T-6 hours to go!

Convention is rapidly winding down. As of press time, there are about 138 resolutions left to go! In the end, there were just over 500 resolutions brought to General Convention 79, so while a great many have been worked through, there are still quite a few to go, and...

General Convention Day 3

Thoughts on Convention

This is my 3rd General Convention. I feel like I’m almost an old pro. But this convention feels different than others. Perhaps its the fact that it is held in a town I know very well. But perhaps there is also something different in the air. This year, we are not...
