We meet next to the Lakeside Pavilion of Pate Lake at Briscoe Park.

From I-285 go east (outside the perimeter) on Hwy. 78. Take 78 east past Rockbridge Road where 78 turns into a parkway rather than an expressway. About 6 miles after Rockbridge you'll get to Highway 124 (Scenic Highway) where you turn right and stay in the left lane. Turn left at the first light onto Henry Clower Boulevard and then turn right on Lenora Church Road. Briscoe Park will be on the left in about 1.3 miles. Turn left onto Sawyer Parkway into the park.

Briscoe is on the left about one mile south of Snellville. The park has three entrances. Enter at the Southern-most entrance between the lake and the nursing home. The Lakeside Pavilion is the first on the left. We will be in that area, before the pavilion, usually near a picnic table.
