M and I are looking forward to San Diego very much. It’ll be the first trip without kids since we’ve had kids… It’s a wonderful destination by all accounts and our hotel sounds great! We’re imagine some nice meals without children, sleeping without said children or cat waking us up or hogging the bed (that’d be the cat…), and generally spending some quality time together amidst going to the book room, sessions, receptions, the book room, and such. And did I mention the book room? (In previous years this is normally where we’ve run into AKMA…)
In view of the fact that this is a place to meet people, network, etc., M has graciously relinquished Sunday lunch from just being “us” time and we’ll do a meet-up for those interested.
I’ve never done one of these events before let alone “hosted” one so I’m not entirely sure of the protocol. In terms of both convenience and budget, I’m thinking that if there is a foot court/feeding area in the main hotel that should be our venue. I’ll say 12 arbitrarily as I don’t have a schedule in front of me to know if that’s a logical time or not. Please leave logistical suggestions in the comments if you know of a good way to arrange all of this. In any case, if you’re interested and available, shoot me an email at the address listed on the side-bar so I have an idea of how many we’re looking at.
