DIRECTIONS TO BRAUNSTEIN HALL AND PARKING

The meeting are held in Room 201, on the second Floor of Braunstein Hall (formerly known as the Physics Building). 

If you park on College Ct., Braunstein Hall is the building immediately on the right. 

You can enter Braunstein Hall from the right side of the building (first  floor), or from the front of the building (third floor) or on the ground floor from the back at the loading dock (faces College Ct), or  There is no parking in the front of the building, but drop-offs are possible if you drive through the main UC entrance and proceed left.   The rear loading dock provides an elevator to the second floor.

We recommend you enter from the right side of the building if you are parking on College Ct. At the time of this writing, the door knob is removed and so you must press the big "Handicapped" button on the wall behind you to cause the door to open. This is the first floor. Proceed up the stairs to the second floor. The meeting room (201) is the first classroom on the left. The first set of doors to the room enters the rear of the classroom. Use these doors after the meeting begins to avoid drawing attention to yourself. The second set of doors can be used to enter the front of the room, where you can sign in and get a name tag.

The beginners classes are most often held on the third floor, one floor above the general meeting room. See the bulletin for the specific room number for each beginner's class.

Parking Passes:
Parking passes are available at the meeting to paid-up members and must be placed on the dashboard visible from the driver's side windshield. If you are not a dues-paying member and do not intend to pay your dues at the first meeting, use the metered spaces on College Ct or park on Clifton Ave to avoid getting a ticket from The UC parking patrol.

Meetings are usually held on the fourth Friday of Jan, Feb, March, April, May, Sept, Oct and Nov.. The November meeting is often held a week earlier to avoid Thanksgiving weekend.  We have a holiday dinner with the Cincinnati Mineral Society that includes a feature speaker. We sometimes meet with the Kentucky Paleo Society in June or July for a picnic meeting which includes a field trip.
