Meet new ODs and reconnect with your classmates from Washington and Oregon. Friday's Exhibit Hall and Social is a Carnival (no rides and no clowns, however). Each vendor booth will feature a different carnival game. Try your luck at the games, check out the wares (watch out for snake oil!) and collect game tickets. The more game tickets you enter to OOPA/OPW, the more chances you have to win the big prizes! Heavy appetizers and drinks will be served. Everyone is a winner!
