Shuffling off to San Antonio

Well sports fans, I am making my final preparations to leave for the weekend to go to San Antonio, TX. I am a member of the board of directors of the American Institute of Parliamentarians, and we are having a board meeting for the weekend down there. It should be a pretty good time--I really like the people on the board, and I am starting to feel as if San Antonio is my home away from home (I've been there twice in the past year or so, and I will be going back in July). The River Walk, great Tex-Mex food, temperatures in the 60s and 70s (although it is supposed to rain)--it shouldn't be too bad at all. Oh, yeah...I guess I do have to sit through board meetings.

Still, in a group of parliamentarians, board meetings can be quite an adventure. First, everyone in the room knows Robert's Rules of Order really well--you never know what parliamentary maneuver you are going to see. Second, our president this year is truly an artist as far as presiding goes--it almost chokes me up watching him handle motions, points of order, votes, and anything else that comes his way. We have joked about selling tickets to come watch him at our annual session this year as a fundraiser. I mean, I'd buy a ticket...

But, this means that I'm probably going to be out of commission in the blog world for the weekend. I don't really know the internet capabilities of the hotel we're staying at, but I will certainly take my laptop and my wireless ethernet card. I guess we'll see. Have a great weekend, and be sure to get a good jump on dead week!


At least you HAVE a dead week!
