Lastly, today’s current temperature is over 100 degrees. The forecast for next week is low 100’s. Please make sure to drink plenty of water and wear sunscreen while you are here. Water bottles will be provide at registration or in your on-campus room. If you are feeling ill while out in the sun, please let one of the host committee know immediately. Heat Exhaustion and Sunstroke are real concerns once the temperatures in Las Vegas rise above 100 degrees, and in an arid climate it is very easy to become dehydrated even if you are indoors all day.

Safe Travels,
