While some people like Lance Harra took the time today to attend one of the pre-conference seminars, some of the others of us just relaxed by the pool. Unfortunately, I also had other work to wrap up, so I didn't get as much pool time as I would have liked. Oh well, it's a rough life, and I know I won't get any sympathy from those of you still at your jobs this week.
This evening was the initial reception event / networking opportunity. It was good to catch up with folks I hadn't seen since last year, as well as meet a few new ones. I finally got to meet Rob Volk in person, and I must say that he's not as scary in person as his picture might lead you to believe. (By the way, Rob, I see that right now Tara is only 12 posts behind you. Better get movin'!)
That about covers the conference for today. A group of 10 of us went out for dinner after the appetizers and had great conversation. Looking forward to the kickoff keynote address in the morning!
