If you have questions you can contact me at 937-433-3414 (P) or 937-369-1222 (C).  The location of UDNA new facility is located just Northwest of the I-75 and Austin Road interchange.  Suggest that you use Google or Waze to chart your course to the UGNA facility since the actual building is not shown on Google Map and is barely one year old.  Remember that Daylight Savings Time will change on Sunday, 3-Nov ’19 and it may be difficult to find UGNA in the dark without GPS assistance.  Remember the tour starts at 6 PM, it shouldn’t be totally dark by then, but close.  You have been forewarned.  If you find yourself having a beer at BW3 or  BJ’s Brewhouse, you are on the WRONG side of the I-75 & Austin Road interchange.

Regards, Bill Brownsberger, SME Chapter 18.
