Details for the trip to the Farmington Tournament
We will leave Los Alamos Friday morning, Feb. 12, from the Duane Smith parking lot at 7:00 a.m. We will pick up in White Rock at the Rock gas station (the parking lot behind it) around 7:15. Then we will travel to Pojoaque to the Kicks 66 gas station to pick up students who live outside LA and WR. I expect we'll be there around 7:35. After we pick up those students, we will travel to Farmington.
Saturday, breakfast is provided by the hotel. We will pack up and check out before we board the bus. We will travel again to the high school for our second and last day of competition. At the end of the day, we will eat at Zeb's in Farmington before boarding the bus and heading home. We will stop at the Kicks 66 to drop off, at the WR Rock gas station to drop off, and then at Duane Smith in LA to drop off.
State Tournament--we need chaperones
Judges Needed--Very Urgent!!!
We will gladly pay $25 a day to anyone who wants to commit to a full day of judging. We love to help starving college students!
