Friday, March 14th, 2008
Today we started our script for our infomercial and fixed our logo so that the headline is under the logo which Meghan and Rojin are doing at least I think Meghan is. Rojin is also posting some stuff on other agencies discussion boards which me and Meghan already did. We are still struggling to stay on complete track well at least 2/4 of us are. That basically sums up what we did today. We also resived some air miles. And we want to work on our script more in and after March break. By: Gavin

Thursday, March 13th, 2008
Today during block 4 for the first 10 minutes our agency, and the other agencies were competing to get bonus air miles by editing the bonus task criteria and we received 1 bonus air mile. Rojin recorded our mark on our recording sheet from the trip planners which we did not score a very high mark. We also discussed our characters, names, and personalities. We are starting our script today and that sums up what we did today.also our group has some ideas for our video. By: Gavin

Wednesday, March 12th, 2008
Today during block 1 since we don't have socials in block 4 we have been working on finishing our trip planners and talking about our roles and characters for our infomercial. I'm just finishing up my transportation sheet and Meghan is struggling to finish her Montana Jungle trip planner while Madison is brainstorming some ideas for our infomercial and Rojin is surfing the internet since she has finished her trip planner and has 2 back to back pages of information. We also got our logo back up on the site because somebody deleted it (by accident). Later we will add more to our site and start our script. And now we are done our trip planner. We are thinking about the script and tomorrow we will be doing it at block 4. By: Gavin

Tuesday, March 11th. 2008
Today our group worked on finding information for our trip planners and discussed how long we spend in each region at what hotels and cities. We also discussed the date that trip starts and date when it ends. Our group figured out the transportation for each region and we filled out more of our trip planner. tomorrow we will hand in our trip planners and will start on our script for the infomercial. Also tomorrow our group will figure our roles and characters for the script. We have lot of work to do. By: Rojin

Monday, March, 10th. 2008
Today during block 4 our group took our logo off the wall, we also researched our regions as well as the
the transportation. We figured out that we should plan our trip in February because we figure that since there isn't anything going on so it would probably be the cheapest time to travel. Our group still haven't picked an exact date to travel in February yet but we will most likely tomorrow. Another thing that me and Meghan did while Madison and Rojin were researching was that we checked out the Wiki more as well as we were chatting a bit with the other class on that my mouse. But we are all sure we will be even more productive tomorrow. By: Gavin
