  1. Hi there, my board meeting mini review is the next one up, and I know it says it is due November 8th because we don’t have a tutorial next week, but I was wondering if I have to hand it into you this tuesday anyways?
    Let me know thanks!

  2. Hi Maddy,
    I assume you mean Nov 6th…
    Your mini-review is due the day of your board meeting (Tuesday Nov 6th), and the short news report 1 week later.

    People who did their mini-review this week on great tits have to hand in their short news reports next week, even though there is no tutorial.

  3. Oh yea haha nov 6! Okay that makes sense thank you!
