NWHS Conventions

How many members of the society are at the age of having children that still
live at home? At 36, I would dare to say that I am one of the youngest
members of the society and don't recall seeing many families at the past 2
conventions that I have attended (Williamson and Strasburg).

I attended a work related 5 day convention during late October in Tampa, Fl
and my wife managed just fine with our daughter, whom attends daycare during
the week. Speaking of which, my wife leaves for San Diego tomorrow for a
work related 4 day convention and I will manage just the same as she did
when I was in Tampa.

Besides, dont most parents look forward to the beginning of the school year
so they can regain a bit of sanity that was lost during the summer months?
Not being hostile, just asking questions and stating what is obvious to
these eyes.

Best Regards,

Todd Arnett

Maybe.... but a lot of families have kids and during the school year is more
difficult to go in the fall....

Why are the conventions always held during the mid-summer months? Would it
not be better to have the conventions during the fall months so folks can
enjoy cooler temperatures and the fall foliage while railfanning the
city/town that the convention is held in?

Nothing worse than hight temps, high humidity, insects, and a sea of green
foliage filling the camera frame.
