"Chalk Talk" Event

Submitted by GoBlueMAGNUS on May 26th, 2011 at 11:44 AM
I just got this email from the athletic department:
"Chalk Talk Event"
"Please join our head coaches and athletic director for a preview of the upcoming season
John Beilein-Men's Basketball
Brady Hoke-Football
Dave Brandon-Athletic Director

Alro Steel Conference Center
Monday June 6th
2500 Enterprise. Jackson, MI 49203
9:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.
There is no charge for this event and a continental breakfast will be served

Please RSVP to Katie Reeves by June 1st. Seating is limited."

Seems like an interesting event. I don't remember them having one last year. UPDATE: I received another email: "We have filled our available slots for the Chalk Talk event. You will receive a separate confirmation if you received one of the reserved slots. Reservations are now closed." That was fast.

That seems like an odd location. Are they trying to draw the GR and Chicago people without getting too far from Metro Detroit? It's a smooth and easy 30+ drive from Ann Arbor, especially at that time of day.

I didn't mean to disparage the residents of Jackson, who I've found to be largely great people. It's just that Jackson seems to have suffered from some of the same problems other mid-lower Michigan cities have. Some of the industry went away, and nothing stepped in to replace it. Also, there seems to be a very high concetration of Asian massage parlors there.

I think this was geared towards a specific group of people (big time $$$$) because I tried to RSVP for myself right after I got the email and they said it was already full.
