Thatís very good news. Congratulations on the new home. How does it measure up to the original location?

Mike, I haven't been in the new location yet, but everything I've heard is very encouraging: The new space is bigger, so the plan is to have wider aisles and expand some scenes, especially Troy and S. Troy since they will be most familiar to many visitors.

It's another basement, but it's a walkin in a newish office building. It's dry (If you take the virtual tour of the layout in the old location and tilt to view up you'll see a spagetti bowl of plumbing and heating and a plethora of gutters and various sheet materials and plastic drop cloths that tried (badly) to divert the leaks and condensation from the most critical areas of the layout. RPI had a crew finish off the new space to meet code and the general needs of the club. The only sketch I've seen shows an entry lobby and storage and workspaces adjacent to the layout room.

Since the crew lounge has gotten more views, I'll post future updates there alone.
