right and go down the hall keeping the south-facing windows on your right. We’ll be in the first lecture hall you come to, with a prominent FWAS sign.
