LOGISTICS FOR DEMONSTRATING NEAR HUNTS POINT AND 520 ON 8/22

For those who have expressed a desire to direct their messages to President Bush and his supporters and for those who want to banner the right of ways before the event here is some information about the area.

Address of Bush luncheon: 3858 Hunts Point Dr (84th Ave NE over 520 and straight to Hunts Point Dr.(1st stop sign & dead end sign) turn right to address on right / east side.

Time of Luncheon:

Doors open at 11:30 A.M.
11:45 A.M. Host committee Reception
12:00 P.M. Luncheon

Parking near Hunts Point overpass/entrance: south of 520 on Points Dr east of NE 28th ST & 84th Ave NE (east of Tulley's on south side of road).

Parking near other 520 overpasses:

Park & Ride at Evergreen Rd and 28th St

Fairweather Park north of 520 on Evergreen Pt Rd and NE 32 ST (a trail runs along the north side of 520 which may provide vantage points for signs/banners)

Several small Park & Rides along Bellevue Way/Lake Washington Blvd and South Kirkland Park and Ride on 108th Ave NE north of Northup Way with good bus access.

Most Park & Rides fill up very early so we also need some good drop off points in the event we want to drop off people with signs/banners and pick them up later.

Drop Off Site:

92nd Ave NE (Yarrow Pt Dr) just north of 520 on left/west side of street. Plenty of room also has access to trail.

Kayak Launch: (in case some of our Paddlers for Peace want to launch a flotilla)

NE 42nd ST off 92nd Ave on Yarrow Point north of 520. Public launch, but, very tight maneuvering and NO PARKING.

Better locations may be available along the Kirkland waterfront.

I'm so sad I cannot be in Seattle to protest Bush! Just wait till next year, though! Give 'em hell, people! Let's dump Bush. He is soooo evil; I am soooo mad at him.
I'll see you at Columbia Park!
GET OUT OF IRAQ NOW! gk.
