Preparation for the season will continue to happen through regular team meetings every Thursday.

Outside of the meetings, the team is focusing on raising the funds for major competition entries.

“We’re selling discount cards for $10 each,” co-leader and junior Meera Chander said, “and (the cards) can be used at a multitude of places.”

Along with the discount cards, TechHOUNDS is also working with Simon Mall, which is hosting an event known as the “Simon Evening of Giving,” on Nov. 2, according to club sponsor George Giltner.

For every ticket a Tech-HOUND member sells, 70 percent goes to TechHOUNDS and 30 percent goes to a charity.

“The fashion mall will be open later only to anyone with these tickets,” Giltner said. “Selected stores will have sales on some items.”

According to Chander, the team is finding corporate sponsors as well.

Tomorrow, the team will have a “Latenighter,” which, according to Chander, is a social TechHOUNDS event that will include “team building activities, food and video games.”
