    Not doing Denver, but hopefully whatever East Coast Cyburbia plans are made will be doable...

    I'll be there. You can spot me at the opening reception - I'm the one wearing the lamp shade.

    Isn't that on Sunday? What does that entail - food, drinks? For $60 (for Chad) I want at least a few cocktails.

    You guys going on Saturday?

    Nope
    el Guapo is a former 20 year +/- urban planner (just like you) who thought becoming an attorney was a good life choice.

    Typically there are a couple of free drinks at the opening reception....in Chicago last year there was an OPEN BAR (beer and wine)...very nice reception, best one I've been to in my 5 APA conferences...

    Nope, dammit!
    When Jesus said "love your enemies", he probably didn't mean kill them.

    There have always been several grads at the three other annual conferences I have attended. For the relatively small number of BSU grads out there, I bet the percentage attending the conference is high.

    I haven't been to one since Boston, so I'm really looking forward to this one.

    That was a classic southern t.v. moment!

    I will not be in Denver. Only the egg-sucking buddies of the director get to go.

    I wish. Ditto on the "budget crunch - no out of state trips". Sure would like to put a face to some of the folks that chat on this site.

    Fire up Chips! Beat the Dukies. I am proud to say that I attended this exceptional MAC school (Central Michigan) for two years before going on to Spartan-land. Go Green-Go White, for that matter.
