It is worth noting that the Clark Kerr campus is a separate location
about a half of a mile from the main campus.  Most people at Berkeley
never have anything to do with Clark Kerr facility and hence don't
really know what is there.

Because it is a bit of a walk between the two, it would probably be
best to have events primarily at either Clark Kerr or at the main
campus.  But doing a lot at both sites would be very awkward.
