CAPT will meet in Raleigh on Monday, June 23rd. The meeting will be held from 12:00 - 4:00 p.m. at the Golden Coral Restaurant located at 6129 Glenwood Avenue. Lunch, which will be "Dutch Treat", is from noon to 1:00 p.m. The phone number for the restaurant is 919 523-2822. The only requirement the restaurant has on our using their meeting room, is that everyone eats lunch as part of the meeting.

For those arriving via Amtrak's Carolinian, a local contingent will meet you at the Amtrak station. I would ask that as many of you that can, please join us at the station and help transport those arriving by train to the restaurant and return at the end of the meeting. Your assistance here is greatly appreciated.
