...and the planning begins... On a side note I always hate that format... I wish it was better laid out in blocks... I always end up putting all the info into a spreadsheet to make my decision making easier...

I read through them on line, and then mark up the program after I register.  This year has so many that I want to see, but of course they are many conflicts. It is a good thing that the presentations are posted on line now after the conference, so one can review the ones that were missed.

If you do put it in a spreadsheet would you share it please?  Which seminars to attend and which ones to listen to?

I'm pretty sure once you open it you can create a copy of it and then edit it... I usually mark the backgrounds of the seminars I want to go to with green, the ones I don't with red, and leave the ones I'm unsure about in white... I usually change the time headers to a green back ground once I get a seminar in that block picked as well.

I can't attend the conference and look forward to the podcasts, no matter when they are posted.

And thanks goes to AHA for posting the podcasts so we can still hear the presentations.

Okay... so I lied about the time saving thing. I went ahead and added comments to the original file so I wouldn't have to click back and forth. Includes full descriptions and speaker names.

Should be able to download it from here and see all of the comments:

nice, yeah I mostly threw it in the blocks to make scheduling easier.  This is pretty handy though so you don't have to keep referring to the website.  Thanks.

The blocks were great, doubt I would have attempted it if the framework wasn't there! Quick copy/paste job for me.  8)

hey, are there any legal limitations on serving samples during seminars this year?

Such as not before a certain time of the day ala Philly?  Or perhaps certain commercial beverages not allowed if not distributed in MI, that sort of thing?

...just trying to make a fully informed decision on where I spend my time.   8)

I know that Moonlight Meadery is not allowed to serve their Sour Mead because of distribution laws.

Sample will be limited to only a few seminar rooms.  Drew and I decided (too late) that we wanted to serve samples, but were told that our room was one that wouldn't be equipped for it.
