Although a partner is not required, it would be nice of you to bring someone, either from class, or ask someone from the team to come with you.
Open to all members. With some extra money (well, there's no such thing as "extra"), we can get some T-shirts for the guys, wife-beaters for the girls, get more food/drinks at the parties, rent high-end sound systems, purchase costumes, alleviate some bills ... you get the picture.
