    I was so impressed with the speakers and attendance. Akron SSA did a great job. Hard to believe this was their first conference. Way to Go Akron SSA!

    This was my first secular conference, and I really enjoyed it. As usual, it's great to chat with so many enlightened people

    We're not venturing out. Meetup won't let me change the RSVP. Have fun!

    It appears as I may be coming down around 6-ish today, so if everyone is out to dinner at that point, I'd like to know where, so I may join in.

    I have a work event in the morning so I plan to catch the afternoon talks.

    I'm thinking about Lockview for lunch and Cilantro (which comes highly recommended) for dinner. Just FYI, in case people want to look at the menus beforehand.

    • Marni H.

      Just a side note on this, too, everyone is invited for a late evening dinner at Lockview also. There is a combination going on - dinner at Lockview or a showing of "Milk".

      October 18, 2013

    • Marni H.

      Lunch is from 1-2:25pm, and dinner is from 5:30-7pm

    Sorry, I have a family obligation and will be gone most of the day.

    I would like to drive with somebody (or with a group). Does anyone live on the East Side and would like to drive together? This would create a good opportunity to talk about the event afterwards and I would get to know at least one person in the group better. I'm new to this Meetup thing, as you can guess.

      What time would you be coming back? And where will you be leaving from?

      October 16, 2013

    • Marni H.

      We'd be leaving from Richmond Heights, and we would be there for the entire conference, and we're not sure about the dinner afterwards, or whether we want to stay for the movie they're showing. Sorry I can't be more specific.

      October 17, 2013

  • Sharon W.

    Do we need to register for this? If so, how?

    October 16, 2013

  • Michael A. H.

    I'd really like to go, but I know I can't get there until noon or later. Is that ok? Can I show up whenever?

    October 14, 2013

    • Mark T.

      Sure! Pop in whenever you can.

      October 14, 2013

    • Michael A. H.

      OK...I've got a lot to do Saturday, but I'm going to give it my best shot to get there

      October 15, 2013

  • Marni H.

    The doors open at 9, the event begins at 10. Those of us manning a table must be in the building to set up by 8:30am.
