Last night I checked in at the Radisson Hotel in Salt Lake City, dropped my luggage in my room, and headed to the SLIG check in. Christy Fillerup, Director, has done a fantastic job pulling this institute together. The check in went so seamless, everyone that had arrived had picked up their materials within the first 25 minutes!
After I picked up my name badge and course materials, I headed to the refreshment table. Let’s just say I was happy.
I found the table with my course label, sat down and met my fellow classmates. I’m registered for Thomas W. Jones’ course, Advanced Genealogical Methods.
I also spotted lots of friends from past conferences, institutes, and Facebook. It’s great to catch up with everyone.
I quickly discovered I forgot to pack several necessary items: my business cards, BCG pin, power strip, and eye shadow. Ouch. I phoned Bruce and asked if he planned on coming up to SLC sometime and would he bring me these things.
He agreed but said I owe him big time.
I’ll try to post at the end of each day a synopsis of my classes.
