Sorry to read about Pat.
I believe he was at the Latvian in SF I attended years ago. As for Palm Desert, CA. I love that place. Great golf and scenery. Take a gondola to the restaurants inside the hotel. It made up for the complete dog of a place in
Greenleaf, FL. like a bad religious retreat camp. Wood, green paint and bugs. As for the Denver event held at the Denver Coliseum (built in 1952) complained
about: The day before our move-in (a Monday for a Friday-Sunday event), the
place was holding a rodeo. We get in
and they just put down temporary flooring on top of the dirt and horseshit. I was in charge of food and it was a lot of work. We had healthy options, but it was a
bitch to do (for the first time we used cash registers). A lot of dedicated volunteers helped out [thanks]. I had great seats but fell asleep
in five seconds. Rejoice. Oh yea/sure.
Just another excuse for an expensive tour -- all expenses donated (not for me, but by me).
