The University is located at 5400 Ramsey Street, Fayetteville, NC 28311. If asked, the gate guard will provide directions to the Hendricks Science Complex. We arrive around 7:00 PM for the meeting, which starts promptly at 7:30 PM.
We also meet informally on Saturday mornings for breakfast and fun at K&W Cafeteria - A family-friendly cafeteria chain offering traditional American meats, sides, breads & desserts. Many of the CFARS members showup for breakfast, starting when they open their doors at 06:30 a.m. Some folks don't get there until a bit later, but there are usually plenty of folks to visit with.
