Attention Student Organizations

I know its early, but I've already received requests for fall reservations from many different student organizations and I need one piece of paper to make those reservations come true! You know, its not a fairy godmother or anything like that, its so much simpler then that.

What I need is a vehicle authorization form from Student Programs. Student Programs handles the paperwork since they are in-charge of all the stu orgs for the campus. They know all and when I receive that form from them, it is letting the Fleet Office know that your stu org is meeting their standards. That means all financial responsibilities are taken care of along with following the rules and regulations of stu orgs.

So, contact Student Programs to find out when you will be allowed to fill out the form. Usually at the beginning of the year they have a massive meeting with everyone representing their orgs and then the paperwork starts to flow to the Fleet Office. Then we can work on your reservations!

Take me out to the ball game......

The Fleet Office hosted an employee bus trip to see the Red Sox play the Baltimore Oriels on Friday 7/11/2008. The night was a perfect summer evening for a baseball game. The weather was warm with a nice summer breeze flowing through the stadium.

The game was good, even though nothing too exciting happened. There was an almost home run where the ball bounced off the wall back into fair play and a couple of double plays. The Red Sox did end up losing 3-7, but it was nice to be out with my fellow employees for a night of baseball.

Even Summer Conferences Use Us!

Can you believe it? The summer conference season is in full swing around here. We have many different camps and conference here with us this summer that range from sport clinics to research for adults. Its amazing the groups of people we have around here (along with the normal brilliant employees and students we typically have).

But with all this hard work these conferences do to achieve their goals, they still need down time too. So, the summer groups still use the fleet programs from the sedans all the way up to the buses for field trips all over New England.

Here are some of the locations we have brought our talented visitors to: the Morse Hill Ropes Course, the New England Air Museum, Nomad's Indoor Adventure, day trips to Boston, DAR Beach and the mall. These are just a few locations where we take them for some much needed down time.

So, we are not just an academic department, we are here year round to assist in your field trip needs!

When you think you are above the law!

An off-duty police officer, familiar with radar guns,
drove through a school zone within the legal speed limit
when the flash of a camera went off, taking a picture of
his license plate.

The officer, thinking the radar was in error, drove by again;
even more slowly. Another flash. He did it again for a third
time, at an even slower speed. Same result.

"This guy must have screwed up the settings," the off-duty
officer thought.

A few weeks later, when he received the violations in the mail,
he discovered three traffic tickets:

Each for not wearing a seat belt!
