"At 12:45 on Friday afternoon I arrived to the PMO Lounge at Elliott Hall bags in hand, ready and excited to begin my first fall break tour with the PVGC. We soon had to start moving properties out to the busses. It's always a hustle to get the properties upstairs, but every time we move them it gets a bit easier. Once we loaded up I got onto Bus 1. I usually sit on bus 2 but today we reviewed the video of our 'First Nighter' performance in order to critique ourselves. For this review I sat with my mentor within the group, Matthew Lancaster. Bill told us to find two things to improve ourselves on and work on that this weekend. After a few hours of travel we arrived at the Union League Club of Chicago. Moving in properties into the club was an interesting experience as we had to move properties though a bustling kitchen. After setup we ate a pizza dinner and prepared for the show. The show was excellent! After the show we quickly tore down the properties and headed to the hotel. I went to the pool and swam with some of the other Glee Clubbers. We had a full weekend ahead of us, so we headed to bed soon after!
