The dinner and meeting will be at Ruth and Glen Archer's deck (weather cooperating -- not looking good, otherwise inside their house) overlooking the lift bridge/canal. Head up Quincy Hill north on US41 from Hancock and take the first right after the overlook turn onto Kowsit Lats Road (if you get to the blinker/Quincy Mine you've gone too far). You'll be headed downhill and curving to the right. Take the next right onto No. 7 Flats Road and continue downhill to the last house (big white house, #49351) at the end of the road.
