Event info from Jim Elwood:

Hello Friends,

You are all welcome to my monthly open house Free Exchange party. I have settled on doing it the first Saturday of each month (except as noted). Even with a speaker, this is meant to be a low-key social getogether. Other friends are welcome.

I will provide some beer, wine, soft drinks and snacks. Pot luck and BYOB welcomed.

No charge, but donations welcomed.

The location is at the main entrance to the Park Merced apartment complex, off of 19th Ave. next to San Francisco State University.

By transit: From downtown stations (or from Balboa Park), take the MUNI M-line trolley to the SF State University stop. You’ll see the Park Merced entrance. My apartment is on the shallow left of the entrance circle. Walk past the front of the building and go to the inner corner - #6.

The 28 bus runs on 19th Ave and stops at SF State, if you are coming from the north or west parts of the city. The 29 Sunset bus also gets here

By car from north - Go 19th Ave past SF State and Holloway Drive, turn into Park Merced, go around the entrance circle onto Gonzalez Dr. park at first opportunity.. From East Bay or south - make your way to 280, get off at SF State exit. Go up Junipero Serra to Holloway, turn left, then left at 19th Ave. light. Park Merced is there.

Transit is recommended, but parking is relatively easy here.

Please RSVP.

Hope to see you!

    Very stimulating and allowed for interaction and he fielded intelligent questions with good non-defensive responses.
