NOTE CHANGE IN MEETING LOCATION - Longview Country Club


LCFF Board voted to hold meetings at Longview Country Club’s Card Room.


Please feel free to “come as you are” as the Country Club has relaxed its dress code to welcome jeans and casual attire. About the only dress standard the Club requests is a collared shirt. Food and beverage will be from the menu and one can expect somewhat higher cost than the Carriage, though there are many options that are reasonably priced.


Address for Longview Country Club is a short road just off Pacific Way at 41 Country Club Drive. If you haven’t been there before, the entrance is first right after you cross 30th avenue interchange when coming from downtown or Kelso on Pacific Way. Keep going up to the end of the short drive (there are a couple houses on either side as you approach the Country Club). A large parking lot has both upper and lower levels - swing through the upper level and you will see the entry to clubhouse on your left, a set of large wooden double-entry doors.. Once inside the main door, turn and keep to the left. You’ll wind past the restrooms until you see the bar. Turn hard left as you get to the bar and the Card Room is down a very short entry ahead.

Hope to see you there, it really is a nice venue.
