I hung out at the library till almost two this afternoon, got a few nibbles at Safeway, then headed over to Okanagan College. I was tired and looked forward to just being parked.
Upon landing, I knew this event would be nothing like my experience at the seminar in 2011. I was expected and promptly directed to a space reserved for my truck. I then went to register and wasn’t on the list… Turns out I should have specified that I’m an instructor. 🙂 I got a blue badge denoting my special status, plus food tickets for coffee breaks and the Sunday night buffet. I was also told where I could find the ladies shower and bathroom.
I got my paws on a schedule and learned that I am the second speaker on Sunday morning. I decided what I want to attend and have a full weekend ahead of me.
I spent most of the rest of the afternoon working on some website issues, then joined everyone for a wine and cheese (and fruit and cold cuts) meet and greet… Under a glorious HOT sun. Yay! A few of us had been in Abbotsford in 2011, including John from Sani Dumps. I was singled out as the person who came the longest distance. 🙂
Then, it was time to try out those much appreciated shower facilities!
I’ll likely turn in early with a movie as tomorrow will be very full. There is apparently going to be live music in the evening. This is going to be a great weekend!
