Each waymark will be evaluated on its own merits. We will endeavor to be reasonable and flexible while maintaining the quality standards for the category.

Odd looking building located on the main thoroughfare in town and right down the street from a huge war memorial. The post offers hall rental and has a neat little anti tank gun display out front and to the right.
