            I know Mike will be attending anyone else from these forums? Grant is looking forward to meeting Mike, Dr. E, Mr. Ballsy, Steve Pake, Dr. P., Kim Jones, and the other speakers/presenters; along with other TC survivors.
            Grant hopes to spread TC Awareness around EAST TN when he returns.

                            TWO MORE DAYS TO GET REGISTRATION AT $99!

                            October 2nd is the last LAST day at $99


                            It will go up to $129 after that, because that's when we have to give vendors final head counts.



                            This is all nonprofit. Believe me, nobody is making a dime on this. I think we're just barely at break even or a little in the hole, but close enough that nobody really cares. This is going to be totally awesome! My God, look at all these amazing people? And we already have people lining up to come next year who couldn't come this year? What have we gotten ourselves into? (Already starting to talk informally about 2018 already, lol)
