Colonials fans are invited to make a team, check in at the Champions Club in the Smith Center between 7-8 p.m. then sit back, relax and watch the game.
A special clue will be announced between the second and third sets of the game. To register for the Colonial Quest, please visit the Welcome Week website. Make sure to follow @GW_Sports and @GWHallmark for updates on these great events and more during GW's 2013 Welcome Week.
