    Kevin, is there any charges for the train ride and what is the charge for the buss? Looking forward to this weekend, Cynthia and I will probably be there on Saturday.

    Who else is going to be at the convention?

    I'd dearly love to go, but I have been committed to be elsewhere for years.

    As a long time member of both the MP Historical Society and frisco.org, I'd love to be at the upcoming convention, but no can do. Have fun!

    The train tickets are $58.00 per person which includes lunch. At this point, I am not sure that the A&M will let us add anyone else to the list, but you could purchase a ticket direct from the RR at the regular rate. The bus to the depot at Van Buren will cost $15.00 per person. That's the best deal we could get with short notice.

    Marriott Courtyard, 900 Rogers Ave, Ft Smith.

    Today was the first full day. Based on the crowd reaction, my presentation was well received.

    Well Murphy's law came to our house, something came up at the last minute and we can't make the convention. Was really looking forward to go.

    I very much enjoyed the convention with a lot of neat information shared. Upcoming model releases were not discussed. Tomorrow, I will see about getting my presentation posted on the Cape Girardeau thread.

    It was a good time. It was great to meet some of the Frisco Folks. Keith's presentation was excellent.

    How many Frisco website members where at the convention? There hasn't been very much talk about the event, which is surprising.
