This is pretty interesting, Since we never get these conferences on the west coast this appears a good possibility. I might go if well enough. Anyone else interested?

I might go.  I wanted to help my daughter move in to her new apartment, but I may be able to do both.  You're right, those of us on the west coast don't seem to get nearly the opportunities for this kind of thing.
