We’ll meet at 7:45 a.m., ready to depart at 8:00 a.m., at the South Hill Park-and-Ride, 9th Street SW and 31st Avenue SW (formerly known as 94th Street SW & 104th Street E – the City of Puyallup recently incorporated this area, hence the new street names and confusion).  This is the Park-and-Ride on the North side of Hwy 512 and we’ll meet in the northwest area of the lot, look for the red Ford Explorer.  Carpools are encouraged but are not assigned or required.
