Please bring your own refillable water bottle or buy a lovely Roundup stainless steel water bottle for $10! We have learned that 150,000 barrels of oil a year are used to make over 189 million bottles in the U.S. alone, only 23% of which make it to the recycler. Good conscience prevents us from continuing to support this cavalier use of bottled water. Instead we are happily giving away water! Thanks to Pure Quality Water for providing the set up.
Travel Green! Carpool or Find a Roommate!Are there two people and four seats in your car? Please Fill Every Seat!The Roundup is a planet-friendly event. Please find your neighbors and carpool! You can also find hotel roommates.
Missed a past Roundup? Or just missed some of the talks? We have the solution! CDs from the 2006 and 2007 Roundups are now available. A compilation of 50 talks from the 2006 Roundup or 53 talks from the 2007 Roundup can be purchased now. (Follow the link for details.)
Pet PolicyThe Market Square is City of Fredericksburg property. Pets are not allowed on the Roundup (Market Square) grounds unless they are aides to the impaired.
