Enter the church thru the new Perry Avenue doors (108), take the elevator to the second floor, and go thru the double doors to room 215. You’ll have to ‘buzz in’ to the Perry Ave doors if you arrive after 7:00. A Club host will be at the doors to let you in until about 7:10.

The club meets September through May on the 1st, 3rd, & 4th Tuesdays from 7:00 to 9:00 PM.

  1. The description about the meetings state there are General, Competition, and Digital Processing meetings, but the schedule only reflects General meetings.

  2. A fellow member of Master Gardeners of San Diego County sent me your link. I am an amateur entymologist and photographer. I would very much like to get alerts on upcoming Nature competitions. Meredith French
