Michigan Crew Day '08

Like I said before, the Breast Cancer 3-Day starts on Thursday for crew members. Advance teams and coaches arrive between 10:00 and 10:30, captains arrive at 11:30 and the rest of the crew arrives no later than 1:00. This is followed by trainings, such as how to put up those fun, pink western shelters and how to use the comm equipment, and meetings with the various staff people that your crew will deal with on event. Being on the sweep crew, my team also started decorating their vans, a few of which can be seen below.

There were 7 vans all together. I'll try to get photos of the rest up soon.

All in all crew day was a good time. It's a good way to ease into the event, since you get to go home when it's done! You get to meet anyone on your team that you haven't met yet and you get to meet the staff, who are always awesome.

After crew day, get some sleep. Day one begins at 4:30am...
