The Big Event is almost here! This Saturday, April 7th, team captains should show up by 9:00 AM on the drillfield, and all volunteers should arrive to the drillfield by 9:30 AM.
It is very imperative that your entire team shows up to the drillfield as over 1,200 residents are relying on Hokies to live out Ut Prosim. Each volunteer and team has already been matched to jobs and no-show teams reflect very poorly on Virginia Tech and The Big Event.
Preparing for The Big Event
– Some projects will be outside, so please dress appropriately.
– Bring water
– Coordinate where your group will meet the morning of (be as specific as possible!)
Check-In On Saturday
– Check-in is at 9am sharp at the large tent near the War Memorial Gym
– Check-in tent is divided by the first letter of your team name
There will also be sponsors booths and free stuff on drillfield, as well as some exciting guest speakers and performances. We look forward to seeing you Saturday!
