rj,
Where are you located?  I'm spitting distance to BR, 20-30 minutes, and was excited to hear that ABF conference was being held here.

That is, excited right up until I saw the admission prices...OUCH!  Too rich for my blood, I just couldn't justify it.

Moots I agree with you.  I had made plans to attend, until I saw those prices.  Oh well I will stick to our state meetings.

rj,
Long Island NY...WOW!  That's a serious drive.  Smiley

PM me and let me know what your schedule looks like, if we can meet up for dinner, that would be nice...If it doesn't work out I can at least give you some recommendations on eating places, or if you have some spots in mind, I'll give you my opinion.

Also, the Baton Rouge Club, CABA - Capital Area Beekeepers Association, meeting is that Tuesday night, the 7th @ 19:00 hrs, if you've got any interest of sitting in, guest are always welcome. 

Drive safely and I hope you have an uneventful trip.

Ill be down there as well - driving in from PA - not quite NY but still a ling drive!  lol   For those who think its a little pricey,  suggest that if it is remotely near you at some point, then you should really consider going at least once if anything just for the experience.  Its well worth it with all of the speakers and information out there.  State meetings are nice and you get to see some vendors, but the national or regional conferences like ABF or EAS/HAS are very good at bringing in some of the best.

DARN! ...And by "darn", I really mean a word that the forum won't allow me to type.  grin

rj and wild have me second guessing my decision not to attend.  Sad

I'm going to have to give it another look, although taking 3 days off from work just after the Holidays, might be a little tough to pull off.  I'd consider maybe doing the one day pass, although I think I could spend an entire day in the vendor hall, which would really leave no time for anything else!
