Well today was a much busier day here at AADB. There were things to do and
people to meet.
I helped out with the raffle whose drawing will be held tomorrow. I looked
at some silent auction items and put in some bids. I came back to the room
and rested for a while before the opening ceremony.
We had the opening ceremony tonight where several things happened. It
started with the singing of the National Anthem and "Oh Beautiful", both of
which were done very well. One of the teens from that program did the
signing for the National Anthem. That had to be a thrill for her.
We next had Lynn give some announcements about the symposium. The
communications coordinating team was introduced and all of the team leaders
were introduced. That goes up to letter P as they're doing it by letter
this year. The team leaders are the ones delegates go to if there are
problems with SSP matches and the like.
There was next a plaque given in memory of Tom Sprinkle, a former Board
member, who recently passed away. After this was completed, we had the
introduction of the board. After that was completed, there was the call of
the states and then questions from members. These questions ranged from
issues with the symposium to issues outside of it.
All in all it was a jam-packed day with more to come tomorrow.
One more thing about the restaurant. The food is good and there is plenty
of it. I had a chicken Cesar salad for lunch today. When it arrived, I
could not believe how big it was. It had to be one of the larger salads
I've seen. Last night I had a grilled cheese BLT. Before you think, yuck
or whatever, just know that I wasn't sure how I would like it either.
Actually it wasn't bad at all. It was certainly different.
Now off to catch some zzs as things start early tomorrow.
