2014 AAW Symposium
Apr 10th, 2014 at 11:12pm
 
I know its a bit early, but I just wondered if anyone is planning on going to the June 2014 AAW Symposium in Phoenix. Has anyone ever been? If so what did you think? Likes/Dislikes I am thinking about making the trip with my wife.

Been to one previously - San Jose year before last. The AAW symposium is total immersion for three days. Great demos with people that you may not be able to see work anywhere else, amazing work in the galleries, and the comraderie of people as obsessed with turning as you are. What could be better...

The only downside is having to decide between being in two different places at the same time. I'm planning to attend this one.

It is kind of sensory over load. I will be in the vendor area, look me up. I will be next to Doug Thompson. Unfortunately, Dave Schweitzer won't be there.

I don't qualify as "local" since I live in The Cayman Islands, but I have my plane tickets, room, and registration all booked and paid for.  I am getting in on Wed. night.

This will be my second symposium lasts years in Tampa was my first.  It will be great to meet a bunch you folks in person.

Jim, My daddy taught me not to wear hats inside.  somehow that has stuck and even though most people do these  days I just can't do it.
Does that make me old or just old fashioned?
How about pins or stickers for the name badge?

When you get there, check in with Robo-Hippy in the vendor area.  His booth is right next to Doug Thompson.  We can coordinate meeting through him.

I am the "Vendor Ambassador" for the symposium. In short, that means I coordinate a bunch of volunteers that help the vendors with whatever they need during set up and the run of the symposium. I will be in the vendor area all day Thursday during set-up and then in and out during the event.

Who else is going to be here in Phoenix?
