Regular Registration rates ended July 7th, but there is still time to get a late registration in!  The room block at the Candlewood Suites closed on 7/8/19, but hotel rooms are still available in the local area.  Contact Lisa Cunard at  lacunard@mtu.edu if you need help finding a place!   

We have now reached capacity on the field trip for Friday, but will maintain a waiting list for those who may still be interested.

We have turned in our list for the golf outing, and have disabled the golf sign-up.  If you are still interested in playing contact David Nelson at dannelso@mtu.edu ... if a current participant drops out we may have a space available.
