1.   Salem hospitality: inviting, warm, and southern

2.   The Salem Civic Center: a classic arena, great staff, acres of parking, and fresh popcorn

3.   65 and Sunny

4.   A spacious, hospitality suite at the Roanoke Airport Hampton for $103.50 per night

5.   Brazilian Shrimp, Scallops, and Clams at Montaro’s

6.   Visiting Fans – Hope had the most;  Amherst, fun and flamboyant; Ursinius, gracious in defeat; and       Washington U. had, by far, both the rowdiest and creative student section. The atmosphere was loud and electric
