Notable Notes and Highlights:

  • The convention was held in a pair of Doubletree hotels located at opposite ends of a parking lot under the I-5 bridge on Hayden Island. Splitting of convention activities between the two venues led many people to answer every question with, "It's in the other hotel." One of the two Doubletree hotels utilized for the convention burned down in 2012. Detailed story of the fire can be found here
