Although I'm obviously biased for meeting at Rackspace.. I must say... I've 
NEVER had a single issue with parking at SAC (except for the dark days of 
construction which are now over).. and I've been attending (as the XCSSA 
president.. well.. since we moved to SAC from the Balconnes Heights community 
center over 8 years ago.. and that's like 96 meetings straight (minus one or 
two hear or there).

But Peter also makes a good point about Rackspace parking.. folks should keep 
in mind that the entrance check is a small price to pay, as the added security 
keeps local thugs out of our lot, and out of your dash so that we can all 
enjoy the meetings, worry free. ;) Especially for you mobile Ham rig guys.. :)
