>Directions to the Meeting
>Distance from Raleigh (17 miles) / Durham (8 miles) / Chapel Hill (12 miles)
> From I-40, take Exit 280 - Davis Drive. At the end of the exit ramp, take
> a right (North) onto Davis Drive. Continue straight on Davis Drive for
> about 0.5 miles. Take a right on Cornwallis road. Go about 1/2 mile, you
> will cross over railroad tracks. At the IBM gate keep to the right.
>If the rightmost gate is down, press on the intercom button and tell the
>remote guard that you are attending the WebSphere User Group meeting, and
>give him your name. He will open the gate for you. Go through gate, follow
>the road around past the first Tivoli Building, looking for signs leading
>to Building 500 or "Software Group." Our IBM host is Greg Ackerman - they
>may ask for his name.
>Go through gate, follow the road around past the first Tivoli Building,
>looking for signs leading to Building 500 or "Software Group." It should
>be the third road on the left. It can be a little tricky, so please allow
>some extra time the first time.

>You will see a visitors' parking lot. Turn in and park, and walk to the

>See http://www.rtpwug.org/sitemap.pdf for a map for this location.
>IBM Security now requires names and birthdates for non-US citizens. For

>countries (only) are asked to email name and date of birth ahead of time
