October 2016 General Meeting

Washington Apple Pi Photo Contest 2016 Results

October 22, 2016, 9:30 a.m., George Mason University

Slight change in building and room number: we will meet in Exploratory Hall, Room L003. That is Building #17 on the map below.

The Pi's 2016 Photo Contest result will be announced at the October General Meeting, with a critique of the photos, explaining what worked and what could have been done better. This promises to be a very educational event, allowing you to learn a great deal about your iPhone or iPod's photo capabilities, the available software for editing photos, and, of course, who won.

We will begin with our award-winning Question & Answer session, though the awards are (still) apparently lost in the mail.

Once again, we will attempt to stream the meeting over the Internet: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/wap-general-meeting.

The General Meeting will be in a different location from our usual abode: Exploratory Hall, Room L003, #17 on the map below, on the George Mason University campus in Fairfax VA. Check back closer to the meeting date for any updates or changes.

Important Parking Information: Two Options, Paid and Free

The Shenandoah Parking Garage (formerly the Sandy Creek Parking Garage because it is located on Sandy Creek) is fee-based facility. It is more convenient and closer to the meeting location. The Pi will subsidize the facility's parking fee by providing vouchers for donation request of $4.00.

If using the parking garage, park in Visitor's area; i.e., the lowest level. Take the elevator to the third floor (Campus Level), and exit along the sky bridge.

After the meeting, exit the garage using the exits marked for Validated Tickets. Your parking ticket goes in first. Then the validation ticket goes in next. If you have any problems, there is a speaker box for calling the parking lot attendant at the checkout point.

Free parking in Lot A

Park as close to Mattaponi River Lane as possible, then walk north along that road toward the main campus buildings. The sidewalk route takes you directly to the side of Enterprise Hall, on your left. The meeting room is located on the second floor, accessible via outside stairs or via an elevator on your right as soon as you enter the building through the doors behind the outside stairs. We will endeavor to have signs posted to help guide you to the right location. It is at least a five-minute walk from Lot A and up a slight incline. We will be using a golf cart along the route, to offer rides to those who want or need a lift.

Handicapped Parking: There are three handicap parking spaces next to Enterprise Hall that can be used by members, on a first come first served basis. Have your Handicap Sticker showing on the dashboard or on the rear-view mirror.
