Only one more week ’till Michcomp! Here are a few housekeeping items before the big day:

  • Be on the look out for set-up/clean-up info for Fri/Sat night! Half the team will be assigned for Fri setup, and the other half Sat for breakdown.
  • “March for Life” will also be occurring from 11am-2pm at Pioneer with us. We’ll be sending out a map showing which side of the school to enter from!
  • We’ll be having a Michcomp afterparty on Saturday night — more details to follow

In other related news, we hit our fundraising goal for Michcomp! On behalf of the team, thank you so much to all of the friends and family of the team who donated! The show of support is really incredible, and will be put to great use to run our competition this weekend.

Lastly, save the date for Dance Mix, March 30th! You can find the Facebook event here. Tickets are $10, and usually sell out pretty quickly! We will try and get seats together as a team, so look for more info on that coming soon.
