May 24th-28th, 2010
The Seminar began with early registration taking place
the afternoon of Monday, May 24, 2010, and late registration taking place
on Tuesday morning, May 25, 2010. A big thank you to WSATI Southern
Chapter Treasurer Rob Manning for the great
job he did processing the pre-registrations prior to the Seminar and for
processing the "walk-in" registrants at the Seminar. Rob handled
all the bookkeeping for the Seminar as well in the confines of the Seminar
office, out of sight of most of the attendees. Most of the attendees
had the opportunity to see Terry Cramer, Terry
Cramer (yes...Terry and his wife, Terry), Martha
Jones, Gary Labb, Cherryl
Valdez, and Geraldine Ward at the registration
table. If you purchased raffle tickets or WSATIwear, the attendees
had the chance to see Dave Ball, Tim
Glover, Stephanie Hile, Tim
Jackson, Delia Loera, Dave
Petrelli, Jeff Reeves, Chris
Wiggins, and Brian Yori. It takes
a lot of people to put on a seminar the size of this one.
