Hmmmm....I don't know that he said there wasn't a limit on how many times we 
could use it.

Ermenrich -- did you ask that? That's been a stumbling block in the past that we 
can use places -- say, only once per month. I think at this point, that's 
actually what we were thinking: replacing the Corner Brewery meeting with this 
location. Remaining meetings would still be on campus. Unless I'm mistaken -- 
I'm sure someone will correct!

Ample parking, easier to get to for more people, including those in Ypsi, we can 
hear each other, and we don't have to worry about a limit on how many weeks we 
use it?
Brilliant! The person who came up with this has my compliments!
And, one last item to ask is whether there is a bus out there for any UofM 
Regardless, the advantages outweigh the potential ride sharing...
