I know everybody is excited about getting out under the stars, but the 2014 Spring Scimmage is only four days long, not three years. :D

Yes Merrill, the 2014 Spring Scrimmage is a long one. By the end of it you will be able to field strip and rebuild every mount on the field at night without a red flashlight. Every so often we will have a large party there called the Deep South Regional StarGaze where a bunch of other people will join you.

Your calculated cost for the 2014 Spring Scrimmage will be:

$37.00 x 1100 days for lodging --------------------$40700.00

$29.00 x 1100 days for meals ---------------------$31900.00

$25.00 x 3 (registration for 3 DSRSG's--------------$ 75.00

$1500 x3 (3 years of gov't mandated insurance)----$ 4500.00

Total---------------------------------------------$ 77175.00

While the $77175.00 might sound a bit daunting, think of all the money you will save by not being at home. If you are single you can just sell the house or rent it to someone else. You will not have to drive anywhere so you will save on gas and you can possibly cancel your car insurance. I don't think the insurance company will mind if you just use your car as a storage locker. If you are worried about a termination at work I can just write a note to make it look like a ransom demand from terrorists, so your company will be sympathetic and will mail your check to that bank account in Switzerland. You will probably come out ahead, but you will have to factor in the cost of any UPS or FedEX deliverables including sunscreen, bug spray and any astronomy goodies that you decide you just have to have!

Buck up, we can work it out!
