Driving Directions

The Cal Fed Savings & Loan building is located at 2350 Honolulu Avenue, in the city of Montrose, pretty close to the junction of the Glendale Highway (2) and Foothill Freeway (210).

Parking is available just behind and alongside the bank, as well as on the main and side streets. Please take note of posted time limits, and be ready to move your car if necessary! Note that the Montrose Art Walk will be taking place this weekend, so parking may take a little work, or be a little walk. If you've got a lot of games to carry, you should be able to unload them near the entrance to our meeting room, then park your car.

Please enter through the rear door of the bank to go down to the basement meeting room.

Click either map for an interactive version.



Here's the front of the bank.


And here's the back. Games Day is held in the basement Community Room, which you enter via a stairwell and doorway back here.


Spread the word!

Announcements for Games Day are placed online where boardgamers are often found (rec.games.board, Consimworld, spielfrieks). Want to help out? Tell your boardgaming friends about Games Day, because word-of-mouth advertising is the best way to bring in more local gamers.
