What will keep you coming back to NABCs?
Peg: When I was still living in Philly at the first Philly NABC in 96, I was on the organizing committee, when there were far fewer downtown hotels. Since the Marriott just opened, and they wanted the publicity, we were able to negotiate unbelievably inexpensive rooms @ the site ($100/night ...

ART: No complaining about difficulties in plowing side streets in my former hometown, please. (I moved for a job out-of-state in 1996.) Until the early 21st century, NO TERTIARY STREETS EVER were plowed in the City itself. During the Blizzard of 96, I had to organize my neighborhood, in shifts ...

What will keep you coming back to NABCs?
The only way to reduce room costs in to avoid having nationals in the downtown area of major metropolitan areas, which seems to be the schedulers' way of thinking. I think there needs to be a balance -- it should be interesting to see how the NABC planned for Columbus, Ohio ...

Craig: The ACBL has "come around" to your way of thinking. This is the last Hawaii national.

AGREED - Great job, Joanne and Bob. Looks also like the attendance (at least for the first few days) for a Spring national is very good.
