    you are correct google maps is messed up in it's labeling of roads

    It is the First LEFT once you pass the Main lot on the left & and the Park Center on the right.

    or you can go into the main lot and take that road all the way around the ballfield.

    i put the end location on the shelter itself and google maps F'd it up from there...

    Monday's little league & soccer (Lacrosse in my case)

    Tuesday's conflicted with Donaldson Center roadie rides

    Wednesday's conflicted with the peeps who go to church


    Friday's weekend

    so thursday just seem to work for the majority so we have meetings on the 1st thursday of the month (typically)
