Of particular note:
1.) Though the last conference ran Friday through Sunday, this conference runs from SATURDAY to MONDAY to take advantage of the Monday, January 17 Martin Luther King, Jr. Day holiday.
2.) Parents please discuss with delegates/delegate please remember: also politely and quickly follow the instructions given to you by ANY advisor, not just your own delegation advisors, unless doing so will place you in immediate, physical harm. If you feel an instruction was wrongly given or that you were being blamed for something not your doing, follow the instruction and then discuss the matter with your delegation advisors when possible. Do not argue with any advisor giving you instructions. That is an inappropriate response. It is usually ineffective as well.
3.) As mentioned in previous emails, we have charter buses for this conference for the first time in the history of our program at the Sacramento YMCA. Please appreciate this and maintain your usual level of courteous behavior and be very nice to the bus drivers. This bus things is kind of a big deal.
4.) Bring clothing appropriate for the weather which will likely be very cold and potentially also rainy. A parka or ski jacket wouldn't be out of place at night. You'll need more than your sweatshirt.
5.) As ever, nothing that plugs in. You know the rules on that.
We're looking forward to a wonderful Bob II and then it's on to Sacramento which, trust us, will be just about the best thing ever. Seriously, it's that good.
