SECTION 2: SIDELINES MEETING WRITE-UP

I attended a Friday afternoon Sidelines meeting on March 16, 2018. While I was there, I talked to Andrew Wigdor about an idea I had for an article. He said that the meeting I attended had fewer people than usual; I counted about 12.

Announcements were made at the beginning of the meeting, chief among which was that Sidelines needed to find more editors, as most of the current editors were about to graduate. After the announcements, the attendees broke up into smaller groups to divide up stories for the week by subject. I had been in communication with Andrew via email about a story I wanted to write, so I spoke to him some more about that (see below). I was told that there was nothing I could be doing at the meeting, so after listening to the Lifestyles group float story ideas for a while (including stories about a new art exhibit at Todd Hall and the upcoming Irish Festival), I left and wrote this blog post.
