    I live in Toronto and am working on one of the committees of greeters to direct people to the meetings, restaurants, etc. It's been really great to be involved in this whole thing. It's also the first time the same city has hosted the conference twice. Toronto also had it in 1965. The main speaker was Bill W. :eek3:

    Well I have already extended an invitation to a couple of out of towners. Your best bet is to reserve a room with your conference registration, or stay in the dorms at University of Toronto. It's only about 15 minute walk to Skydome and the convention centre. You can also buy a 4-day transit pass for $9, unlimited travel anywhere in the city. For more info, go to http://www.aa.org/default/en_services_aa.cfm?pageid=39

    I know how to sign up. I've got a spot on a floor for $20 US a day, which is what I usually kick someone anyways at a convention. I just hope I keep my string up of not being arrested at the convention. I was arrested naked 2 conventions in a row lol

    Toronto is maybe a 12 hour drive from Virginia. I've driven through there on the way to Florida. With 2 drivers, it's a breeze. Plan on staying a few days extra, there's lots to see here.

    I won't be able to take that much time off work, as I'm going to college in the fall. It should be a ton of fun, though.

    Conference starts tomorrow(June30-July3)

    This is the biggest convention Toronto has ever hosted. They are expecting over 50,000 people coming to town. I've already met people from all over the U.S. and Canada, Europe, Japan, quite a few from South America too.

    What's really cool is seeing the photos of just these HUGE stadiums completely filled with people. Amazing
