Great first posting and now maybe they will be easier to do for you! I met many great people at the conference and had a mixed reception from people. Once I was able to talk to people I was good but seemed like I painted myself into a corner by wearing an orange shirt and people thinking I was staff. Funny now but could not understand why people kept coming up to me and asking me questions about the conference. Live and learn! Also being one of the few guys there was a little separating so to say, but I am used to that as well since most of SP is women and most to all activity is women, men just aren't very active as a whole in SP it seems. I will just keep making a showing and hope to change this a bit.
Glad you posted and you live in a very beautiful and fun place! Glad it was held there and look forward to future conferences! Don't be a stranger and post away!
