Club President Dave DeBois announced to club members that board members are continuing research on several possible meeting venues. The most promising continues to be the Courtyard by Marriott, with which the club has made arrangements to hold in-person meeting on Nov. 1 and 8, 2021. Food choices and introductory costs have not been announced.
Board members have also engaged in discussions with Tech City Bowl, at 13033 NE 70th Place in Kirkland, although this venue does not have a separate room for meetings. Additionally, board members are discussing options available from the Wilde Rover, at 111 Central Way in Kirkland, although staffing issues there would require us to shift to a Wednesday meeting and there is some concern about the cost and proximity of parking. President Dave also noted that discussions have been opened with The Heathman Hotel staff, at 220 Kirkland Avenue in Kirkland, about options that may be available at that facility.
The Courtyard by Marriott is located at 11215 NE 124th Street in Kirkland, which is west of I-405 at Totem Lake, and on the south side of 124th across the street from the QFC. Club membership will be presented more information and options in anticipation of a membership vote on a new venue in the near future.
