I just hope the knockout party is a little better than last year.  But it was the first one so I'm willing to give it a pass.

What was it that you didn't care for?

It just seemed so unorganized, dark and uneventful.  Some of it could have been just me having enough NHC though. 

It just didn't have the same atmosphere as the social club after the banquets I was used to.  Again, could have been just me but I saw a lot of people leaving early.  Maybe they all had to get up at 4am to get to the airport like me.

This will be my first HBC! I live about a mile and a half north of the convention center, so it's easy.

I recommend anyone looking for accommodations try out the "name your price" bit with priceline - using the "Convention Center/Lloyd Center" neighborhood and 3 stars. Chances are you will get a decent deal at the Marriott Courtyard down the street from the convention center.

as a medal winner, was it really important that I stand outside for a half hour before I could come in?  Eventually I just wandered over and came in anyway.

Agreed

This isn't a "knock" on it so much as an observation - the conference is over early enough at this point that I may just drive up to see family in Olympia Saturday afternoon rather than stay an extra night in my $233+tax/night hotel room.  Hmm...
$233 a night?  You must have gotten the Cider Maker of the Year suite.
