Election night



This is a picture of the Round Table pizza back room that I reserved for a little Election Return get-together during Election Night.  I had expected 30 people to show.

By night's end, around 200 students had come to witness a very historical event.  At 7 p.m., that room was so packed with people that students were outside looking through the window at the television coverage of the event.  It was pretty darn cool.  Notice my projector in the lower right hand corner of the picture.  I had the electoral map on the wall, allowing students to watch the change of the colors as the states fell into place.  The crowded started to fade with McCain's concession speech and only about 20 people were left to view Obama's victory statement.  The cool thing was that students were enthused before and talking about it after.  Always good to see the kids involved.
