Just wondering what the masses who attended the symposium in Phx thought about their experience? This having been my first national symposium I have nothing to compare it to on that level so can't make any comparisons. One thing i can comment on is how large and expansive the accommodations were compared to the number of people i saw using them. Big place for the number of people using it. Correct me if my number is wrong but I believe the attendance figure posted in here was around 1100 attendees??? Only real disappointment I had was I didn't buy a new lathe while i was there. But I didn't have to worry about not being allowed back into my house when I got back home either .
