2ish works for me! I will be the one ecstatically leaping across the parking lot with aluminum pans, eggs, oil and enough brownie mix for a hundred people! Wohoo!!

For those of us who can't make it, can we please request for a video-recording of the talks, if any?

The parking lot is across the street.  There are a few parking spaces by the church building- how about you park right outside the door until we help you get those things unloaded?=)

WE have a volunteer who has generously offered to try and make that that happen for us.  I am so amazed I am not yet able to completely believe in our good fortune, so I am afraid to promise.  But that is our goal, and there are good people who know what they are doing who are volunteering their time and energy to make that happen.

I was going to offering my stirring expertise...but I realized the time change between Chicago and Remington is going to get me there an hour later. However, I can still help clean if I get there in time.

Um, thank you! That is nice. However, I am slightly a control freak of possibly epic proportions who might possibly be freaking out about brownies, mixing, supplies, oven temperature, aluminum pans or what-have-you at that approximate time and wouldn't want to accidentally start yelling at any helpful people who may or may not be passing through... So... Um.

I'll just hug you at the conference! ;)

Send my gratitude to that anonymous volunteer, Hopefully things work out! I'm in Singapore so obviously I can't make it. :-(

Remington is in Jasper County which is on Central Time, the same time as Chicago. I live in Indiana and I didn't know that until someone else asked earlier in this post (or another one about the conference). I hadn't known what county Remington was in.

Do other states have as messed up time zones and time history as Indiana? Most of my life Indiana was not observing DST until 2006. There was a debate about whether we should be in Eastern or Central. The IN government chose Eastern except for a few counties. Then the federal Dept of Transportation stepped in and changed which time zones some of the counties were. I think DST is kind of silly myself but I also feel IN is too far west for Eastern. (OK, mini-rant over.)
