Warpstock 2011 a Great Success!

ArchiveIt's official: Warpstock 2011 was a great success.

Throughout the course of the weekend, I kept hearing about how good the food was, how comfortable the accommodations were, how fantastic dinner at The Pit was on Saturday, and of course (over and over), how informative and well done the presentations were. The Warpstock Board is eternally grateful to all who participated and worked so hard to make this year's event happen.

A special thanks to our Meeting Coordinator, Rima Bose of Meeting Smart, for her tireless efforts at finding us the venue, presenting us with options for the social outing, for arranging transportation for Saturday night, and for negotiating such excellent contracts for us.
