I forgot to mention that one of GSAC's perks is the free breakfast provided to all teams attending! Pizza may also be available on site during lunch, in addition to the many dining opportunities within easy walking or driving distance of Maggie Walker Governor's School.

We'll definitely be selling pizza and drinks on site so that teams don't have to leave for lunch unless they want to.
