    Sometimes it is difficult to find members of the group at a popular event such as Guitars Under the Stars. I was not able to check out the location re. parking, exact location, or facility setup. So we will be playing it by ear. Lets plan on meeting near the front entrance between 7:00 and 7:15. I plan to get there by 7:00 and locate somewhere near the door (either just outside or just inside depending on temperature). To make it easier to find me I will be wearing a Santa hat (at least for a while). Shouldn’t be too many others wearing them yet. Also if having trouble I will have my cell phone (dumb – no texting) 240-5073. If you won’t be able to attend please change your RSVP before 6:00 so we won’t be looking for you. Bob

    When I looked at a map I saw a parking lot by the tennis courts on Polk Blvd. The parking lot is south of the tennis courts and the path to the Observatory is north of them. The Observatory looks to be only about 1,000 feet west of the tennis courts/parking lot.

    I have been to the Drake website and did not see anything about a shuttle from the Nationwide parking ramp to the Observatory...
    It would be an awfully long walk because where we are going is off Polk Blvd....I got an e-mail stating that we could park at NW...
    I think parking at NW must be for a different event?????

      I too am confused about the parking e-mails. So I sent a note to the originator asking about them. I will let you know If I hear anything. Information can be very useful for other meetups in the downtown area.
