CALL TIME 6:30am @ EHS
Maybe in the gym parking lot near the tennis courts, just because that's where all of the cool kids hang.

CALL TIME IS NOW THURSDAY 6:00pm @ Cafe Salatto

Thursday isn't really an important day for the convention, so we'll be putting on our rebel suits as we ditch those foreign newspaper nerds. At Cafe Salatto, we'll be discussing our plans for the convention. Sorry for the short notice.

Write-Offs D: !
