Better Directions . . .

The best way to Vertex is the old standby Chesterbrook Blvd off of Rte 202.

Take Rte 202 Southbound.  After ValleyForge Road (Devon) and Rte 252 (Paoli),  Get off  at the Chesterbrook Blvd Exit.

Left at the top of the ramp.  Left at the light on West Swedesford Road Rte 252

Slowly make the sharp Right onto Old Cassatt Road ( it looks like a Driveway )

Left into the Vertex Complex,+berwyn,+pa&sll=40.064722,-75.456161&sspn=0.009131,0.019011&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=1031+Old+Cassatt+Rd,+Berwyn,+Chester,+Pennsylvania+19312&ll=40.062932,-75.456119&spn=0.009131,0.019011&t=h&z=16

Please note: No Handicap access. Meeting will be in building 1031 on the second floor, it is an older building with no elevator. An attendee with a physical disability should park on the north side of the building (side closest to Route 202) and then would be aided by fellow attendees up to the second floor. (Identify the 1031 building by its outline - the 2nd floor does not extend as far out as the 1st floor. Vertex will have volunteers to let attendees into the building and escort them up to the meeting room. )

Agile Philly friends - I am sad to report that a family obligation is now conflicting on Tuesday night. This will be such a great event and I'm sorry I won't be able to make it. If anything changes, I'll see you there. If not, see you October 7th! Emily
