Symposium 2009 Pictures
« on: August 17, 2009, 09:49:50 am »
I am going to start this off with a snap of the opening session, just to show the interior of the Drake and the size of the Grand Ballroom:



If any one has trouble uploading pictures, please PM me, and I will send you my email address. You can email me the pictures, and I will get them uploaded to photo bucket for you. I can then post them for you, or send you the links so you can post them.

I am home all day today, so let's see all those group photos!

Steve

PS: can you spot Phyl in the picture?

great pic! thanks for sharing Cheryl/Steve! will post desilu/Ann's tonight.... or my head will roll if I don't!  BTW, anyone get the pirates at lunch?  Boy, did the dr's bee-line for our pirate table or what!?  3 docs (Dr. Wiet, Dr. Slattery and one other, I can't remember) saw us pirates at our table and came right to us! Told Dr. Wiet yesterday that next time I'm in town, he's buying lunch.. and he told me I had to do so dressed as pirate! :)  He's a scurvy scallywag... I can just feel he is!

Saving the best for last, here is a meeting of some hat owners who brought their hats.
Phyl was of course busy volunteering, introducing a workshop speaker at the time.

This is Jan, Kay, DHM, Steve, Capt Deb, and Debbi. We also have finger puppets from Capt Deb. Apparently something was funny.  ;D
