More details in the park’s flyer for the event.  No reservations necessary. Signs will be posted on the Longwood University campus. For directions to the campus go to www.Longwood.edu. For more information contact Dr. David Coles at 434-395-2220 or Patrick Schroeder at 434-352-8987 ext. 32.

Another great lineup of speakers this year.  The organizers continue to impress with the quality of speakers, and breath of coverage.  For that reason I always mark out time each year for this event.

Jarman Auditorium proved an excellent venue last year.  Given the “tech friendly” campus at Longwood, I’m going to try some blogging from there during the day.  I’m not much into the “live blogging” so perhaps more or less posting my notes after each presentation.  We’ll see how that goes.

So if you are down that way, be sure to look for me in the audience.
