A RAINY DAY IN LONDON … ER, DAVIS: Don’t let the double-decker bus fool you. It’s from London, yes, but it’s ours now. And those Eggheads, they can only mean one thing: This is UC Davis. And all those people (including the chancellor and the provost) have come together for the annual Guess the Weight contest, part of the Thank Goodness for Staff Celebration. Your task: Guess the weight of all the people and their umbrellas, the bus and the two Eggheads. Submit your guess during the TGFS Picnic from 11 to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday (May 9) on the Hutchison Intramural Field; look for the sign on the tent near the Vendor Showcase. Bill Payne Transportation and Parking Services snapped this photo on the Mrak Hall Circle. More information on TGFS and the Guess the Weight contest.
