When Brian started his job in Chicago he was told the company would fly him home every other weekend. The first weekend he stayed I flew there to look at homes. Then he stayed a weekend by himself and struggled... so we decided to meet in Springfield, Missouri over Conference weekend. On Saturday we watched the first session then went rolling skating.
Whenever we meet McKinzie and Geoff halfway this will be where we meet. The hotel was great! The city is over 140,000 so lots to do. It's about 7 1/2 hours still. So it's still to far for a short weekend. But better than either one of us driving 15 hours.
