                               SOME FREQUENTLY VISITED LOCATIONS: 

Tuesday and Thursday night classes and occasional matches at

GEOTK, LLC  The address is  2313 E 2nd Street, Vancouver Wa 98661

It is behind and to the west of the Freddy's that is on Columbia House Boulevard. There are a bunch of wear-houses in this area. Here are the directions that are easiest to follow although it is a little round about.

  •  Go west on First street off of Grand. 1st is the east/west road on the north side of the Fred Meyer's complex.
  • This is a Loop Road
  • Geotk  is in the middle of the loop

Easiest way to get there is to continue straight on first to  the "T" and go right

Continue on the loop which will double you back going east, and you'll be on 2nd street

 The building will be on your right and is set back from the parking lot.

Across on the left side of the street and also back from the road is a 3-4 story building with a big VRSM sign on it. VRSM is a good and easy to see landmark.

You'll be turning right into Geotk Before you would actually get to the VRSM building

**Habatat for Humanity Re-store: 10811 SE 2nd St, Vancouver 

This is the Mill Plain exit off 205. It is on the west side of 205, just south by one block off of Mill Plain. I can't seem to get the map link to load so look it up yourself.

If you go west on Mill Plain and take a left at the first light, across from Wallmart and than a left again at the first intersection that should get you there. If you see a big used travel trailer lot that goes around the corner, you're there.

**Lowes at 1000 NE Wood Village Blvd, Wood Village, OR 97060

**Gresham City Hall 1333 NW Eastman Pkwy, Gresham, OR 97030

Ridgefield: **Abrams Park: Take the Ridgefield exit [i think it’s 14] off of I-5. go across the freeway and continue on Pioneer for a couple of miles, going through two [or is it three?] round abouts. After you hit the 25 mph sign continue till just past the middle school and turn right on 5th. Go past this side of the middle schools and the grade school to the stop sign at Division. It's a 'T'. Turn right and go down the hill and into the park. Look for my car. I'll be where ever there is the best shade. This is a safe place to leave cars open while we are working dogs, and there is shade as well.

**Lewisville Park  26411 NE Lewisville Highway Battle Ground, WA 98604

Directions: From I-5: Take Exit 9 at 179th Street. Drive north on NE 10 Avenue/SR 502 (located on the east side of and parallel to I-5) to NE 219 Street. Turn right. Drive east to SR 503. Turn left. Drive north 2 + miles to Lewisville park. Entrance is just past the bridge on your left. From I-205: Take the Orchards/ Vancouver Mall exit. Drive east on SR- 500, which eventually turns north and crosses Fourth Plain Blvd to become NE 117 Avenue/SR 503. Stay on this road to Battle Ground (8 miles). Continuing straight ahead, the park is located 2 + miles north of Battle Ground on the right side of the road.

Fairgrounds park: here are directions–take exit 9 off I-5 and go west. go left at the 2nd light west of the freeway which will put you on a road that goes between fairgrounds and freeway [Delfel]. Turn right onto 164th, it would be a dead end if you kept going straght. Storage facility on your left is a good landmark. Go maybe a mile and the park is well marked on your right. Up the hill.
