I'm happy to say the weather was fairly cooperative except for the first evening in Steamboat Springs.  During the lecture, thunder, lightning and wind accompanied pounding hail.  Those of us with rental cars were relieved to see no hail damage!

I should thank Mike Kintgen and his host of volunteers from both Denver and Steamboat Springs.  It took an extra effort to smooth over bumps in transportation.  Well done!

These reports have made me very envious of those who attended.  We'll be visiting with our Minnesota attendee this Saturday.  Can't wait to here her stories....

Glad you enjoyed the Conference, Claire, and have shared these pics with the Forum.

Have they announced where the 2017 Conference will be held?

One day I'll get back to the States for a NARGS event!

Hi, Fermi,

The only announcement was for the 2018 AGM, to be held in Newfoundland.  Todd Boland gave a brief presentation on the last night of the conference.
