I wish I lived closer to Seattle so I could attend this one.  I like the list of guest speakers.


I was very disappointed when we missed The Amazing Meeting in Lost wages NV last month.  We were there last year and it was fantastic.  My lovely husband is deeply involved with their (James Randi & JREF) webserver.  You can find the James Randi Educational Foundation at http://randi.org/

Cool! That's just a one hour ferry ride away for me since I live in Bremerton just across the sound. I know the hotel too! Nice place! So if anyone decides to come up for it I volunteer my services as a tour guide and we can all go together.
