I have been to this event every year since the first.. I am excited to see Cathie Ryan coming back, as she gave one of the most memorable performances on the last day of the event.. Sunday afternoon, pouring rain.. only 5 or so of us sticking it out.. and she invited people up onto the stage to get out of the rain. I didn't go.. I stayed in the rain.. but, I will never forget it. I take time off from work every year for this event.. that normally falls on my birthday.. (this year it's a few days before).. I've never regretted it.
