We will have a room for the board meeting from 12:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. For those arriving by train on the Piedmont, walk across the street from the Amtrak station and catch the CATS #11 bus to downtown at 10:14 a.m., 10:30 a.m. or 10:45 a.m., if the train runs a little late. Fare is $1.50 one way, and you can transfer to light rail (ask the driver). Get off at 7th Street and North Tryon Street near the Rock Bottom Restaurant.

After the meeting there should be time to ride the Lynx Blue Line to I-485, and return to 7th Street.
