One full day is in the books. Nothing too eventful.
This morning we finished moving banners and signs into place around the convention center and firing up all the projectors to make sure everything worked. Our first event was Mark Matlock’s, Real World Parents from 1:00 p.m. through 6:00 p.m. Instead of the Critical Concerns Courses (CCC’s), 6 Intensive Labs started at 3:00 p.m. and ran through 6:00 p.m.
I set up for Duffy Robbins and Denise Van Eck. Once things were rolling, there was time to relax , chat, and catch up on some reading.
So far change is not evident. There are maybe a couple hundred attendees here, and only the Intensives are happening. Convention “feels” like convention.
Tomorrow will be the real test. The seminars (now called labs) go full swing in the morning. The Intensives run from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. while the first set of labs run from 10:00 to 11:30 p.m. The first general session (now called The Big Room) will officially kick the convention off at 1:00 p.m. with the second set of labs at 4:00 p.m.
It will be a full day of moving video equipment and gear from room to room. But the speakers are super cool and usually great to talk with.
Now, I’m watching/listening to the Phillies game as I’m finishing this up while working on materials for Crossroads this Sunday. My day begins at 7:00 a.m. with a staff meeting and prayer walk, quickly followed by set up.
So, I’ll be back on Friday with an update of everything happening in Cincinnati! Till then…
