Each morning during convention, Convention Snapshots magically appears on tables in the convention area, giving us information about what's going to happen that day as well as a recap of the day before.
Well, actually, there is no magic involved. Shelley Mitchell, editor, works into the night preparing it. It is printed overnight and delivered to the hotel the next morning.
You can read Convention Snapshots even if you are not attending our convention. Just click below:
- Friday, April 13 -- Snapshots #1
- Saturday, April 14 -- Snapshots #2
- Sunday, April 15 -- Snapshots #3
Thank you, Shelley, for another job well done!
