    CVW - April 2011

    Hell-o Night

    Well, to begin with, it would be nice if someone spelled HELLO correctly. Hell - O would imply that the night would somehow resemble being in Hell. How could that be? Why would things suddenly become "hellish" after such a relaxing 7 week vacation at Resort Annapolis? My guess is that the...

    Be sure your signed up for I-DAY PICNIC!

    Be sure your signed up for I-DAY PICNIC!

    So, is it safe to say that you can still participate in all other aspects of the picnic without registering and paying for the food? Since my son has to be in for 9AM, I figure we will drop him off, leave, go back to the hotel /eat lunch near the mall, and come back to the yard a bit after...

    Permit to Report!!

    My son's PTR came today. It looks like an enourmous amout of stuff to fill out. Considering he has 6 AP exams to prepare for, I think he will be getting use to doing more with less free time and sleep well before 7/1. I don't think this is a good time to play the "let him do it himself and...
