darn, most likely can't go. going to worlds...but i might be able to convince my parents to take me on a college tour that weekend at MU :)

If you'd like me to show you around campus sometime before or after the competition, let me know. Unlike the official tours, I'll be totally honest with you about the school!

this is really close to me! my dad doesn't have a passport though... that could be a problem.

Heh... so this is gonna sound really farfetched and janky, but I do know of 3 bus services you could piece-meal to get from Windsor to the venue in Ann Arbor.

1. There's a bus that runs from a Holiday Inn in Windsor to the Detroit airport - https://reservation.robertq.com/airbus/
2. We have an airbus system in Ann Arbor that transports you to and from the airport, I've used this several times - http://www.myairride.com/AirRide/Schedule
3. The local bus route 1 starts at the dropoff location for the airbus, and the end of the line is the venue for the competition -http://theride.org/rideguide/1out.pdf

I doubt that this would be worth it, but when I realized your situation/location and thought of all of these bus services I knew, I found it funny that there was actually a way to do this. At the very least, I figured it would be worth sharing.

that's actually more doable for me than you might think. it would require a lot of planing and discussion with my parents, but it can be done. im going to need to know what time this comp starts at though.

definitely going, just need to figure out how to get there and whether or not I can actually do clock and/or FMC without epic failing.

Is it possible to have more rounds of OH if there's extra time?
And if you need help, I can show up earlier to help.

If you decide to do that, could I join? (even though I'm planning on doing an official college tour before the comp)
I still get lost around campus but I know north campus and the pharmacy school part of central campus pretty well.

Yeah - if we get ahead I imagine we'd just add more rounds of whatever popular demand tells me to add. And I can definitely do a tour for whoever wants one!
