For years, I have hosted informal dinners for newsletter readers shortly after the close of major conferences. Last Saturday, 52 of us met high above Springfield, Illinois on the 29th floor oft he Hilton Hotel. We sat and watched the sun go down and lights appear for as far as the eye could see. All this was accompanied by steaks, chicken, salmon, salads, and a variety of pastries. It was my kind of event!
The dinners are always held after the conference closes as I don't want to compete with any of the conference activities. The plan is simple: food, drinks, door prizes, and great conversation. I think we succeeded this time.
After the dinner, a number of door prizes were given away. The grand prize was an iPod Touch, won by Carol Harker.
I do expect to hold a similar dinner in Salt Lake City on February 4, 2012, shortly after the end of RootsTech. Details probably will become available a few weeks before the event. Stay tuned!
