    Please remove my name from the list. I just found out that I have to attend something else that evening at my school.
    For those of you that get selected to go, have a great time. I am sure it will be a fabulous evening!

    Since finding out that travel expenses includes hotel, I have decided that this trip is out of my budget at the time. Please remove my name ever so gently. I’m really bummed!
