September Roundtable Meeting

09/03/09 - 09/03/09

Roundtable is a montly meeting of volunteers to further their program planning and training as volunteers.  It is a fun, upbeat meeting designed to give volunteers new program ideas and resources to make their local Scouting programs exciting and successful.  The roundtable will be held at Canterbury United Methodist Church. 

Directions:
 
·         If you are traveling on Interstate 65, get off at Lakeshore Drive exit and head east on Lakeshore (turn right onto Lakeshore if you were traveling north on I-65; turn left onto Lakeshore if you were traveling south on I-65). Stay on Lakeshore through the busy intersection with Greensprings Road/Highway. Go past Samford University on the left (north) and Brookwood Mall on the right (south). Stay on Lakeshore and it will become Mountain Brook Parkway at the intersection with Cahaba Road.
 
·         If you are traveling northeast on Highway 280 (towards downtown Birmingham), look for the Birmingham waterworks facility on the left (west) side of 280. Just beyond the waterworks facility, there is a stoplight for the Cherokee Road intersection. Move to the right lane as you approach this stoplight. Immediately after you go through the Cherokee Road intersection, move into the exit lane and take the first exit as you are going down the hill. This exit will take you to a 4-way intersection with a stoplight (Lakeshore Road is to your left, Cahaba Road is straight ahead, and Mountain Brook Parkway is to your right). Turn right onto Mountain Brook Parkway.
 
·         If you are traveling southeast on Highway 280 (away from downtown Birmingham) take the Lakeshore exit.  Turn right at the end of the exit ram onto Lakeshore Road and travel under the Highway 280 bridge. Turn right at the end of the exit ramp onto Lakeshore Road and travel under the Highway 280 bridge. Stay on Lakeshore and it will become Mountain Brook Parkway at the intersection with Cahaba Road.
Canterbury Scout Building
                You will drive a little more than 1 mile on Mountain Brook Parkway until you come to the first light, which is the intersection with Overbrook Road. Turn left onto Overbrook. Drive a few hundred yards and a turn into a parking deck will appear on your left. This is the Canterbury parking deck. If you kept going on Overbrook, you would pass Canterbury on your left and then Mountain Brook Jr. High on your right. If you do this, turn around.
                As you turn towards the parking deck, you will cross a short bridge. Do not enter the parking deck. Instead, turn left up the ramp to the top level of the parking deck; look for the sign on the side of the parking deck directing you to the left and up the ramp to the Scouting Building. As you enter the top level of the deck, you will see the Scout Building up the hill on your left. Drive to the far end of the deck and park your car there. You will see the narrow road that leads from the far end of the parking deck up the hill to the Scout Building. We ask that you walk up the road to the Scout Building unless you are brining equipment or other materials that are difficult to carry.
