My GF came last year and had a really great time, particularly at the pool party.
Alas, she still is not my wife, however...

Any chance that Larry/Craig can negotiate keeping the water slide open later for the pool party?
- Maybe we could cut a deal if we offer our own security lifeguards and station Scott Hamptone as the safety patrol for the top of the slide Wink

Steve & I will be renting a car. I'd invite the girls out for lunch but I'll be working with WAM while I'm at the conference. But I'd be happy to meet anyone on my breaks...

Looking forward to meeting you btw (JOEL) and your wifey if she comes along with you this year...

I'm way too excited that I get to go this year. It was my wife that insisted that I go. She's coming too, and got the guest pass.

She's cool. I'm a lucky man! This will be serious geeky fun.

Bored? Are you kidding? She'll get hit on by almost every guy in the place... and some of the girls too!

At a lot of conferences (or it was this way when I was a kid, anyway), there would be activities for the significant others. Nothing too earth-shattering, but stuff like tours, maybe a luncheon, etc. Nothing that the con has to pay for, necessarily, just an open invitiation for significant others to sign up for the group tour, or whatever.

Maybe someone has an ambitious wife who would be willing to organize a handful of daytime activities? I'm sure Craig could include a printout in the program, with the info...)

I'd volunteer my wife, but we're expecting a baby in April, so I don't think she'll be up for that (she's planning to come to the con with me, though!)

We could certainly arrange some kind of activity, a luncheon, tour, etc. if there is enough interest. If your sig other would like to see this happen, please respond to this thread and suggest what type of event she/he would be interested in.

I don't get to Tucson often enough to suggest many destinations, but a luncheon seems reasonable.

Are there many tour-type things in the area? Maybe a trip to downtown Tucson (the area near the Congress Hotel) for shopping/lunch? Might be a little hot for that...

I know there's a cool missile silo tour near there, but I don't know how much interest there'd be in it!

New Orleans was great for this sort of thing, my wife took several tours while I was at the Con in '05.

I know my fiance would be down for a lunch/shopping trip to downtown, or even just someone to sit by the pool with and drink mojitos (mojitos are optional). if it's a male significant other, i'd prefer them not to sit by the pool with her Very Happy

Thanks! It's very exciting, and slightly terrifying!


Maybe we should take Albini's lead and organize a big poker tourney for the 'guests'!

Or maybe a guest speaker to talk to them about Living With an Engineer - Strategies and Coping Mechanisms...

It could be hosted by the wives/husbands/significant others of some of the high-profile speakers, like Mitch Easter's wife (who my wife met in New ORleans and described as being 'A Very Nice Lady.'

Shalini is a very nice lady! Not sure if she's going to the conference this year. She just started a new job.
