    I'll go along with Peggy's comment. Where are those extra stars when they're needed ? A fantabulous convention in every way imaginable !!

    This convention was as well run as any national convention of the big name groups, like AA or FFRF, that I have been to. Thanks Barbara and the rest of GLA for making this such an enjoyable and educational event.

    A wonderful event! GLA has proven that we are capable of a lot more than we may realize. An outstanding accomplishment.

    Good job Barb and thanks to all who helped and showed up. Special thanks to all who contributed financially. I think everyone enjoyed all the speakers and of course thanks to them. Loved it across the board. The videos are lacking in sound and lighting but that was expected. The couple I looked at are good enough for youtube and I will start editing tomorrow. Hope to insert graphics. I thought the hotel did a good job for us although parking was a bit of a chore and the elevators are lacking. We didn't get the social room set up till late last night because of a glitch. Sorry everyone didn't get notified about the copious amounts of amber fluid flowing in room 1124 after 10 o'clock. Frank Zindler made it up and Jerry Dewitt chilled for quite awhile. Jerry actually told a lacivious joke! I did not intend to spend the night but after I had a few beers the crowd forced me to drink a few more. My happy hour today occurred when I took a nap at home. And god damn, the mayor showed! YES!

    Enjoyed the great lineup of speakers and meeting new and interesting people at this GLA Convention 2013. Comments in this regard are well expressed below by an attendee, Keith Bernard, which is worth reiterating here: "Kudos to Barb (and Mark, Niki, and many more) who put Toledo Atheists on the Event Map! Great speakers, fine venue, added attractions (including the off-program event at Mark's room), and exceptional attendees. It was great fun to be a part of this!!!

    An absolute success. So many wonderful people attended. A fantastic line up of speakers and range of topics. Most importantly a collection of the nicest, most approachable, and funniest group of new friends a person could hope to meet!
