2015-2016 Preseason meeting #10

We went over the usual topics in our second to the last all hands meeting of the preseason on December 8th.  There are many important dates coming up.  We have two mandatory meetings–on December 13th at 12:00-4:30 is the SHARP FRC Community Day event at Sarah Heinz House, and on December 18th at 5-8:30 is the EOPP Extra Build Day.  For the EOPP day, you must have your WWTG release forms in which can be found as an attachment with the weekly update email.  For the mandatory meetings, you MUST RVSP yes or no–it is preferred you come, but understood if you cannot due to prior commitments.  If you have not yet done so, all girls must do the following:

1) Register for FIRST (link is also in the weekly emails),

2) Apply for the PA Child Abuse Clearance forms (mandatory for ages 14+; next special session is December 16th (sign up here), and finally,
3) You must email a clear headshot of yourself to IDPlus@andrew.cmu.edu <mailto:IDPlus@andrew.cmu.edu> ASAP in order to receive your CMU ID card.
