Important Directions Info:

When you turn onto Learman Road, the driveway entrance is on the right about 100 yards after you turn onto Learman.  There is a big wagon wheel at the entrance to the driveway.  Ignore the GPS when it tells you to go 1/4 mile and the location will be on the left!  The GPS is lying to you 🙂.  When you turn right at the wagon wheel, follow the driveway up until you see buildings.  The meeting will be in the metal sided barn, which is the first building on your right.  It is fine to park anywhere on the grass.
