Princeton & Yale MCs Success Again, Harvard & Penn Delegate Deciding Time
Hello again most worthy BHSMCers. Just a quick update on MCongress…
Congrats & Applause to all our BHS MC Students at the Princeton & Yale MCs the past weekends. Over 30 attended PMC & 130 YMC (record#!) and 13 awards won, more details soon to come on website. Photos are all up, click link, for both conferences, approx 7,000 -- I know, it’s a lot, some say excessive, I’ve got finger-itis from snapping so many photos, and I also lost my voice last weekend at Yale, slowly but surely getting back
Harvard & Penn MCongress now needs bhsmc delegates. I’ve already sent deposits, and final payments and hotel expenses are due very soon! If you are interested in going to either, a deposit of at least $100 is needed by next Friday 16th. I will not deposit money till final decision is made, which should be by Tue Dec 20. If you could deposit more than $100, any amount up to $600, that would be greatly appreciated. If money is tight now for $100 deposit, please send me email and we will work something out. Scholarship money is available
Harvard (Feb 22W--26Su, right after winter break weekend, $600) is open to all MCers, preference will be by class & officer-ship, soon to be updated. We will be taking about 40 students.
Penn (March 28W--April 1Su, $600) is usually for Juniors, w/ some sophs. About 35 taking.
Last call also for MC Attire, will be placing order this coming Monday 12th in hopes of getting by Fri 23rd, so please get order to me if want by Christmas.
Columbia & Princeton Moot dates still waiting to be determined. Columbia, one day event, Saturday in late March or early April, frosh & soph mostly -- PMoot usually in April, Th--Sat, invite only by me, usually take about 20 kids, teams of 2, plan on taking a few from all grades.
Don’t forget our only fundraiser The Concert #15 on January 21st with the Yale Whiffenpoofs and our BHS Music Makers (we just had a great bonding dinner/time at Mory’s last Monday, see photos on website), more info coming about concert soon.
You're all welcome for 2 great MC weekends, enjoy the photos & memories...

Yale Model Congress Weekend Upon Us -- FG&GF Time
Attention All Yale MCers --
Hope you are all getting psyched and pumped, focused and game faced to attack Yale this weekend. We leave BHS 4:30 Thursday, front lobby dressed to impress in WBA - Western Biz Attire - we have to continue our best dressed and best looking delegation reputation, don't disappoint!:) I will be even more impressed to get emails of your opening speeches and fact sheets/outlines, these will make a difference not only at conference, but also for upcoming officer-ship noted below.
About 40 of you still have NOT handed in your blue permission packet, if i don't get by Per1 Thursday morn, very good chance you will not go -- if you are not responsible enough to get it to me by then, not sure i want to trust you in NHaven at Yale MC, so FOCUS & GET TO ME within 32 hours, or no go!:(
Thanks and applause to the MC Prezs, vp/gov for the great job they did this fall preparing their fellow MCers for the Princeton and upcoming Yale MC. Tonight was the final 15th meeting of 2011, and it was another full house with almost 100 bhsmc-ers attending, getting through about 4 bills in each of the 3 rooms. Photos from tonite and from all the fall prep sessions are now uploaded on our MC website, check out and get a few LOLs :)
After Yale MC, there will be a revised officer list, with a few new additions to officers and promotions and possible demotions. Also, there may be a first frosh officer list. So YMCers keep this in mind over the weekend - be on your best behavior and performance.
Also after YMC, i need to choose before Christmas who will be going to Harvard and Penn, more on that next week.
Till Thursday, you know this week's time & motto "FG&GF" :) Petela

Important MC News For This Week Nov 14 From Founding Father Petela :)
Princeton MCers +
Don't forget to bring in your orange permission packet SIGNED where needed, and any out$tanding money. Parents can keep last 2 pages of packet, itinerary etc.
Also, you ALL need to bring 25 copies of your bill just in case, if you forget and they don't have in book, you'll have to find somewhere to make copies and that will be inconvenient and expensive.
Finally, don't forget to stop by Tues. to pick up Final Reminder Handout on my front desk. One of them is you are not excused Per7 Wed. We are leaving after the half day, on the road by 12:20ish, bus should be here at 11:30 to load if you have period 8 off.
