    the 150th anniversary of the Battle of New Market will be tomorrow & I'm sure that this is gonna be a bigger than normal parade. If you are interested they are streaming the parade at the link below- it is a good chance to get a view of a VMI parade for those who are: considering attending; are already accepted; alumni who haven't been back in a while; or just curious. For the First Class- Graduation Parade today, New Market tomorrow and it's all just a memory after the next day!!! (then the Alumni Association starts hitting you up for the next 50 years or so !)

    Parade may be cancelled due to weather

    From their website. :frown:

    Early Parking Warning - 95% chance that outdoor New Market parade will be cancelled due to weather. VMI will make a final decision on the parade early morning. Parking will be severely limited, with no Parade Ground parking. Satellite parking at the Lowe’s on Route 11 north of Lexington. Shuttles will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

    If it makes you feel any better, I had to block my alma mater's phone number too. One time I answered the call, and told them to send me an email instead, and the student-worker told me they do all their business by phone call. Sorry. I won't be giving you my details over the phone. Get a new business model.

    Oh -- also, I was in New Market last week. Cool to see the preparations being made and to imagine being there for the reenactments. Assuming it didn't get cancelled, I mean.
