Chapter Elections Workshop - Saturday, March 14, 2015

I hear a lot of bullshit about what MORE is or isn't. This is the real  scut work of organizing. This doesn't mean that people we work with don't join Unity - it happened 3 years ago with some people we worked with. Unity has a lot more to put on the table than MORE does -- but MORE is there to help.

Unfortunately, I have to attend a big weekend robotics tournament at the Javits Center -- and if you aren't going to the MORE event come on down Saturday, especially from around 11AM on to see the events. I'll be in the pit area of the FIRST LEGO League. Last year I ran into Mulgrew in the larger high school pit area - and we talked carpentry. Really, if I had to do it over again, I would be Mulgrew - pre-teaching.
