  1. Hi Julie and other WOW organizers,
    Thanks for all your work on WOW!
    I’m looking for a potential ride-sharer, leaving Minneapolis or St. Paul between 4-7 PM Friday evening. (I’d be coming from my work, Hwys 280 and 94. Is there a list of people signed up for Friday dorm lodging?

  2. Hi Julie Kosbab and Julie VanMersbergen:

    Thanks for getting back to me regarding my inquiry about driving to WOW this weekend. I still have room for one more WOW rider to join us on the ride to the north shore, and UW Superior.
