Swap Meet!

One of my favorite parts of Nationals last year was swap meet, because it was fun to meet so many people from different states. I'm proposing we all wear nametags with our scioly username, so we can all identify each other and get a chance to talk. Is anyone else up for this? Another idea would be writing it on the card with your name in the pouch if UCF does that, since I've only been to the Wright State tournament and I don't know what is normally given out.

What pouch and card are you talking about? I've never been, but I'll know on Saturday. We have a pretty good chance of making it.

You guys should think about getting Scioly T-Shirts, the goal was to get them out to those who order them in time for nationals.

The past two Nats. there have been lanyards with holders for a name tag/school name. Pretty good idea, actually.

Aren't the team shirts protocol for everything Nationals? (except the awards ceremony).

Nope, they're not required at any time really, but most teams wear their shirts at competition on Saturday.

How about we designate a place at the swap meet to meet? I think that's been done before (though I haven't been to a scioly.org meetup yet)

I probably won't be at the swap meet, but perhaps sometime during the lunch hour, we could meet up at some predetermined place (of course wearing our new scioly.org shirts- you all did order them didn't you? ;) )

Not sure what we're doing yet for lunch on Friday but yeah that might work!

I'll try not to scare you again...

But if you see me, come say hi! I promise I'm friendly.

There's no built-in lunch hour for UCF like there was at WSU :( I'll probably have to see you all at the awards ceremony since I won't have time for lunch anyway

That'd be great :D Especially since we're probably going to hop on the bus and head back shortly after awards are over :(
