Approximately 70 students, coaches, and chaperones who came to town last Thursday for the 7th Annual Cooper Invitational are getting a bit more Memphis than they had bargained for. With Hurricane Sandy on its way, their return flights yesterday were canceled and it doesn't look like they'll be returning to the airport until Wednesday at the earliest.
The four teams, from Frisch, SAR, North Shore, and Rambam, came to school this morning for davening, breakfast, and a shiur and they'll be here for lunch as well. After lunch they're either heading for some Memphis siteseeing or to the laudromat to get some clean clothes for their extended stay. Tomorrow we'll do the same thing again and then, hopefully for their sake, they'll be on their way back home.
