Thankful Thursday – Happy FGS Folks

FGS2011 is less than a week away. I am so excited!

This is my first major conference and I’m going by myself. I “know” lots of folks from the blogs and Twitter but I think I only have met in real life one person I know is attending. I have already made plans to attend the ProGen dinner Tuesday evening where one of the other Official Bloggers will join me. Then I’m going to the FamilySearch get together after that. Wednesday morning I’m having breakfast with Caroline Pointer. I have no lunch plans as I did not sign up for a luncheon that day so hit me up if you want to grab lunch.

Several bloggers have written great posts this week about making new friends and making first-timers feel less alone. Here are some of them.

If you see me at FGS2011 please say hello!

  1. I didn’t sign up for the luncheon on Wednesday. Maybe I’ll put the word out via Twitter that morning and see who shows up.

    Have you been to Springfield? I was wondering if there are restaurants around the convention center.

      I have been to Springfield many times. There are lots of very small places to eat near the convention center around that part of town. We have two hours break and probably a 10-15 minute drive from there is Dirksen Pkwy that has a Cheddar’s, Applebees, etc. not sure how busy they will be though. I will have a car. I’ll have to look around when I get there Tuesday morning on my way to the Archives and see what else there is I have missed.
