There will be a module work session in the Student Alumni Union's ALUMNI Room on THURSDAY March 15.
It will go from 1PM to 10PM. I really could use everyone's help here... We have lots to do, ranging from paint (we will try to do htis downstairs beforehand), to wiring, to possibly more tracklaying. As far as I know, the legs are being cut today by superdave and Luther.
