I think I'll probably attend. I have a lot to get done between now and then to justify it and it's a hike. But, if I can get everything done and get all ready, it should be a fun 3 days...of sleeping in my car.
MP - well I guess that beer will have to wait until Kentucky. I hope you're not so thirsty that you keel over between now and then! Good conference, sucky dorms, awful humidity. I met some wonderful people and saw many old friends. Can't wait until next year (but I guess I have to.)
It was a good conference! Enjoyed meeting all the who's who and gleaming info & ideas from them. Stayed in a hotel room, so no comment on the dorms. The weather was not that bad...
One item that bothered me was that in almost every class (except maybe candle making) you heard over & over about the need for diversified pollen sources (and about shrinking forage areas) but when you ask whether the scientists were working on a bee pollen substitute, you heard that they were not. Would seem to me that since the need for a quality food is so important, developing one w/b way up there at the top of the list.
