Raleigh Charter can bring at least 2. We could bring four. We could then say we beat Dorman at something. :)

I'm sure this is posted somewhere, but I am not finding it:

I need the address to which the check is to be sent for Registration.

Construction at GMU update

Post by First Chairman » Thu May 15, 2008 12:03 am

Just letting you all know there is construction around the main "Patriot Circle" region of campus. Construction begins next week here, and it may affect how people get to campus. So to let you know:

Starting Monday, May 19, there will be significant changes to traffic patterns on Patriot Circle for the construction of a roundabout at the intersection of Mason Pond Drive and Patriot Circle across from the PE Building. The project includes three phases:

Phase 1 – May 19 to Aug. 1
The portion of Patriot Circle between Mason Pond Drive (across from the PE Building) and Parking Lot J will be closed. All traffic will be diverted onto Mason Pond Drive, which will be converted to accommodate two-way traffic. From May 19-21 while Mason Pond Dr. is being re-marked for two-way traffic, there will only be one lane of traffic with flagmen at times. The conversion should be complete to allow normal two-way traffic starting May 22. Parking along both sides of Mason Pond Drive will be removed for the duration of the construction project.

[This is the western stretch of Patriot Circle, affecting access to Lot J, which is one of the lots I preferred people park buses. You may wind up having to park in Lot K (near Patriot Center). Access to the north lots near the bus stops is curtailed with this construction.]

Sorry about the inconvenience.

We can bring one set of buzzers. We need an invoice for our two teams. I also need the 2007 NSC questions. Thanks.

Okay... reminding myself to send to the invoice later tonight. If any of the PACE folks (Tricia? Fred? Matt?) could send Dr. B a set of 2007 questions, that would be great.

I have always wondered how a school could have an academic quiz team and NOT have a set of buzzers.

I have checked with my coach, James Monroe will definitely be bringing buzzers to PACE, unless there is no longer a need for them.

Even though I think we are now beyond the necessary number, I always encourage teams to bring 1 if they can. Besides, it's a discount to bring your system.
