    You know, they’ve announced all these new conventions yet, I haven’t seen one actually happen. Like Atlanta for instance, they announced that over a year ago and nothing since then.

    Well, okay. Too bad it’s not at Eugene or Bend instead. The problem with these conventions is that it’s always required driving over a thousand miles to get to one of them. So now they have one that’s in Oregon. Yippee. Barely in Oregon. But Oregon larger than most of your Eastern states by far and Portland is barely in Oregon. So now I only have to drive 400 miles to get there. Yippee. With the price of gas, that’s still prohibitive, I’m sorry to say.
