Great, great event. My wife and I go every year. Don't let anything get in the way of attending. Every year it gets better; every year it gets harder to wait for August to roll around.

Thanks brian,

also from what I understand is that those that cannot afford the cost can either volunteer to setup / tear down or can apply for a grant to cover the costs of the confrence

We should be there if God is willing this would be our first one.

thanks for sharing your experience
