The full schedule will be published sometimes tomorrow on Exposure Event App. With all of the changes and special requests, we just could not get it all in tonight.  Although many of you had scheduling requests, we may not be able to honor all of them!!! Once the schedule is published, We WILL NOT be making “convenience” type changes. It’s simply too difficult and disruptive to other teams to make those types of schedule changes!
