7/9/02 - day two. This year was the first time I managed to register early enough to secure a room in the host hotel, ironically it was also one of the times that the particular hotel wasn't as important. Apart from the dinners which took place in the Marriott, the activities were spread over a several block area. As this included the city's convention center there was no shortage of convenient lodging. First to get under way was the swap meet. The West Virginia chapter was able to secure space under the highway, and vendors as well as browsers found easy shelter from sun, and, more importantly, rain.
