Hi, Doug.

I signed up for a few of the slots and will try to fill in a couple more based on need. Quick question, for tutorial host do you hang around beyond the 20-before/20-after to help with non-TA duties for the duration? 

Also, anyone know of any off-list room shares available for the evening of the 13th? I was hoping for something closer to the venue for that evening. I am covered on the 12th and 14th - 18th.

Instead please stop by the Green Room, preferably in the morning between 7:00am and 9:00am. The Green Room is located in the 212 meeting room on the second floor above registration.
