Zone 14 Meeting

February 22-23, 2019

University of Wyoming

Laramie WY

Laramie is about 2 hours north of Denver. My personal recommendation is to take US 287 from Fort Collins to Laramie: it is a prettier drive, more protected from winds, and shorter than I-25 to I-80 through Cheyenne.

Here is a campus map with relevant locations marked: map

An interactive campus map is available here: Map

Additional printable maps are available here: More Maps

If you are coming in Friday night, come visit our Planetarium and enjoy a show. Just say that you are will SPS and you'll get free admission!

We will meet in STEM 195 on Saturday morning. The STEM (Enzi) Building is on the north side of campus. Free street parking is available along 9th Street, just be sure to avoid areas signed as "Permit Only." There is a lot near Ivinson and 10th that should be free after 5pm and on weekends as well.
