  • ​​​Lunch will be from approximately 12-1:15. Since there aren't many local close dining options, I'd recommend packing a lunch. Or if you'd like to eat at Meredith's dinning hall, you may do so for $8/person. This may be included with your registration fee. Please indicate how many people will be eating.
