Wish I had the means to go… Funds are tight, right now.


(.) #3

I do not think I can make it.


(Larry G) #4

There are some really interesting technical presentations, some of them n things we’ve discussed here in the forum:

I sure wish someone would record them.

If anyone attends, perhaps they can post here and others can PM to make arrangements to meet up. It would be great to see some write-ups or video from these events.


(Larry G) #5

would anybody be willing/able to go if a collection were taken up to defray the entry fee?

Would anybody besides myself be willing to cough up $10-20 each in order to have a TSI forum rep attend on our behalf and report back, hopefully with video recordings of selected sessions?


#6

I’m only a 3 hour drive away, could possibly stay over at my brothers, not too far from there.

Might be able to record sessions, though it would be partly dependent on the policies of the convention.
