For the third straight year, BHS MCongress showed its class and dominance at Princeton MC, bringing home a dozen awards, and just missing many more. So many outstanding, engaging performances by so many of our delegates impressed so many Princeton chairs and executive board members. Founding Father Petela was overjoyed by the effort, enthusiasm and high level of debate his bhsmc delegates demonstrated over the weekend, not to mention the outstanding, mature and fun-loving leadership by the 24 seniors to the 21 juniors and 5 sophs. In sum for now (more to come later when i recover from five, twenty hour dayzes in a row!), it was an incredible weekend of great weather (even if a little chilly), dinners, bonding, making new friends, amazing and witty guest speakers--Judge Boasberg and Attorney General Gansler, Terry McAuliffe, Patriotic Tours--Arlington, Jefferson, the almost Awakening, Air & Space, Holocaust, Georgetown, and the stressful but memorable midnight tour to Lincoln and WW2!... I hope to have a "few" fotos uploaded this weekend, we'll see...
