Going to Jamboree!

I've registered to attend the 2011 SCGS Jamboree in Burbank, CA next month.  I've been going to this conference for the last 8 or 9 years.  I remember attending when the Jamboree was held in a "basement" (I think it was a basement, I remember going down, down stairs) in a hotel(?)  But they've "come a long-way baby." 

It's an event I really plan for.  I'm staying Friday and Saturday nights at the Marriott so I can attend all the dinner banquets, breakfasts and some of the lunch sessions.  This is a first for me, I usually only attend a dinner banquet or two, so I'm really looking forward to everything.

A friend from my local genealogy society will meet me there on Friday.  She's taking in the Thursday workshop (I have to work that day so I can't).  We're both attending the Saturday breakfast.  She's going to try and get a ticket for Friday night's banquet.  Hope she can.  It's really so much fun when you can share the same experience.


  1. I'll be there too, and I hope to meet you there, Gayle!

  2. Great! I hope to see you there. I'll be at the blogger's area a lot, so stop by and say hi. :)
