We meet in the Rainbow Room at PARN. The outside doors stay unlocked until 5pm and there is a doorbell for PARN at the side entrance.

Our main entrance is at the side of the building (from the parking lot) and has stairs and an elevator inside. When you get to the second floor, please ring the doorbell so we can let you in.

You can also come in the front entrance, it says RBC and only has stairs. Please knock on our door so someone can let you in.
