Dee has filled out a building request for the possibility of using Woodlawn School. There will be a course change due to the closure of North 2nd and Locust. Concern over the closure of the parking lots was expressed. Gene presented a proposed route starting and ending at Woodlawn School.

More discussion revolved around whether or not people think it would be too far to walk from south of the river or parking in the city lots downtown and walking to Woodlawn. There was more discussion to put on the entry form to allow plenty of time to park.
