Ok... I just got back to my room, which is across the street from the Crown & Anchor, which is where we went after the event.
Can't post all about it now, but I will say that it was A W E S O M E.
The convention itself was fascinating -- the content was incredible. Videos, information, pictures, Big Red, stickers.... All the presenters pretty much knocked everyone's socks off.
The convention hall was pretty much ideal, I'd say. The air was a bit stuffy in the afternoon, but whatever. Not a big deal. The layout and facilities were great.
I videotaped a bunch of stuff, but not everything due to copyright concerns. I should have some great video and pictures to post, as should others. Give me a couple/few days.
Oh, and toward the end of the convention, something awful happened. It was terrible. It was just awful. So terrible and heartless. Why?
Then, the Crown and Anchor. What a crowd. It was really a great experience meeting these people. Tomorrow, Dr. Gilly invited us to visit his lab, believe it or not. So the events aren't over yet!
Erich Orser and Melissa are incredible people for doing all they did on this. Too many thank-yous to dole out right now, though. Plenty of thank-yous are due.
To everyone reading this who couldn't be there -- you were missed!!!
