Re: 2017 September OT Meeting/Research

Hi Peggy, thank you for the quick reply. I think I must have missed some pieces of info, because I couldn't figure out the group info. From what I could gather, it seems like group 1 and 3 are arriving Sunday, yet group 1 is going home Wednesday and group 3 is going home on Saturday. Not sure why gr...
