There is a link to an xls. spread sheet at http://nso.wisc.edu/vip_info.php with event supervisor info on it. FYI for Fossils B people - the event supervisor listed is different this year, so hopefully the test won't be a rehash of the same old M/C test that was used the last 2 years...

That's no typo (, that's a space station). Who doesn't love snakes? Yum. I mean... SNAKES! Why did it have to be snakes? :D

EDIT: I'm a geek...
I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE...

On a separate note, this may be just me being unable to find information, but does anyone know if the dorms have bedsheets/pillows? I'm bringing a sleeping bag regardless, but this would be nice to know.

Haha, that's good.

They should have bedspreads/pillows; if I'm not mistaken, they should not expect you to bring bedspreads if you're only staying there two or three nights.

EDIT: Who here is going to the dance? We just received confirmation that we're going. Anyone else?

so if the same person writes the test for an event, then the degree of difficulty of the test should be the same as the year before right?

also, do you guys know if the dorms have wifi?

Based on my experience last year, both. But I don't trust public wifi.

Nats website wrote:Dorms include breakfast and wi-fi.
EDIT: Mind you, that's not an exact quote (they took it down from the nats site) - I just remember looking it up at one point to determine where we would be staying. I remember that everywhere we considered - including the dorms - had wifi.
