Pitt's International Week, Sept. 18-24, 2004

Requested to lead badminton activities on Sept. 20 from noon to 2 pm for International Week were nixed today. Permission wasn't secured as there is some eight week lead time to get a "permit" to use the lawn at Pitt's Cathedral or Student Union. My, they are worried about protests. Plus, a 'student group' was also needed as a co-sponsor. Pitt web site with more insights on International Week.

They're hosting a Soccer Tournament too, on the Cathedral lawn. Nice use of space.

Pitt's glossy magazine is expected to do a story on our trip to China. We're providing some photos and Catherine gave an interview.

Perhaps we'll get to do it next year, as the coordinator of the event was very excited. But, red tape prevails.
