Hey Charger fans. It’s a noon Eastern kickoff today from Phillippi, West Virginia and Alderson Broaddus.
I will be watching the replay on the GMAC app as I am in Napa. Yeah, that Napa. No wine tours for me though, I am spending my Saturday out here presenting at a big California educational technology conference. Great work if you can get it.
Thanks for the great job Brad Monastiere does at Hillsdale as here are the links for following the action.
