Take a break from the heat and join us at the coolest place in town! We’ll hear from Jonathan Garard of Grooms Office Environments about workspace design and how changes in what we do at work means a need for change in how we do it. Take a look at a video from the Grooms web site.

We’ll have beer, wine, appetizers, good conversation and a great time. Please join us! Cost to attend is only $10, and you can pay when you arrive. If you belong to a tech organization, it’s only $5. Sponsors, teachers, and students are always free.


• Enter the Springfield Underground via the Southeast entrance off of Le Compte Road between Division and Kearney. There is signage from this entrance to our building. We are Building 25.

• There is a Guard Shack above ground at this entrance. Please let the guards know you are going to the Bluebird Underground Data Center. They’ll enter the Springfield Underground and follow the signs to Building 25. There is parking in front of our building for a number of cars. If the space near the entrance fills up, just park further up the road and walk down to the building.

• There is a second guarded entrance into Building 25. You will need to bring a government issued photo ID (driver’s license, passport, etc. ) in order to gain access to the Data Center itself. The guard will take your ID and give you a Visitor’s Badge so you can enter the facility. When you leave, give back your Visitor’s badge, and the Guard will give you back your ID. YOU MUST HAVE YOUR ID TO ENTER THE FACILITY. Unfortunately, there are no exceptions.
