A huge storm rolled through Virginia a couple of hours before this outdoor event. We lost a number of presenters who could not drive through the torrent, and the guests dwindled down to about a dozen, so we moved inside and had a cozy cocktail party.
One Williamsburg tradition we have is if you submit your slides, but can't show up for the presentation, we will present for you, ad lib. We had one of those this evening, as well as Dale pulling out his very first presentation slides to fill in the roster.
It was a great evening filled with great conversation, more snacks than we could have possibly finished, and a rather cozy group of presentations in the living room.
