If I may be so blunt..... I think we're missing the point here. It's not
the heat or the scenery that's important. It's whether people will step
forward and do their part by volunteering to host and/or work on the
Organizing Committee so we have a conference to go to, no matter where it
may be held. Allen Press is making an incredible offer to us which makes it
much "easier" for the next Organizing Committee, whoever they may be. Allen
Press publishes our Newsletter and other publications that we have - what a
fantastic opportunity to be immersed in the printing processes of today's
technology. I'm sure Lawrence, KS has many redeeming qualities that we are
not appreciating at the moment - and I bet they are even equipped to deal
with heat in summer. Simply put, without people volunteering to do the
organizing, we'll all be staying home next summer to enjoy the heat we're
used to.
