Welcome to Denver, Colorado.
Three of us are representing Columbus Outdoor Pursuits (Especially TOSRV, GOBA and XOBA).
What a difference!!!
Flying out of Ohio Wednesday with weather in the 40s and landing in Denver, weather in the 70s.
Everything went very smooth overall.
One Hiccup was very much beyond our control.
One of us had an almost 2 hour delay leaving Ohio, but was only 45 minutes late landing in Denver. While the other two left on time and arrived 40 minutes early and had to sit in the plane for 30 minutes waiting for the gate to move the plane already there.
SuperShuttle to the Hotel, check in, relax for about an hour, and off to check in for the event.
Roam around downtown, sight-seeing, Union Station, US Mint, Pepsi Center (Home of the NHL Avalanche and NBA Nuggests), Mile-High Stadium (NFL Broncos, used to host MLB Rockies, now at Coors Field) caught lunch at Ghost Plate and Tap
Conference Kicked off with a Meet and Greet Costume Party.
We met StarBuck from Battle Star Galactica, Couple of Avid Columbus Crew Fans, a Pirate, couple of Hippies, The 2nd Amendment, someone dressed as a bike rider, Hotel Manager (oh wait he was the hotel manager), Flapper (1920's dancer), Steeler's Fan, Friar, couple of Insurance Salesman (oh wait they actually were too), Brew Master, a witch, and so many more. The Inner child came out to play.
We were missing the Resident Alien tonight, he was stopped in the outer atmosphere to have a bevy with the Home Planet Security.
The winner of the costume contest was "The Dude" (as in the Big Lebowski)
At least the Avid Columbus Crew fans got an honorable Mention.
Tomorrow is going to be a very full day!
