As we get closer to the event I just want to take one last opportunity to thank the staff that works so hard to make this all happen. All of these people dedicate their vacations and a lot of thier time leading up to the event without any reimbursement other than your thanks and mine.
You may notice a new feature on this page that has pictures of some of them (The rest can be a bit camera phobic sometimes). Please do take the opportunity if you get the chance to interact with anyone to thank them for the time and effort they put in to make this all possible.
Also, if you're on staff and didn't get a chance to get a picture in, it's not too late! We'd love to add you to the Flickr page while we still can if you have a photo for us to use.
And finally, if you think you might be interested in helping out, I encourage you to talk to some of us when you get on site. Whether you have a few hours to spend or you think you want to join us for a more dedicated commitment we can always use help.
