Editor’s note:  I went to the web site to get a printable map for you all, and from TWO different devices, some weird malware popped up trying to tell me my computer was infected with something “click here” sort of thing.  It happened on a Apple product as well as my laptop which is an HP.  So, sorry, I don’t have a map, I am sure they are avail at the event!  See you all there! -JAP-
