Yesterday was quite stressful for us as we lost all the backing for our conference badges (3000 of them). As it turns out, the best we can figure out is that I went back to my car to get these very important badges, brought them up to the cafeteria where I got a snack, put them down on a counter while having an extended conversation with the owner of the coffee ship, then just forgot them there. Today, John, one of our key volunteers found them in the cafeteria in a corner. So, the end of the story is our awesome printer (CPS California Print Services) stayed open late on Friday for us and reprinted all 3000 badges. They did not have enough thick paper which is why some of your badges were on not as thick paper.
With 213 Total Sessions and 3778 (about 60% came so far) people registered, we all had a lot to do. Having moved our main area to the campus center, we had a lot of new tricks to learn. With our fabulous group of about 200 volunteers, I’d say we all did an awesome job. A big thank you to all the volunteers, and also to all the people who did not sign up to volunteer but chipped in anyhow. As always, the speakers did a fabulous job. Our big thanks go out to them in a big way also!
