    APA Denver Conference get-together

    This thread is for the discussion of a possible Cyburbia get-together at the 2003 APA National Planning Conference in Denver, taking place between Saturday, 29 March and Wednesday, 2 April.

    Consider the following:

    The opening reception is on Sunday, 30 March. Can't miss that!

    University alumni receptions are traditionally held on Monday; this falls on 31 March.

    Many of us will either be packing or on the LoDo microbrewery crawl on Tuesday, 1 April.

    Everybody leaves on Wedneday, if not Tuesday night.

    My dogs and I will be staying at the Warwick, one of the official conference hotels. I'll have my car, but I'm not driving through the maze of one-way streets in downtown Denver with a healthy buzz.

    I'm thinking the best night for a get-together is either Saturday, 29 March, or Monday, 31 March after all the student and alumni receptions. I'm leaning toards 9:00 PM, at the Falling Rock Tap House, at 1919 Blake Street in LoDo. It was my local when I lived in Denver, it's not loud, it's accessible using the free 16th Avenue shuttle, and there's the opportunity to crawl to another LoDo pub afterwards.

    "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." Ben Franklin

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

    Just reference the "Where in the World is bturk #XX" threads, and the "Real Picture" thread for Planderella. No other incriminating pictures will be permitted.

    Saturday is the day that works best for me as well. My boss registered me for the LoDo Microbrew tour, the Comedy Night, and the Cajun & Blues Evening...so Saturday is really the only "free" night we'll have.

    While I won't be signing up for the conference, I think I can manage to fly in for the weekend. Saturday would work best for me.

    What about Saturday, Monday, AND Tuesday? I'll probably be out either way

    We are flying out on Friday afternoon and leaving Denver Wednesday morning, so we are pretty flexible. There's going to be a group of us though - hope that's not a problem. My sister and another of our friends is coming, Chad was convinced because of the cheap airfare and then my planner friend from WI is coming too.

    YEP! It's the town right next door, matter of fact, although I havent met her yet. I know her former manager and her new manager. Its a horrible place to be a planner though!

    Oh - and I spoke with her when she applied for a job with my department. She was on the short list until we had a hiring freeze, when she got snapped up before our freeze was lifted.

    OOOH!! I think I remember!! She had an interview somewhere, and she had said she talked to someone who she was going to apply with. I just emailed her to ask her who/where that was.

    Creepy!!!

    It sounds from that article that there is a bunch of crap going on there too. that sucks.

    To follow the procedures established last year...

    I move that the 2nd Annual Cyburbia Social be held at the Falling Rock at 8PM on Saturday March 29, 2003.
