hotels: $514.81
meals and misc: $100
event registration: $35
stuff from gift shop: $20

grand total: $1140.97, which is a little less than my expected budget of $1200.

had a great time, enjoyed driving Datawiz's 'minivan' for the short trip to/from dinner saturday.

totals above do not include material costs of Iron Chef's 'ban hammer' nor Dixievet's cutting board.

look forward to attending next year, assuming it is not further away. Bowling Green is about my limit.

thanks all, videos will be posted once uploaded.
I drove a total of 2135...haven't tallied the gas receipts yet...all said and done, I probably spent around where you did, give or take

qft.

'if i had a hammer.....'

my next project is our new kitchen, all other projects will have to wait until that is done, hopefully by this fall at the latest. you know where to find me.

heard on the radio on the way home about Santa Rosa (about 90 min from here), they have a 'blue hole', unique fresh water place you can go diving. news to me.
