Today we attended SDLAC Workshop number 1. It was great to meet the other teams for the first time and have the opportunity to discuss different aspects of the competition. We were taken to the site of the Solar Villa where interviews with both local and national press were conducted. Later that evening we attended a Cocktail mixer at the Spiwak hotel, where teams could mingle and present their excitement videos to fellow decathletes. It’s been an exciting day and the competition is beginning to feel more like a reality.
