Thanks for getting this organized, Conda!!

 

I already checked my office calendar... I should have enough vacation/personal days left this year to cover all my Japanese Festival rehearsal/recovery days AND still be able to take 2 days off for the KC meetup!!

And I might even have enough Southwest credits stocked up to cover my full airfare to and from KC.

I've never been to a meet-up. Sounds SO exciting. Would love to get to meet you all. I've got it on my calendar. Don't know if I'll stay at the hotel. Would probably drive back Sat night and return Sunday afternoon (unless I can get someone to take over worship at our church. There is a special charge conference, too and DH is very involved with that - don't have a date for that yet and he would want me to be there.) Have you chosen a hotel, yet?
