But still on is Friday night's trip to the Caps game! The Washington Capitals will face the New Jersey Devils at the MCI Center. Tickets are $10 and anyone going will also be responsible for metro fares. If you are interested in going to the game, let Adam know at alasky@umd.edu.

Hope everyone who went on the New York trip had a great time this weekend! Congratulations to Meghan for setting a new land-speed record: New York to College Park: 3 hours. If anyone who took pictures wants to share them with the rest of the group, let me know and we can link to them.

Don't forget there is a society meeting Wednesday night!
