HEAD COACHES: Good luck in your games today. If you or your team plan to go early or stay late at a game site, please notify Kevin, our bus dispatcher, or your site staff person so we can organize busses accordingly. Also, please have your team clean up and vacate the bench immediately after the game for the next game. Finally, the busses need to stay on schedule so please keep your post-game meetings to a minimum.
VIDEO VIEWING ROOM is available for watching your game tapes or for team meetings. Sign up at the tourney lobby booth. Balboa is in the back ballroom area to the right of the main ballroom.
CURFEW: Just a reminder that there is an “in your room and quiet” curfew of 11:30pm each night.

The trolley leaves every 15 minutes for all the malls, Old Town, Horton Plaza, great restaurants, Costco, the grocery store, MORE! The WESTBOUND trolley departs at :13, :28, :43, and :58 (until 9:00pm) from the Rio Vista stop just in back of the hotel. After 9:00pm the trolley departs 3 times/hour.

ROOM KEY WON’T WORK?? Don’t put your cell phone next to your room key . . . it de-magnetizes the key so that it won’t work to unlock your door!
KARAOKE: Congrats to those of you who sang at Karaoke last night! We doubt if American Idol will come looking for many of you, but here’s a shout out to everyone who got up and sang!
KUDOS FROM THE MARRIOTT SECURITY STAFF . . . they said you had a great night the first night. Keep up the good work. The Marriott is serious about YOUR SAFETY: please remember if you are caught throwing things off the balcony, doing graffiti, drugs, alcohol or marijuana, YOU WILL BE EVICTED and the police will be contacted. So have fun responsibly, keep making great choices, and keep everyone happy!
