We've been through several relocations in our 3 year history, and
easy highway access was always listed by the members as an important
consideration.  (Sadly, all SPUGsters aren't willing to ride their
bikes or take three buses to get to our meetings. 8-})  

So there was nothing arbitrary about my focus on this factor, despite
my coy phrasing of it as an "IMHO" factor.  FYI, I'm attaching a
copy of the "venues desiderata" file assembled through a member survey
last time we went through a relocation.

Perhaps; can somebody with connections there look into this?
