1.  Tic Toc TemPEEEE – 3/31
2 weeks to bring your A-GAME: 
·         Carpooling: If you haven’t cleared up your transportation, now’s the time!  Email captains if you need carpooling buddies.
·         Lodging:   Email captains if you need bunk mates.
·         No Flake Date has passed: Make sure you pay your Tempe fees!!!

Note: If you have already setup transportation and lodging and have space in your car and/or room, email the captains so we place our orphans!

·         SO, if you already have your flight, update the Evite with flight info to secure your spot, NOW!

4.  PRACTICE ATTENDANCE
·         Attendance Poll:  Accuracy here is VERY important as we ask for boats on a weekly basis based on the poll numbers. WE have been way off in both directions the last FEW weeks!
·         Attendance Sheet:  It is YOUR responsibility to sign up on the attendance sheet.  Since the attendance sheet is used for land drill attendance as well, if you skip the attendance sheet, you may miss being counted for land drills as well!!!

5.  BEACH CLEANUP UNO – Give back to the community! March 24
·         Most successful community outreach we can do!!!
·         Just 30 to 45 min of time
·         Good for us, the greater DB community and public relations
