Close up of a poster. We had poster sessions every day.

There were no sessions on Wednesday, Oct. 11. Attendees were encouraged to explore the area. A3 had meetings and there was a movie night. Matt attended CPR in Brownsville.

The Thursday AM sessions (Day 3 – Wednesday does not factor in the day count) were delayed due to a power outage. Some sessions were presented outside with portable power and AV. We were back in the main hall after lunch.

Hanging out with the On X BC, and CalTopo guys. No lanyard? CalTopo did not have a booth. What were they thinking?
